CBCS Members Will Retain Membership in KYCH if Grand Encampment Expels Them
KYCH issues order enabling Sir Knights expelled from the Grand Encampment over membership in the Great Priory of America, CBCS, to maintain their membership in KYCH anyway.
Despite the requirement for membership in the Grand Encampment as a prerequisite for membership in KYCH, the Convent General has issued an order stating that such requirement is suspended where a Templar loses his membership in the Grand Encampment without cause.
Thus, at least temporarily, membership in KYCH will be unaffected by membership in the Grand Encampment, unless a Sir Knight is expelled for cause other than any membership in the Great Priory of America.
Please see letter from the Grand Master General below.
