M.W.Bro. Radu Balanescu
Grand Master of the National Grand Lodge of Romania
The National Grand Lodge of Romania has had the distinguished honour to be elected by the delegates who attended the 11th World Conference of Regular Masonic Grand Lodges, which was held in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia, on the 12th – 14th of May 2011, as the organizer and host of the 13th session of the World Conference of Regular Masonic Grand Lodges that is to be held in May 2014.
Therefore, the 13th World Conference of Regular Masonic Grand Lodges will take place in Bucharest, on the 14th – 17th of May 2014. The works of the 13th World Conference will be followed by the Annual Communication of the National Grand Lodge of Romania, which will take place on the 18th of May 2014.
The session of the World Conference that will be held in Romania shall be marked by an ample program of Masonic communications (Workshops), which will give the opportunity to the representatives of every Grand Lodge from the Universal Chain of Regular Freemasonry to partake of the experience and challenges of the international Masonic life. The main goals of these Workshops are the exchange of Masonic experience, the share of realities of every Grand Lodge, the share of our common interests, visions and projects, so that the participants could be able to come to a common and unitary vision in addressing globally the Masonic matters and in identifying common guidelines for the general interest of Universal Regular Freemasonry.
The Masonic program shall be complemented by cultural and artistic events, by a wide variety of touristic tours and by the Ball of the World Conference, which are addressed to Brethren, as well as to their Ladies and other members of their families who are accompanying them.
Having the conviction that the standards of organization of the session of the World Conference that will be held in Romania shall meet the expectations of all the Brethren who encouraged and supported our Grand Lodge in organizing this Conference, I extend to you, to your Lady and to all your Grand Lodge Officers or Brethren from your Grand Jurisdiction the cordial invitation to the 13th World Conference of Regular Masonic Grand Lodges and to the Annual Communication of the National Grand Lodge of Romania.
