Organization and Officers

Organization & Officers - Orients

Each separate jurisdiction under a Supreme Council is called an Orient. In the United States, each State and territory is an Orient.

Orients in the Southern Jurisdiction are headed either by a Deputy of the Supreme Council appointed by the Sovereign Grand Commander, or by a Sovereign Grand Inspector General or SGIG elected by the Supreme Council. Why the difference? Because there are only 33 active members of the Supreme Council and there are more than 33 states and territories in the Southern Jurisdiction.
