Series 2001 - 2002
George L. Powell, Commander-in-Chief
6114 Gillespie St.
Philadelphia, PA 19135-3611
It has come to the attention of the Commander-in-Chief that at least one camp is attempting to create its own Life Membership program. Based upon the following opinion of the National Counselor it is my ruling as
Commander-in-Chief that this cannot be done. Any money collected for this purpose is to be immediately refunded and all such activity is to cease.
Camps may not establish a life membership program. Per our Congressional
Charter, this may only be done by the National Organization. Any such effort
to create any type of life member program at the Camp or Department level is
By Order of:
George L. Powell
Edward Krieser, PCinC
