DEPARTMENT ORDER # 3, 2020-2021

1. Given the current Covid virus pandemic, It has been difficult for camps to meet in an in-person setting at their usual meeting places. The virus has surged again in several areas and the pandemic will likely continue until an effective vaccine has been developed.

2. For the protection of our Brothers in the Department of Tennessee, electronic meetings using media such as Zoom are authorized so long as the pandemic continues. This is in line with the National Organization’s policy.

3. This General Order does not prohibit in-person camp meetings. It is meant to give camps an option to use electronic means during the course of the pandemic and will remain in effect until rescinded by General order.
Ordered this 25th Day of October 2020.

DEPARTMENT ORDER # 7, 2019-2020

These are extraordinary times. No one could have seen or predicted the events that have occurred in the first six months of this year. This has had an impact on each of us and on our order As every Brother in the Department should be aware, we have had to postpone our Department Encampment several times, and we are now to a point that we are running out of time.

Therefore, our 25th Department Encampment will be held as a virtual meeting on 25 June 2020, 6:30 p.m. CST. This will allow us to manage the business of the Department. Unfortunately, this will be a less personal meeting and, in many ways, will be limited from our normal scope.

     1. We will suspend using most of the ritual and ceremony that we would use in a live event.

     2. The following are the known matters of business that will be addressed.
          a. Approval of Minutes from the 24th Encampment
          b. Financial Report of the Department
          c. Resolution to release the three (3) Camps located in Alabama to become their own Department (details included in DEPARTMENT ORDER # 4, 2019-2020 (3))
          d. Proposed amendments to our By-Laws (details included in DEPARTMENT ORDER # 4, 2019-2020 (4), and “Department Encampment – Proposed Changes to the By-Laws”
          e. Election of Officers
          f. Installation of Officers
     
     3. Reports from the Camps and Staff Officers are to be provided in writing. These will be compiled and posted to the Department website by 21 June 2020. I order that the reports be sent to the Department Secretary no later than 19 June 2020. These will not be presented at the Encampment, unless required by stated business, but will be included in the Department minutes for the Encampment. I further order that a link to the reports be posted to the Department Facebook page, as well as sent to all Brothers of the Department with known email addresses.

     4. I order that all Camps provide to the Department Secretary a list of delegates for your Camp no later than 15 June 2020.

The foregoing Department Order is proclaimed this 8th Day of June in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Twenty, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred forty-third, in the town of Greenbrier, State of Tennessee
