Officer’s Roles and Responsibilities

Grand Knight

The grand knight is responsible for the overall welfare 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.

Deputy Grand Knight

The deputy grand knight is the second in command in the local council. He is also elected annually and assists the grand knight in the operation of council affairs and is responsible for any duties assigned to him by the grand knight.

Chancellor

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.

Recorder

The recorder is responsible for keeping a true record of all council actions and maintains a record of all council correspondence.

Treasurer

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.

Advocate

The advocate is the council parliamentarian. 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.

Warden

The warden is responsible for supervising and maintaining all council property, except that which belongs to the financial secretary.

Inside Guard/ Outside Guard

The Outside guard attends the council chamber doors. The Inside guard checks the current membership card before allowing entrance.

Trustee

The board of trustees consists of three members elected by the council and the grand knight, who serves as chairman of the board. They oversee the work of the financial secretary and treasurer, and with the deputy grand knight serve on the council’s retention committee. During council elections, only the three-year trustee is voted on, with the others moving on to become two and one-year trustees, respectively.
