National Level

  A Priory is automatically formed upon membership of at least five active Knights or Dames of the Order residing within the Country.  As membership grows in any one country, the initial Priory may be divided as geographically suited.  For those countries with less than five Knights or Dames of the Order, they are automatically a member of the "At-Large" Priory until such time as their country has a Priory of its own.

Commanderies:  Each State within the United States or equivalent outside of the United States will automatically form a Commandery subordinate to its respective Priory if at least five active Knights and Dames of the Order reside within the location.

Keeps:  Any additional locality where at least five active Knights and Dames of the Order reside, a Keep subordinate to its local Commandery may be formed.
