NYMC Conference 2018

The New and Young Masons Clubs Conference is the largest annual event for New and Young Masons Clubs in the United Kingdom. For the first time, the NYMC Conference will be crossing the border as The Colonnade Club welcomes committee members, representatives and leaders of the Craft to the Province of South Wales.

Please join us on Saturday, 27th October, 2018, at Cardiff Masonic Hall. We will be discussing what deliberate steps we can take to improve the Masonic experience for new and young Freemasons.

Tickets cost £20 per delegate and is open to committee members of NYMCs or representatives from provinces without an NYMC. There will be two plenary ‘feedback’ sessions during the day to share group discussions with the conference at large.

In addition, there will be a key note speech before each plenary session to guide and inspire our discussions. After the Conference, we will be enjoying an Initiation ceremony at Universities Lodge No.5461, where the Immediate Past Chairman of the Colonnade Club will be in the Chair! We look forward to seeing you there!
