I am the Office Manager for the Province of Cornwall. I have worked within the Province now for 17 years and in that time I have met some wonderful people whose generosity of spirit and charity giving is inspirational.
My role in the Province is to provide administration support to the Provincial Grand Secretary and the Executive. I am the first point of contact for Lodge Secretary’s enquiries, providing support with such topics as Lodge summons content, New Members enquiries, Registrations, Bylaws amendments – and many more!
I am the first contact for emails and callers to the Provincial Office where a wide variety of enquiries are replied to. I support the Provincial Grand Secretary with the administration of Provincial Honours, receiving of recommendations, collation of the honours committee files, notification to individual members and notification to Lodge secretaries for awards given.
I assist the Provincial Grand Secretary with the Annual Provincial Meeting, issuing invites to other Provinces and individual members, taking bookings for the lunch and meeting.
For the Provincial Sunday Lunch, I support the Provincial Grand Stewards organisation of the event, by issuing invitations to the Lodge secretaries, taking bookings and collating the table plan.
