The policy of Esoterika Lodge №227 is not one of presumptive progression through the officer line. Rather, we hold that excellence in the performance of subordinate offices demonstrates fitness for higher offices, and that the most appropriate brother should serve in each station or place. Thereby, we promote order and harmony in the lodge, and assure that we continue to accomplish our important mission.
