There is a group that meets at the big conventions called the "Invisible Lodge". I am not a Mason but my mentor is. I have been wanting to join since moving to Florida but I don't know any Mason's to sponsor me here.
Cheers,

Last year, the Invisible Lodge had its first convention all by itself in Ft. Smith, AR. You didn't have to be a Mason or even a member of the Invisible Lodge to attend. The convention was open to anyone and was very well attended. I attended, and it was a very good convention. I don't know if there are any plans for another convention, but it would be a shame if that were the only one.

My Grandpa was a Shriner and I still have his Fez. I thought about joining when I visited the Masonic Lodge in Philly (the Gianormous one).

You know there are quite a few people out there who do still think that Masons are somehow evil/unChristian, etc. Perhaps the Masons should do a PR campaign?

MCM...

A 'PR Campaign' flys in the face of everything the Masons believe in...They are one of the only 'ultimate' secret societies...Much of the work they do (charitable) is done in secret...They often do not ask for any recognition or thanks for what they do...

This is one of the basic charters of their work.

As far as what others think of them, honestly, they could care less...It matters very little what the uninformed masses think.

There is a lesson in that, I think.

The masons also donate 1.5 million dollars a day.
The masons have more money than the red cross.

I had been learning some magic from the Great Mr. Ash here in Chicago when I was firsat starting out and it wasn't until the 5th visit or so that I noticed he was wearing a Masonic ring. For some reason, I thought that just added to the mystical vibe!

I don't want to be a Mason, but I would like to have one of those rings!

I hope the Masons don't get upset about my Fez. It's just part of my Fakir persona....
I believe that the only treasures that we have in heaven are the secret ones/gifts that we don't get repaid for here on earth. Is that what Masons believe?

Margarette is correct and it was a very good convention. Let's hope it happens again.

I am a proud mason. I first became interested in the masons after learning how many of our magician fore-fathers were masons. Houdini, Kellar, etc. Not to mention Washington, Ben Franklin, Jefferson. Pretty good crowd in my opinion.

I am only an EA but am interested in joining the IL when I am a Master. I can't wait to be a Shriner. Sadly I don't know of any local (colorado) masonic magicians.

The shriners run 22 childrens hospitals, and they don't ask for reimbursement of the medical cost. Good group of guys.

I think Jefferson was a mason. I guess no documentation has ever been discovered. But it is widely believed that he was a Mason. A few of the founding fathers (John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Millard Fillmore, James Madison) condemned Masonry. But most scholars believe Jefferson was a mason.

I think most mason's are referred to as "garden mason's"
meaning they don't really have secrets or know what's going on.
or they don't practice any form/ritual for attaining a state of recognized divinity.
