Entering a Foreign Affiliate
This edition of the MORI screencasts covers the newly modified Add Foreign Affiliate screen. This new screen simplifies the entering of information and the communication between your Grand Lodge and you concerning the progress of the petition.
Remember, a foreign affiliate does not need to be from a foreign country. "Foreign" in Masonic speak means anyone from outside your grand jurisdiction. So, if you're in the Grand Lodge of New York, then somebody from the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts would be a "foreigner."
One other thing to remember about the Add Foreign Affiliate. You must go step by step. You can't enter a lodge until you've entered a grand jurisdiction. You can't enter any events until you've added his previous lodges. Get as much information as you can from your petitioner in order to make the process as easy as possible.
