The Brotherhood is fortunate to have an active group of Staff and Community Leaders who help to maintain and further our mission. Many of our leaders are the children or grandchildren of the original founders of the Brotherhood, making it all the more special that they remain active and involved in the society's efforts. Coupled with the support of our Executive Committee, Central Council, and various other committee members, these individuals dedicate their time and effort to sustain the Brotherhood and ensure its continuity for generations to come. If you are interested in becoming more active or getting involved with Brotherhood leadership, reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will welcome your support!
