Provinces

The United Grand Lodge of England has 48 Provinces within England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Isle of Man.

The geography of Provinces is roughly based on the old county boundaries and each Province is presided over by a Provincial Grand Master, who is assisted by various Provincial officers.

Some of the many roles within a Province include a Provincial Charity Steward who looks after their charity activities. There’s also a Provincial Membership Officer who leads on recruitment and engagement of members, and a Provincial Communications Officer who leads the Provincial Communications team.
