Worthy State, District, and Council Leaders,
The Supreme Council continues to host online exemplification ceremonies while social distancing rules are in effect. I ask that you promote them heavily within your councils and jurisdictions.
A candidate or observer can choose a ceremony that best fits his schedule. If a first choice is closed out due to capacity limitations, he should pick another time slot that still has openings.
The procedure to follow is very simple.
Provide each candidate with your council number and instruct them to register for the exemplification of their choice by clicking on the associated link within the PDF. Tell them that their families are welcome, and encouraged, to observe. For your benefit, the ceremony schedule is as follows:
Follow up with the candidates to guide them through the registration as needed.
Candidates should log in no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the exemplification.
After the ceremony, process the candidates by submitting form 100s the traditional way or electronically in Officers Online.
Note that candidates for admission must be approved by your council. You may coordinate electronic voting for them using the temporary rules for electronic voting found here - English, French, Spanish.
STATUS REPORT: More than 2000 men joined the Order and more than 7000 advanced to their 2nd and 3rd Degrees during the first online exemplification held April 16, 2000.
