The Ronald L. Thomas,
General Grand Council,
On Saturday, February 27, 2016, the Grand Council of Alabama approved the request of the General Grand Council to assume the responsibility of administering a Ritualist Award for the Royal Master, Select Master, and Super Excellent Master Degrees. This award will be given for work from February 27, 2016, forward. The requirements can be found here: Requirements. The best way to track accomplishments is to keep a diary of sorts that can be verified by the Illustrious Master and Recorder of the Council where the work is performed. When the requirements are met, the final verification is accomplished by the Grand Recorder, NOMINATION FORM, and then sent to the General Grand Recorder for the issuance of the Jewel.
