An Expression of Gratitude

The Conclave Staff

A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to Mom Athena Mock and her Conclave Staff. Without them, we would not have a Conclave. They put in countless hours of time and effort to make sure the Conclave Experience is enjoyed by EVERYONE.

We love you all, and look forward to many Conclaves to come!!!

The Athletic and Ritual Staff

Another big part of Conclave is our Athletic and Ritual competitions. Dad Jason Sinnott and Dad Shawn Lopez make sure these events go off fairly and without a hitch. They also have dedicated much time and effort to make sure these events are first class.

The Grand Lodge of Free & Accepted Masons of Florida

For their generous sponsorship of our Tuesday Night Grand Banquet!


Your 2022-2023 Officers

Conclave 2022 is finished, and your new State Line is eager to get to work to make DeMolay Florida the best that it can be. You will see them a lot over the next year, so make sure you say "Hi", or ask for help if you need it. They are here for YOU, our members, who are the MOST IMPORTANT part of our Order!

Thank you ALL!!!
