Biographical / Historical

The mission of the District Council is to promote the unity of the District and to assist the Brother Visitor in the exercise of his duties. Together they make plans for the progress of the District, and they study how to face the problems that arise. Each year, the Brother Visitor undertakes, with his Council, a fraternal evaluation of his own work and the state of the District. The titular Brother Visitor is, by right, the President of the District Council. Auxiliary Visitors are members by right.

The District Chapter determines the number of the District Councillors as well as the length of their period in office. The minimum number of Councillors is six; at least two-thirds are elected; the Visitor can appoint one or more Councillors of his choice.
