The UGLE Universities Scheme Conference is a Bi-Annual event, the last conference was held in Chester in November 2019. The University Lodge of Chester was very proud and privileged to host the event at Cheshire View, Christleton.
The 2022 Scheme Conference was held at the Mercure Hotel, Bristol on 26th March and both Paul Rogerson (Universities Scheme Liaison Officer) and Norman Jinks (Deputy USLO) attended the Conference on behalf of the Province of Cheshire.
The day was consisted of a full agenda of seminars and talks by a wide range of speakers, some of the topics covered were:
Universities Scheme Strategic Review
Resources & Communications
Masonic Charitable Foundation
AMULL (Association of Medical University and Legal Lodges)
Conference was pleased to receive a very warm welcome and introduction from the Scheme President, Sir David Hugh Wootton and the Scheme Chairman, James Hilditch.
The theme of this year's conference was "Moving Forward", a combination on how the Scheme moves forward in it's new reporting structure, how Scheme develops now that almost all Universities are represented, but more importantly how the Scheme Lodges move forward to become leading lights in their own Provinces, by implementing UGLE initiatives and how they move forward from the pandemic.
Copies of the programme are available on request from the Lodge Secretary.
