Duties
Advocate:

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 advocate should also have a working knowledge of "Robert's Rules of
Order," and the Supreme Council flyer, "Methods of Conducting a Council
Meeting" (#1937). An understanding of both of these will help keep meetings
on track.

When needed, the advocate shall seek legal assistance from the state
advocate. In matters of trail of council members, the advocate shall
prosecute the charges on behalf of the council.
Please keep our nation's veterans in your prayers, many from our own Council, who have served and continue to serve.
