If you want to attend the training, but have not been recommended, you need to obtain the recommendation of your Grand High Priest, Grand Illustrious Master, or Grand Commander before contacting Mrs. Palmer.

Although there is no charge for the training or the textbooks and training materials, each student, in addition to enrolling with Mrs. Palmer, must also register for this York Rite Conference/Department meeting and pay the registration fee. You are also responsible for your lodging, transportation, and meals. Your registration fee for the conferences helps offset the cost of the training space.

When students arrive at the conference, they must check in with the conference registration desk. On the morning of the training, between 7:30 and 8:00 AM, all students level 1, 2, and 4 must register also at the leadership registration desk near the training rooms. Students will not attend any part of other conference sessions on the day of training. You need to be in the proper classroom at 8:00 AM. The three levels must be taken in order, however; you may attend any of the levels at any of the 8 regional conferences throughout the country. Conference information is available at

Level 1 and 2 classes will begin promptly at 8:00 AM and end at 5:00 PM with an hour break for lunch and morning and afternoon 15 minute breaks.

Level 4 students after registering at the leadership registration desk will attend the new “Communication Skills” course from 8 AM to 5 PM.  

PLEASE REMEMBER to register for any meals including lunch and the Banquet – you must register with the Conference and have tickets.
