General Order #10

Series 2007 – 2008

21 January 2008

Brothers,

  1. With the formation of two Departments, there have been substantial questions over the standing of a Past Camp Commander concerning their right to voting credentials at a Department Encampment. In order to clarify this I am hereby publishing this General Order;

  2. Past Camp Commanders in good standing are only entitled to credentials from the Camp that they Commanded.

  3. Should a Past Camp Commander allow his dues to go into arrears and is no longer in good standing with the Camp that he had commanded, his voting status as a Past Camp Commander is forfeited.

  4. If a Past Camp Commander should transfer to a new Camp, their voting status as a Past Camp Commander is forfeited.

  5. If the Camp that a Past Camp Commander is a member of ceases to exists, their Past Camp Commander voting status is forfeited.

  6. If the Past Camp Commander remains a member in good standing of the Camp that he Commanded and joins another Camp as a dual Member he still holds voting rights as a Past Camp Commander in the Camp that he commanded but doesn’t have the voting rights as a Past Camp Commander in the Camp he has just joined.

  7. Should a Past Camp Commander transfer from the Camp that he had commanded, then at a latter date rejoins the Camp he had commanded, he must request and be approved for the restoration of rank prior to him being issued a credentials card as being a Past Camp Commander. A credentials card can not be issued to him as a Past Camp Commander until his rank has been restored.

  8. Past Camp Commanders that desire to have a credential card to the Department Encampment and for what ever reason no longer qualify for voting credentials as a Past Camp Commander may apply for the restoration of rank through the process described in the Constitution and Regulations. A credentials card for a Department Encampment as a Past Camp Commander can not be issued to him until the restoration of rank is approved.

So ordered this 20th day of January, 2008;

 
Charles E. Kuhn, Jr.
Commander in Chief
National Order, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War

 

Attest:

Donald Palmer
Secretary
