Proof of membership has long been a requirement for sitting royalty,
and a lapse in membership during a reign automatically resulted in
In order to bring officer requirements into line, the addition to
Corpora of items I.D.2.a and I.D.2.b has been proposed:
D. Membership Requirements
Participants should expect to show proof of membership in order to
qualify for member privileges. The level of proof required should be
commensurate with the long-term risk to the Society posed by an
erroneous claim to membership.
Officers at all levels of the Society must be Society members as
defined in the Glossary and must have immediate access to the
corporate newsletter for their area received at their residence.
(Alternate access arrangements may be made for members of affiliated
organizations or on a case-by-case basis for people with post office
boxes and for International Members.) This standard also applies to
deputies designated as successors to officers subject to this
provision, or assigned independent administrative duties.
Deputies who only assist with specific tasks are exempt from the
newsletter access requirement.
a. The warrants and/or appointments of officers found to be without a
valid membership shall be considered terminated as of the date of the
b. Warrants terminated due to a lapse in membership may or may not be
reinstated upon demonstration of a valid membership at the pleasure
of the warranting authority and within the confines of the governing
documents and kingdom law.
The Board requests comments from the membership regarding this
proposed revision no later than May 1, 2007. Please send them to:
