Host Lodge
This year’s symposium is hosted by Academia Lodge № 847, California's oldest Traditional Observance lodge. Academia Lodge was constituted in 2004, and has provided a strong program of Masonic education to Freemasons of Northern California ever since. One of the fundamentals of Academia Lodge is our monthly celebration of Lodges of Instruction, in which original Masonic papers and reflections are shared in a candle-lit tiled setting, and then discussed during the formal agape dinner following. Attendees of the MRF Symposium will have an opportunity to experience this essential aspect of the Traditional Observance lodge model.

Host Facility
The Oakland Scottish Rite has kindly provided the setting for our conference. Attendees will enjoy the beautiful architecture of one of California’s finest traditional Masonic buildings.

Registration Cost
The cost is $175 per person, excluding flight and hotel. The fee includes all meals and refreshments.

Lodging & Attractions
The conference’s official hotel is the Executive Inn in Oakland. Shuttle service will be provided to and from the Temple. Registrants should mention the Scottish Rite for a discount.
Another good hotel option is the Marriott at Oakland City Center (5 minute taxi ride from the Temple).
For those who would like to venture outside the Temple for meals and refreshment, there are two excellent lakefront restaurants nearby; the Lake Chalet across the street, and the historic Terrace Room one block away.
