What is the Grand Guardian Council?
The Grand Guardian Council is under the Supreme Jurisdiction and organized in the state of Nebraska. It is a group that handles all the matters pertaining to Bethels and Bethel Guardian Councils.
There are 10 elected officers of the GGC: The Grand Guardian, Assiciate Grand Guardian, Vice Grand Guardian, Vice Associate Grand Guardian, Grand Guide, Grand Inner Guard, Grand Marshal, Grand Outer Guard, Grand Secretary, and Grand Treasurer. The Grand Secretary and Grand Treasurer can serve a term up to 10 years. The other offices only serve 1 year terms and move from station to station up to Grand Guardian or Associate Grand Guardian. Each officer has a set list of duties assigned to them for the current year and is required to attend the annual meetings at Grand Session.
Local Bethel Guardian Councils consist of a similar structure to that of the Grand Guardian Council, in which they must consist of a Bethel Guardian, an Associate Bethel Guardian, and a Council of elected adults who are selected for offices from within the council.
