The present name is, Supreme Grand Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star of the United States of America and Canada.  It was incorporated in perpetuity in Washington, D.C. on July 18, 1929.  It could also be stated “On July 18, 1929, the Supreme Grand Chapter was incorporated in perpetuity

 

The Supreme Grand Chapter Order of the Eastern Star (OES) is composed of Grand Chapters and local chapters in states and territories where no Grand Chapter has been organized or in places where the Grand Chapter ceases its affiliation. In 1946, amendments were made to the constitution with the signatures of the authorized acting members of the Board of Directors, James Alja McDonald, Chairman, Timothy Butler, Odesia Williams, Mason Collins and Sallie Mae Dickey. The amended constitution was notarized on March 30, 1946 in Harris County Texas. (No. 31087)The change was to ensure that the Corporation remain permanent and perpetual and shall not be changed or amended. In between meetings the Board of Directors is responsible for the day to day operation of the business affairs of the Supreme Grand Chapter under its laws and regulations. The former Supreme Grand Matrons are: SGME Ula Yeargin, CA, the late Ora White, CA, and the late Lillian Huffman NY.
