If a Lodge is approached to allow a tower or antenna to be placed on its property, under no circumstances should a Lodge sign a contract.
that does not fully release the Lodge from all liability to third parties and for any damage to the equipment. Don’t trust these telephone, cable or communication companies. They will try to take advantage of the Lodge every time. These companies will not offer a fair price, but they usually pay more if you negotiate. The rent should also have an escalator clause (if any of these companies want long-term lease, it must be approved by Grand Lodge).
A local attorney should review any and all contracts like these. For any further advice, please contact the Grand Lodge Insurance Department at 1-773-755-4715.
