IMPORTANT

Please read through our reopening plan

NOTE: If you have not registered for Assembly, please do not show up. You will be asked to leave. This applies to members and candidates.

We are doing our utmost to accommodate new member inductions through the Ordeal process during the Covid pandemic. Owing to safety concerns, we are required to limit the number of participants at these events. Depending on the success of each event, we plan on holding more Ordeal opportunities than our customary events in May, July and October.
