In Masonic Lodges, there are Non-Progressive and Progressive Officers which are appointed each year at the Installation of the new Master.

Each year, a Brother moves through the Progressive Offices on a journey from Steward, via the Deacons and Wardens, to the highest honour within a Lodge – the Master.

Non-Progressive offices are usually occupied by members who are Past Masters of the Lodge and tend to be occupied by the same person for a number of years, to provide continuity and experience.
