Frequently Asked Questions

About the Conference

Who is able to attend the Conference?

At this time, the conference is open to all active members of DeMolay in Pennsylvania and Beyond. We encourage brand new members to attend to get the most out of your DeMolay Experience. Talk to your Chapter Advisor and submit an application when they open!

 

Applications from outside of Pennsylvania must be approved by your respective Executive Officer prior. 

What's the Difference between the Online Course & the Conference?

Our entire philosophy of KeyMan University is to accompany the online courses with a real-life, first hand perspective with leadership opportunities, team building workshops and interactive experiences that you can only get at KeyMan University.

Nothing will replace the conference, but KeyManU will enhance your leadership education for years to come!

What Department Should I Choose?

Good question and lucky for you, there’s no right answer! That’s part of the excitement of coming to KeyMan. If you have an interest in Ritual & Performance, come out and learn your favorite part. If you’re interested in how the world of DeMolay marketing works, communications and media is for you.

We have many different departments to choose from. My best recommendation? Ask someone who has attended KMU in the past, get some feedback and do something that interests you!

Where is the Conference Hosted?

The Grand Master on behalf of the Grand Lodge of Pennsylvania and the Masonic Village has graciously allowed us to use Patton Campus as our annual conference location.

Patton Campus is a 3-Building, 165 bed facility with a full-size heated swimming pool, inside and outside gym and a catered dining room for all meals.

KeyManU Online Education

What is the Educational Portal?

Pennsylvania DeMolay has been host to the conference for well over thirty years. With the effort of growing with the times and innovating when we can, Pennsylvania DeMolay and the KeyMan University administration is proud to announce KeyManU.

 

KeyManU is what YOU want to learn, how YOU want to improve and how YOU can get the best DeMolay experience through online tutorials and workshops from your own home!

Workshops and tutorials from all different walks of life, focusing on our primary courses, we offer free DeMolay-related education to all members, advisors and supports of DeMolay.

How many workshops are there?

As this program expands, we will be taking on new staff to develop additional online workshops and enhancing the program.

Is this replacing the KeyMan University Conference?

In short, NO! Really though, we have no intentions of ever replacing the conference. KeyManU is here to enhance the program and encourage members to truly ‘take it home’ when it comes to what they learn at the conference.

How do I get Involved?

We’re always open to new ideas and how-to’s provided by members, advisors and especially past KeyMan University alumni!
