With Grand View software, lodge management is a snap and many of the time consuming functions of a lodge secretary are automated for speed, accuracy, and efficiency.
Lodge location and contact information are easily edited. This information feeds directly into the Lodge Locator functionality, and changes happen in real time.
Lodge officers are easily added and changed with notifications going to the proper places. The information is easily searched and reports can be generated for district or jurisdiction directories.
Lodge Secretaries can add correspondence to the system and that correspondence is distributed to the proper destination whether it be to members, neighboring lodges, or the Grand Lodge.
Events can be added into the system and notifications are scheduled in less than 5 minutes. This allows secretaries to set an event and forget about it. Email, text messages, and even voice notifications are automated so all members are made aware of the event and reminded accordingly. (There may be additional costs for voice messaging.)
From the Lodge Interface, member rosters and statuses are easily and intuitively accessed and managed. From a single screen you can view all Master Masons, Fellow Craft Masons, and Entered Apprentice Masons as well as candidates who have petitioned your lodge. This at-a-glance layout greatly aids and assists the lodge secretary and ensures that members are not forgotten or overlooked.
Forms, Processes, and Educational Materials
Secretary specific documents are easily accessed through the portal and important information can be stored and readily accessible by lodge secretaries. This includes: processes, procedures, checklists, and more. Not only can the secretaries access documents provided by the Grand Body, they can also upload Bylaws to be accessed by the members and Grand bodies.
Grand View takes the frustration out of annual reporting and per capita dues remission. Simply put, the information that annual returns are calculated upon is right there in the database. All of the collateral information and backup can be easily accessed and reviewed. From the financials tab Lodge secretaries can view monies owed to the grand lodge and the grand lodge can record the receipt of payment.
