Online Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity
We have upgraded to a new, cleaner platform to host our online events and Exemplifications of Charity, Unity and Fraternity. Therefore, invitations that led to the On24 platform are now obsolete. To invite a candidate to a ceremony, please use the NEW invitations available in English, Spanish and French. The invitation, registration, and reporting processes remain the same.

NOTE: Councils must file a form 100 for all candidates who complete an online exemplification. For clarification on the difference between the On-Demand Ceremony and Online Membership (Online Join), click here.
