General Order #19

SERIES 2011-2012

12 July 2012


  1. A report recently released by Executive Director David Demmy indicates that a number of Departments have yet to file Form 35, Department Annual Report, along with the current department roster and applicable per capita dues and/or Form 49, Certification of Election and Installation of Department Officers. As of this date, the Executive Director has not yet received the following:

    Form 35                                                         Form 49
    Connecticut                                                  Colorado & Wyoming
    Maine                                                             Kentucky

  2. Per Chapter II, Article V, Section 3(a) of the Regulations, Form 35, along with the current department roster and per capita dues are due to the Executive Director by 31 May each year. Per the same reference, the completed Form 49 must be received by the Executive Director within 30 days of the election.

  3. As these delinquent Departments have gone well beyond the due dates for submittal of these reports, I am hereby placing the following Departments under suspension:
    (Colorado & Wyoming is not yet delinquent in submitting their Form 49 as their election and installation was held on 23 June, and as such, is not under suspension)

  4. These Departments will be brought back in good standing at such time the delinquent reports are received by the Executive Director. However, while under suspension, Departments may not meet or conduct business. In addition, their delegates to the National Encampment will not be seated. With the National Encampment only one month away, the affected Departments are strongly encouraged to submit the delinquent reports as soon as possible so that their standing with the National organization may be restored.

Ordered this 12th Day of July 2012.
