Since 1958

The South-Central region is composed of five member states (Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, and Oklahoma) and one non-member state (Texas). The Companions of this region have been gathering together annually for well over sixty years.

The Southwestern Conference of Grand Chapter Officers was founded in 1958 by the Grand Chapters of Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Texas, “as a means of exchange of ideas, matters of mutual interest, and problems concerning the several grand jurisdictions.” These four founding Grand Chapters were soon joined by the Grand Chapters of Kansas and Missouri and subsequently by the Grand Councils and Grand Commanderies of the six states to form the South-Central region that we know today.

The 2023 Regional Conference will be held in September 2023 at the Chateau on the Lake, Branson, Missouri
