How it Works When You Visit a ValleyWhen you witness a degree at any Scottish Rite, NMJ Valley, the Valley Secretary or his designee will validate your passport. They may also scan your membership card, which will record the witness date and Valley within your Scottish Rite Member Center account (known as Journey 365). When You Witness a Degree OnlineIf you witness a degree online through a Thursday Night at the Rite event, your online passport is automatically updated at the conclusion of the event within Journey 365. The next time you visit your Valley, stop by the Secretary’s desk for the stamp of that degree for your physical passport. Set Up Your Member Center AccountIf you have not set up a Journey 365 member account, you can create one at any time. If you need assistance, please see our registration guide, use the help button on our website in the lower right corner, or call the Help Desk at (781) 465-3352. The Gold Passport Once you’ve seen all 29 NMJ degrees, you are eligible for a Gold Passport. To receive one, your Valley Secretary must validate your passport by completing the last page in your book. The validated passport is then sent to the Supreme Council, which recognizes your accomplishment by sending a certificate and Gold Passport to your Valley. Each Valley is different on how they congratulate members for receiving a Gold Passport. If you have any questions on what your Valley does, please reach out to your Valley Secretary. Once you complete the Gold Passport, meaning you have seen all NMJ degrees at least twice, you are eligible to receive an additional recognition; a Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret pocket jewel. This jewel is a token of this great accomplishment and acknowledgement of the time and resources you have dedicated to the Scottish Rite, NMJ. As before, each Valley has different ways they present these awards, please contact your Valley Secretary with questions. Learn more about the Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret Recognition.
