The Grand Executive Committee held a productive meeting during this past Grand Assembly. We discussed many important topics in the spirit of advancing our Order.
A decision was made to revise the requirements for eligibility to run for an Elected Grand Office. This change is two-fold:
1. Districts can refer more than one candidate to run for an elected grand office, just not for the same office. Previously, a district could only submit 1 girl to run for 1 of the offices.
2. GWAA and GWA can be from the same district in consecutive years. Previously, 1 year needed to pass between girls from the same district for these offices.
Should a district happen to now have more than one girl hoping to run for the same elected Grand Office during the same year, then it should be made known to the recommending Advisory Board that she inquired 1st. It is ultimately up to the Board's discussion and resulting decision as to which girl is nominated to interview.
The rules document has been updated accordingly and is available under Grand Deputy Resources.
