This title is a new volume in Lewis Masonic's new series of practical guides for Lodge officers. In each volume author Richard Johnson takes one of the Lodge offices and gives clear practical advice to those taking on this role for the first time. Each book also serves as a handy reference guide to the role for the more experienced officers. The Director of Ceremonies volume also contains useful advice for the Assistant Director of Ceremonies. The Director of Ceremonies role is vital in a Lodge to ensure that everything that happens in a lodge meeting and at the subsequent meal is performed exactly as it should be. As well as looking at general ceremonial practicalities the book also examines out of lodge functions and the important role of man management for the Director of Ceremonies. The book concludes with appendices giving a handy checklist of duties.
