Kent Installed Commander’s Lodge
The Kent Installed Commander’s Lodge (KIC) was consecrated in 1992 and as far as we know is the first Past Commanders’ Lodge to be founded with the express purpose of investing Provincial Royal Ark Mariner Grand Ranks within the jurisdiction and dignity of the fraternity.

Membership is available to Installed or Past Commanders of any Royal Ark Mariner Lodge in our Constitution and who is also a subscribing member of another Kent Royal Ark Mariner Lodge. Click here for an application form.

The Lodge meets twice a year on the first Friday in March (Installation) and September. Like KIMM, the meeting venue is purposely rotated around the Kent Province to make travel arrangements fairer to such a large membership.

As well as providing a distinguished venue for the investiture of Provincial Royal Ark Mariner Grand Rank, each newly installed Worshipful Commander of the Lodge customarily presents a paper of his own choosing for the attention of the Lodge and their visitors.

It is customary whilst serving as W Commander of a private Lodge to visit other local Royal Ark Mariner Lodges. It is another advantage of membership of KIC that it affords the opportunity to meet up with other Commanders with whom acquaintance may have been made during your year in the Chair. Just like KIMM, every member of the Provincial Executive belongs to the Lodge, and therefore an easy situation to meet them informally for a friendly chat or to share your views.

If you are an Installed or Past Commander and wish to become a member of Kent’s premier R.A.M. Lodge, you just need to download the membership form, fill it in, and send it to the Lodge Scribe, to whom any queries should also be addressed:-
