Monday, 6 February 2012

In 2009, a few months after its appearance on the international scene, APMR makes the first step towards the international affairs in Brazil. The establishment of relations with GLEG and the President of CMSB at that time were important for the Agency and have proven to be a long-term relationship.

Thus, between July 11 to 16, 2009, APMR became the official international promoter of the most important annual event of Regular Freemasonry in Brazil. APMR promoted the 38th General Assembly of CMSB in close collaboration with the Grand Lodge of Goias whose Grand Master was also President of the Confederation.

It was the first time in history when CMSB's General Assembly was broadcast via internet in real time in three languages​​: Romanian, English and Spanish. Over time the relationship between GLEG and APMR was strengthened, becoming a strategic one.

Gladston Charles Rezende Reis (Advisor of CMSB's President) saw a significant rise in the Grand Lodge, and currently serves as Grand Secretary's of Press of GLEG. the professional relationship between APMR and GLEG became in time a standard model of international collaboration applied worldwide by APMR.

On October 19, 2009, GLEG's Grand Master issued the 222/2008-2011 decree, recognizing APMR's merits in the promotion of CMSB and other several Masonic event in Brazil. On August 30, 2010 APMR adopted the sections 1 and 3 of the Declaration of Belem, issued by CMSB. Also in 2010 APMR's Secretary-General issued a decree through which Gladston Rezende became APMR's International Correspondent for the Federative Republic of Brazil.

In 2010 and 2011 the partnership with GLEG was maintained and APMR promoted the 39th and 40th General Assembly of CMSB. In 2011 it was elected a new leadership of CMSB and APMR's Secretary-General welcomed the new team, pledging to continue cooperation in the future, a gesture welcomed by the Grand Secretary for Foreign Affairs of CMSB. Also in 2012 APMR pledged to promote CMSB's General Assembly, this year being organized by the Grand Lodge of Acre.
