Regional Divisions - In Virginia, we have 57 Masonic Districts, which are located within twelve regions throughout the State. Each region has a Grand Lodge Committee Member appointed as Division Provost. The Division Provost's duties include, but are not limited to, acting as liaison and communication link between the Committee Chairman and the District Educational Officers. All members of this Committee must have a broad knowledge of Freemasonry and strongly believe in its principles. They should be good "teachers" in their own right, with good organization skills, able to get along with people and be able to devote the time necessary to do the job properly.
