To encourage more brethren to visit other Lodges, the Grand Lodge has initiated a Traveling Gavel in each of the seven Masonic Regions. Want to get your hands on a gavel? Well, you better get traveling!
Whenever the gavel changes hands, both the presenting and receiving Lodges must complete the documentation certifying the exchange. All Lodges receiving or releasing the gavel must email the Grand Secretary notifying him of the exchange within 24 hours.
