1. I have been asked to make a ruling on several matters by the Department of Ohio.

2. The honor of Past Department Commander is bestowed upon a brother upon the successful completion of a term as Department Commander .

3. A Past Department Commander is entitled to credentials to a National Encampment, to be granted by the Department so bestowing the honor, so long as that brother is in good standing.

5. A Past Department Commander is not eligible for the office of delegate or alternate delegate to the National Encampment, even if said brother is a dual member of Camps in more than one Department.

6. All delegates and alternate delegates to a National Encampment must be elected to such office at their respective Department Encampment. If a brother is not so duly elected, the Department Secretary shall not issue a delegate card nor an alternate delegate card to such brother.
