The purpose of the Cornerstone Project is to encourage and recognize lodges that plan, implement and manage a well-rounded yearly lodge program that promotes lodge activities, brotherhood, charitable work and involvement in the community.
Although good planning and strong management is an important component for the overall success of our lodge, it must never be forgotten that in order to maintain the momentum in our lodge the members must have a compelling idea of where the lodge needs to go, what type of members it will attract, what benefits it can provide and how the organization needs to be perceived in the community if it is to thrive.
