We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for this upcoming Advanced Initiation Training workshop later this year:
Tahuti Lodge in the Valley of New York City on the weekend of May 6 – 7, 2017 e.v.
This training is designed for Chartered Initiators who have already attended one or more Initiation Training workshops held by a CIT and/or an SGIG and are looking to advance their knowledge, understanding and abilities as an Initiator.
