Lodge offices each have a specific role crucial to the smooth running of a lodge, meeting, or degree ritual. Taking on a specific chair comes with responsibility, and pays in experience and opportunities for leadership. Braden, for many years, has been blessed to have an excess of bright, intrepid men of all ages willing to take on new roles.
Some officers are elected, and some are appointed by the incoming Worshipful Master. As in most Minnesota lodges, Braden uses a progressive line where, by tradition, officers normally start at the first line chair and moves up a chair (or more, as needed) each year until he is elected a warden and ultimately Worshipful Master of the lodge.
