Camp Order No. 6

Reflecting General Order #10 from Commander-in-Chief Brad Schall dated January 6, 2011.

Regarding an opinion being rendered about a Camp Commander being able to simultaneously hold the office of
Commander & Treasurer
OR
Commander & Secretary/Treasurer.

Summary Opinion:  
Given that the Camp/Department Commander must approve all expenditures by the Treasurer
(Chapter 1, Article VI Section 1 and Chapter 2, Article 5, Section 4)
it would create a conflict of interest for him to hold both (Commander, Treasurer)
or all three offices (Commander, Secretary-Treasurer).  

Therefore a Commander cannot simultaneously serve as Treasurer or Secretary/Treasurer.

So Ordered this 8th of January, 2011.

The group also donated dozens of quilts to Children's Mercy Hospital for patients.

Those wishing to make contributions, in lieu of flowers, may do so to:
Vitas Hospice of Independence,
4041 S. Lynn Court Drive,
