General Order #3
24 August 2009
The National Council of Administration met in session on August 13th and voted that in order to have a more complete record for the Order it is necessary to have copies of all Department Bylaws on file at the National Headquarters.
Thus, it is ordered that all Department Commanders send a copy of their Department Bylaws to the Executive Director by September 30, 2009. The copy shall be signed by the Department Commander, either the sitting DC when the Bylaws were written or the current DC. Your cooperation is appreciated.
- This will be a one time deal. From this date forward as Bylaws are sent in for approval of changes, the CinC will forward an approved copy to the Department and to the National Headquarters.
- Also approved by the CoA, Department Secretaries are expected to mail the Form 35 to the National Headquarters on or before May 31st each year. They should have in their possession the Form 27 from the Camps before April 30 each year. As of May 2010 Department Secretaries will include copies of the Form 27s from each Camp when filing Form 35 to National. This allows the Executive Director to better prepare reports.
Ordered this 24th Day of August, 2009.
