Past Masters

The Master of the Lodge is a person of special trust and authority within the fraternity of Free and Accepted Masons. He is a man elected every year and serves from January to December. Service as Master of the Lodge requires a level of effort and dedication that deserves the recognition of the craft.

Often, members who have previously served as Master of their Lodge will append "PM" for "Past Master" to their salutation in written communications.
