Brother Camp Commanders,

We have been notified through General Order # 18, SERIES 2017-2018, 6 February 2018 that Pursuant to the continuing effort to secure a group exemption status under 501c3 regulations, an insertion of specific verbiage will be required for all Department and Camp By-Laws.  Please refer to the attached General Order.  Presently the Department of Indiana is working to incorporate those changes into its By-Laws as of this writing.  Discussion of this subject will be covered during the June 2nd Department of Indiana Encampment and further action may be completed.

This notification is to make all Department of Indiana Camps aware of the requirement and for each Camp to be prepared to incorporate those changes by the required dates (refer to the instructions in GO-18 line no. 4.  It is requested that the Camps do not present their By-Law changes to the Department Commander until the Department of Indiana has approved changes to the Department’s By-Laws and the Camps thus be informed.

Again this is for your information to become familiar with GO-18 and the upcoming requirements.

Yours, in Fraternity, Charity & Loyalty,
