About the Degree of Royal Purple
GENERAL INFORMATION: “The Royal Purple Degree is a recognition of a person’s dedication to Job’s Daughters, not a recognition of achievements of one’s self.” The Degree honors Majority Members “who have been especially generous in dedicating their time and efforts to promoting their Bethels and the International Order of Job’s Daughters.” (Taken from the Royal Purple Degree Ceremony.)
1. The Daughter must be a Majority member at least twenty-three (23) years of age at the time of her nomination by the Bethel Guardian Council or a member of the Executive Grand Guardian Council.
2. The Daughter must be nominated for the Degree by the Executive members of the Bethel Guardian Council or a member of the Executive Grand Guardian Council without her knowledge. The Daughters of her Bethel may recommend her nomination to the Executive members of the Bethel Guardian Council (See attached form—ROYAL PURPLE DEGREE NOMINATION). A fee amounting to the current cost of the medallion must be forwarded with the application. If the award is denied, the fee shall be returned. Contact the Grand Secretary for the current cost of the medallion.
3. The Executive members of the Bethel Guardian Council must secure four (4) written recommendations from responsible adults other than relatives to be written on the form. At least two (2) of the recommendations must be from someone officially connected with Job’s Daughters. Responses to items on nomination forms MUST BE typewritten or printed.
