  1. A Camp Officer Installation Report, submitted to our National Executive Director, indicates that someone from outside our Order was elected and installed as an officer of a Camp of the SUVCW.

  2. This is contrary to the nature of our organization as well as its Ritual and Ceremonials.

  3. Therefore, it is the ruling of this C-in-C that to hold office in our Order, whether it be as an elected officer or as an appointed officer or appointed committee member, the position MUST be filled by a person from within the membership of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War (that person being a Brother in good standing, as either a "Member" or an "Associate" within the SUVCW).

Ordered this 2nd day of August, 2004.

By Order of:
Kent L. Armstrong

Edward Krieser, PCinC
National Secretary
