This doman was originally for Chamblee (now Chamblee-Sardis) Lodge, then for the Fifth Masonic District of Georgia, then finally for my position as Custodian of the Uniform Work for the Fifth Masonic District of Georgia.
Although I've offered this space to the new Custodian of the Fifth District, he doesn't seem to want it. Since moving to North Carolina, I've remade the primary page for my Odd Fellows lodge; below are things that I believe will be helpful to Georgia Masons.
Here are some Georgia Masonic resources that I've put together and/or found useful.
Map of Districts
Since the Map of Districts (which I've found very useful over the years) has mysteriously disappeared from the Grand Lodge website, here's a link to a small cached version I found: http://morelight.org/mased/ga_dist_map.png
Good news, everyone! I have located this map again, in pdf format: https://glofga.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Georgia-Masonic-Districs-v2.pdf
Candidate Care Checklist
A tool to help mentor the candidates' advancement and development.
Degree Planning Checklist
A tool to help the Director of Work plan the various roles during degrees.
New Mason Development
I personally recommend the following schedule for new Masons in their first year after being raised - before taking an office or joining an appendant body!

Work & Lectures
From February, 2007 to January 2010, I produced a pdf newsletter, for the Metro Atlanta area (originally targeted for members of the DeKalb County Masonic Association), called Work & Lectures. By July of 2007, each issue had an overall theme.
While the "news" aspects have long expired, these issues can still be a good source of information for lodge education programs and personal education. Hopefully these still hold some educational and/or historic value. :)
