Resolution 11-06 Restoring the historic roll of Entered Apprentices passed.
This means stated meetings will now be open on the 1st degree, allowing all Entered Apprentices and FellowCraft masons to attend.
As per MW Lowe, this will likely take effect at the January stated meeting.
Edit: As per Most Worshipful Lowe, this is effective October 1st, 2012
