The OES Study Guides were developed to guide chapter officers in gaining knowledge of Grand Chapter Bylaws and general Eastern Star procedures. It is strongly recommended that line officers in subordinate chapters use the guides to prepare for their year as a presiding officer.
Members are encouraged to use the guides to find the answers on their own, and then check their work against the respective Answer Sheets. Answers are based on the latest amendments to Grand Chapter Bylaws and the Book of Instructions, as well as information in the OES Ritual of the General Grand Chapter published in 2009.
Topics covered in the Study Guides are as follows:
OES Study Guide I (Study Guide)
- Duties of Officers
- Vacancies in Office
OES Study Guide II (Study Guide)
- Duties of a Chapter
- Dual Membership
- Fees and Dues
OES Study Guide III (Study Guide)
