If you are new to a Shrine, your information is entered into our database called WebFez as a candidate. The Nobles of Nile Shrine will vote as to whether you will be allowed to join or not. You will be notified on the results of that vote. Typically this takes place at one of the Closed Stated Meetings, but sometimes it requires a Special Meeting, especially during the summer months when Nile is considered "Dark".
Once you have been accepted, you will then need to go through either our Cold Sands Ceremonial or the Hot Sands Ceremonial. Hot Sands is typically held in November and if your petition has been received shortly before this ceremonial, you will skip the Cold Sands. In any case, you will then be considered a Nile Noble and will receive a Fez and a temporary membership card.
Your Nile Membership card and a Certificate will be mailed to you shortly afterward.
If you are not new to a Shrine, your information is entered or updated in our database and your payment will be processed. You will receive your membership card in the mail shortly afterwards. A membership vote is not required.
