While the attestation of two sponsors of the requisite degree in good standing is normally considered sufficient to establish the good report of a candidate, the Executive may rule, on a case-by-case basis, that a candidate’s good report has not been established by the attestation of the sponsors. In such a case, the Executive may either reject the application or return it to the local body for reconsideration, with or without a time delay. In addition, the Executive may, at its own discretion, disqualify one or more of the original sponsors from serving again as the sponsor for the same candidate.

Registration is now open for the O.T.O. Women’s Symposium 2016, to be held August 5-7 in Minneapolis. The theme of the conference is “Ladies of Force and Fire”. This conference proposes to examine how women’s issues present in the larger community—such as sexism, mainstream media, the “glass ceiling”, social inequality, and violence against women—play out in the smaller communities encompassed by OTO bodies. Initiate members of all genders are welcome to attend.
