National Society Magna Charta Dames and Barons

Successor Appointment

              Have You Designated Your Successor ?
     Have you informed the Society of the name of the person whom you would like to succeed
to your membership?
     Membership in The National Society Magna Charta Dames and/ or The Somerset Chapter
Magna Charta Barons is hereditary in the families of the primary members. Therefore each Primary
member should appoint to succeed to his or her membership in the Society, ONE of the following:
a daughter, son, granddaughter, grandson, sister, brother, niece, or nephew, or other near blood
relative by the same line of descent.
	Please give this your careful  consideration as it is the policy of the respective Societies to say that except
 	in a very unusual situation requiring special permission from the officers and council to do so, once a
     successor is named, no changes may be made. The membership of the Primary and Successor members may
     run concurrently. The Primary member is reminded herewith that unless the naming of' a Successor is on record
     in writing prior to the death of the Primary Member, no other appointment by the Primary Member can be
     honored. The mere naming of a relative in one's will is not satisfactory as the Primary member may have
     forgotten that a successor was previously named. If it is not convenient to name a Successor at this time, the
     Primary Member may wish to defer this decision, but it is easy to "forget" and to "put it off", so we urge you
     to give this your prompt attention.
