Membership is for men, 18 years of age or older, who meet the qualifications and standards of character and reputation, who are of good moral character, and who believe in the existence of a supreme being.

A man who wants to join a Lodge must be recommended by two Master Masons in good standing in any Lodge recognized by the Grand Lodge of Virginia. He must understand that his character will be investigated. After approval by the members of that Lodge, he will be accepted as an applicant for membership in Freemasonry.

If you desire to join a Masonic Lodge and share in the fraternal fellowship, you will need to determine which Lodge is nearest you, contact the secretary of that Lodge for information regarding the fees for application, and arrange to meet with two members of the Lodge, who will consider recommending you for membership in the Lodge.
