Offices are positions of official responsibility within the Temple. Officers dutifully serve the Temple to ensure its smooth running. Offices require an Oath of Office.
Councillor The Councillors act as the general management as well as the Supreme Court to act and decide upon appeals. The Council is meant to provide a sense of direction without inhibiting the latitude that each Master, Knight and member deserves.
Council Secretary The Council Secretary is responsible for the day-to-day communications and record-keeping of the Council, manages and certifies Council votes, and serves as organizational and logistical support to the department heads as needed. Because the Temple is incorporated as a non-profit, the Council Secretary also serves as the corporate secretary required under Texas law.
