Every Chapter should audit their membership records once a year. This easy guide helps you to do that.
Programs & Presentations
Order of the Overseers
A fun “side degree” that preps candidates, Companions, and even our Brothers can experience and learn some important “pre-lessons” to the Royal Arch’s Mark Master Degree. Download the simple, fun ritual below. You can even order the special “Good Work. True Work. Square Work.” lapel pins by contacting the Grand Secretary or Most Excellent Grand High Priest. Pins are $3 each and all donations go to the Royal Arch Masons Charitable Foundation.

Table Chapter Ritual
Whether your Chapter is holding a traditional Table Chapter meal with (tiled) or without (open) non-Companions, we’ve got the ritual to make your event the best it can be, enjoyed by all. Don’t forget that you can add a speaker (or, even, more than one!).
Chapter of Confusion
How well do your Companions know the Royal Arch? This “pre-meeting” event tests their knowledge of the Chapter room layout and the details of how we open our stated convocations. A great “bring ’em back” event.
Completing the Craft
The Grand Chapter’s new Chapter-to-Lodge presentation, designed to entice non-York Rite member Master Masons and make them curious as to what the York Rite holds for them as they continue their Masonic Journey. Sorry, though, we can’t offer it as a download, but you can request a copy here.
Match the Mark
The first of our “in Chapter” activities, this one challenges every regularly-attending members to determine which mark is which Companions.
The second of our “in Chapter” activities, you’ll divide your Companions into two teams who will then compete using details and facts about our Royal Arch ritual as questions to earn and “X” or “O.”
The third of our “in Chapter” activities, this one gets the Companions talking to each other and then uses the answers to questions about them to use as guides when playing a modified game of bingo.

Official Visitation (O.V.) Report
Here’s all you need to know when you’re visiting one of your Chapters. We know it’s a bit of a long report, but if you work with your Chapter’s High Priests and Secretaries, it actually is pretty easy to complete. Here’s a tip: Send it to your Chapter before you visit them to get their help filling it out.
