The grand knight is responsible for the overall welfare of the council. Elected annually by the council membership, the grand knight must provide thoughtful and inspired leadership to the council officers, the Service Program directors, chairmen and members of the council.
The deputy grand knight is the second in command in the local council. He is also elected annually, assisted the grand knight in the operation of council affairs and is responsible for any duties assigned to him by the grand knight.
The chancellor is elected annually to serve the council in a variety of ways. Primarily, he assists the grand knight and deputy grand knight in the execution of their duties and takes charge of the council during the incapacity or extended absence of both. With the cooperation and support of the grand knight, the chancellor has the important duty of strengthening the members' interest in council activities.
The recorder is responsible for keeping a true record of all the actions of the council and maintains all correspondence of the council.
The financial secretary's important role is underscored by the fact that he is not elected by the membership but, his appointment -- upon the recommendation of the grand knight and trustees -- is approved by the supreme knight for a period of three years. The financial secretary's duties revolve around two key areas of council activities: financial records and membership records.
The treasurer is the elected official in charge of handling all council funds. He receives money from the financial secretary and issues a receipt for such. He is also responsible for depositing all money in the proper council accounts and providing a voucher or certificate of deposit to the grand knight for each transaction.
The lecturer is appointed by the grand knight to provide suitable educational and entertaining programs under the "Good of the Order" section of the council meeting. The "Good of the Order" may include such items as speakers, presentations on special topics, etc.
The advocate is the parliamentarian for the council. He need not be a member of the legal profession; however, he should be thoroughly familiar with all of the laws of the Order as stated in the "Charter, Constitution and Laws" and with the council by-laws. When a by-law is to be revised, the advocate serves as chairman of the revision committee.
The warden is responsible for supervising and maintaining all council property, except that which belongs to the financial secretary. He sets ups the council chambers for meetings and degrees and appoints and supervises guards for ceremonial exemplifications.
The inside guard attends the doors of the council chamber, checking on current membership cards before allowing entrance.
