GUIDELINES FOR FILING LETTER OF INTENT
It is recommended that all members seeking an elective office in the Grand Chapter submit a Letter of Intent. It must be one page only, one side only or it will not be accepted. Please check the Blue Book first for eligibility requirements and for the duties pertaining to the office or position you are seeking. If possible, consider speaking to someone who has in the past or presently holds a like position. There may be added duties that are not covered in the Blue Book. You should be certain that the required time commitment does not exceed your available time. You should also consider if any specific skills are required for the office or position.
The office of Grand Secretary not only requires experience with office equipment, but you must also be computer literate.
The office of Grand Treasurer requires that you be computer literate and have a general knowledge of finances.
All the elective offices or positions in our Grand Chapter are important to our Order. To be an effective officer or member, you need to possess the proper skills and be willing to devote whatever amount of time and effort it takes to get the job done.
Those who submit Letters of Intent are recognized as serious candidates by the voting delegates.
Remember always! You are running for the office or position, not against any specific Sister or Brother. If you are not successful, be gracious, congratulate the winner, then submit your Letter of Intent the following year and try again. If you are unsuccessful and seek a different office or position during Grand Chapter, be certain you qualify and have the available time. The duties and requirements may vary for each office or position.
