The National Constitution was first adopted in 1922.
The current revision of the National Constitution was ratified in 1990 by the Grand Chapter as a replacement to the previous Governing Documents in force, the National Bylaws and the National Constitution. Although it was common practice for organized societies to maintain bylaws separate from a constitution, in more recent decades, the practice has been one of consolidation to avoid unnecessary repetition and potential conflict.
Creation of a New National Council
This revision included changes to the National Council, creating and defining the National Offices we know today. For more information about these changes, see the main article National Council.
