1. In as much as the Constitution in Article V states "eligibles from states where no Department exists may become members-at-large attached to the National Headquarters" and we have been violating this provision of the Constitution for a number of years, the National Membership-at-large Coordinator is hereby ordered to transfer all National Members-at -large who reside with areas served by a Department to the respective Department. Departments are to male provisions for these members either by establishing a Department Member-at-large or attaching them to the nearest camp.
2. The transfers are to take place without disruption of membership for the Members-at-large. This is to be accomplished in a manner which will not cause the Member-at-large to resign their membership and should have no negative impact upon the members. The net effect should be only a change in the address to whom dues is mailed by the members and an enhanced opportuninty to participate in the Order.
3. Only the following states are not served by a Department: Alaska, Hawaii, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota, New Mexico, Arizona, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina.
By Order of
Richard D. Orr
