Chief Executive Officer
When DeMolay International expanded beyond the borders of the United States of America, the governing body of DeMolay was renamed to "The International Supreme Council" (ISC). For everything that DeMolay wants to change or add, it must be approved by the ISC.
But where does the CEO come in?
DeMolay is organized into Jurisdictions, which may be either entire states or parts of states, provinces, territories or countries. Each Jurisdiction has its own CEO. The CEO is the Jurisdictions official representative to ISC.
So what does he do?
The Executive Officer runs his Jurisdiction, which includes duties like the establishment of new "Chapters," the appointment of DeMolay adult advisors, state DeMolay functions, and anything that is covered by the ISC by-laws.
CHIEF Executive Officer in a nutshell
"Dad" Bill Gordon is the Executive Officer for the entire state/jurisdiction of Arizona. He ensures that all things DeMolay run smoothly in Arizona and is the appointed representative for Arizona at the International Supreme Council.
