Section 5. Effective November 1, 1989, life membership shall be made available only through the Commandery-in-Chief.
- The fee for life membership shall be determined by vote of the Commanderies, each Commandery having one vote.
- Payment received for life membership will be held either in the general operating account of the Commandery-in-Chief, or in a separate “Life Membership Account,” at the discretion of the Commandery-in-Chief.
- Each Commandery will be eligible to receive a per capita distribution for each existing life member, aged eighteen (18) and over, from the Commandery-in-Chief’s general operating account (or Life Membership Account, as the case may be) after receipt of a Commandery’s annual assessment and report. The Budget and Finance Committee will make a recommendation annually to the Commandery-in-Chief on what constitutes a prudent and appropriate amount. The Commandery-in-Chief will then decide what per capita amount is prudent and appropriate to be paid in that year, if any.
- If the life member’s Commandery becomes inactive, the life member must elect to join an existing Commandery. Failing such an election, the Commander-in-Chief shall assign the life member to an active Commandery.
