Welcome to the Masonic Civility Ambassadors Program.
We see, hear, feel and, thus know that the world about us is becoming increasingly uncivil. We lament this fact, and fear the kind of world we may leave to our children and grandchildren unless something is done.
The question is: What can be done about it?
And, more to the point, what can we as Freemasons do to stem the tide of this rancor and hostility and bring civility as a revered quality and tool back to private and public life?
To meet this challenge, the Worldwide Civility Council (WCC), a consortium of Freemasons, public leaders, and communication luminaries in the field of civility have created a number of tools and programs, including the Urgency of Civility conferences, the Certified Civil designation, our written and spoken word Civility Scorecard assessment tool, the Civility Shop, featuring a number of books, educational materials, and civility themed swag, and our Masonic and Community Civility Ambassadors Training Programs.
What does a Masonic Civility Ambassador do?
The role of the Masonic Civility Ambassador is to articulate the principles of Civility to members of their Brothers, their Lodge, and encourage these principles throughout the Fraternity. At the same time, as a trained and certified civility ambassador, you are encouraged to make yourself known as such to service clubs, youth organizations, school assemblies, civic groups, local governmental officials, etc. and to solicit their active support in bringing Civility back to Society.
With the help of the WCC and your fellow Ambassadors, you will learn to: 1) identify appropriate audiences for presentations; 2) contact appropriate organizational leaders and arrange for presentations to take place; 3) tailor the presentation for the specific audience; 4) deliver the presentation; 5) evaluate the reception and acceptance by the audience; 6) suggest revisions or additions to the materials (as appropriate).
