Event description
W Bro. Tony Harvey identifies seven key membership facts and offers a successful approach to Lodge growth, plus a facilitated Q&A session.

About this event

W Bro. Tony Harvey draws on his experience of membership development in both Scouting and Freemasonry to identify the key issues that Lodges should address if they are to grow their membership.

In this talk, Bro. Harvey looks at why people join a membership or community organisation in the first place, how Lodges can use that information to bring suitable new members into Freemasonry and what they can do to retain members and grow their Lodges.

This live talk will be followed by a Q&A session specific to the topic, after which Bro. Harvey is happy to remain on the call to chat about wider Masonic matters.

Please note: you will be required to log in to a Zoom account to access this talk. Only those clearly identified as having booked will be admitted to the call. Therefore, please set up your Zoom profile name and provide us with that profile name at the time of booking.

Organiser W Bro. Tony Harvey, PJGD

Organiser of Masonic Lecture, "How to grow the membership of your Lodge"

W Bro. Tony Harvey has held active roles in the membership, mentoring, secretarial, learning & development, charity and communication areas of Freemasonry.

Tony conceived, and between 2015 and 2020 was the main author of, the Members’ Pathway (see In June 2019, UGLE’s Pro Grand Master described the Pathway as a “game changer.” In February 2020, one of Freemasonry’s most respected social media influencers called it “one of the greatest innovations to Freemasonry in the last 100 years”. Lodges that have used the Members' Pathway report new optimism about the future, a growth in members and improved retention.

Tony has held a number of Masonic lectureships, including the Prestonian Lecture in 2012 with, “Scouting and Freemasonry: two parallel organisations?”, and has delivered talks in every Province in England & Wales, in a number of UGLE's overseas Districts and in Lodges in other jurisdictions around the world.

Tony's talks and articles combine historical analysis with an understanding of organisational development to promote a forward-thinking approach to Freemasonry, based on the evolution of our Lodge practices while retaining our fundamental meaning and purpose.

Tony is a grand officer in the Craft, Royal Arch and Mark and in two other Orders within English Freemasonry. He is currently the Provincial Membership Officer in Nottinghamshire and the Head of Learning & Development in West Kent. 

Professionally, he is a coach, speaker and consultant specialising in leadership, change and organisational development. His published books and articles focus on his own model of personal and organisational change, the Success Cycle.
