SPECIAL NOTE ON CREDENTIALS FOR THIS YEAR:

Voting delegates from Nevada, Grand Officers, Past Grand Officers, the Three Principal Officers in each constituent Body, and Past High Priest, Past Illustrious Masters and Past Commanders of each Constituent Body have one vote in each body. This one vote per person change in Chapter and Council was enacted at last year’s Grand Sessions. It is important that on the registration form you indicate which vote you claim in each body, this will speed up signing for credentials at the registration desk.

Any Companion or Sir Knight is welcome to attend Grand Sessions, voting delegate or non-voting delegate. However, only voting delegates are required to pay the registration fee to obtain credentials. Non-voting delegates can sign up to attend to Awards Banquet or Fellowship Dinner.

As restrictions due to COVID has been lifted, it is our hope that more Companions and Sir Knights can attend this year’s Sessions. We look forward to greeting you in June.
