Twice a year, The District Grand Lodge of Madras (DGL) meetings are conducted during the months of February and August. These meetings attract a large number of masons from all over the District. The DGL has its Annual Investiture meeting in February every year and its half yearly meeting in the month of August. The DGL meetings normally take place on the second Saturday of these months.

All DGL meetings are hosted by a Private Lodge (referred to as the Banner Lodge since the DGL meet takes place under the banner of this Lodge) which makes all arrangements for the meeting with the help of the DGL office. The district has 18 lodges and once in 9 years a Private Lodge will host the DGL meeting.

During the Annual Investiture Meeting the DGM appoints / reappoints / promotes the officers of the DGL and invests them.

The DGL meeting is always followed by the DGL banquet.

Peculiar to the District Grand Lodge of Madras is the meetings of "Bar Dive Old and Mild No:1" where Bar Dive members meet and make merry. The Bar Dive takes place the day previous to the DGL meeting. Entry to the Bar Dive is restricted to members of the dive. To be eligible to become a member of the Bar Dive one must have been a Master Mason for 3 years and the candidature must be approved by the RW DGM. The entire collection of the meeting is given to charity.
