GUIDELINES FOR THE MEMBERS OF THE VALLEY OF COLUMBUS

General Guidelines: Points for the Award are accumulated on a continuing basis with a cutoff date of December 31st each year for the level of recognition to be presented at the following annual Double Eagle Awards Nights, the regular monthly Consistory Meeting held in January or February. Because points required for Neck Ribbon advancements usually take longer than a year, these are awarded in a timely fashion throughout the year.

It is the responsibility of each participant to sign attendance sheets by printing in a legible manner your name for each qualified event, at the time the event takes place. Names must legible for points to be issued.   Degree Masters, Reunion Staff, and Committee Chairmen submit the names of participants for activities under their charge to the Awards Chairman.

Organization leaders are responsible for reporting attendance at their respective meetings and special events to the secretary. This includes Community based Clubs, Knight Commander Court of Honor (KCCH), Past Masters Units, and Scottish Rite Guard.   The Chairman of the Double Eagle program will track points and post totals on the bulletin board each month as he receives reports from group and committee leaders.
