    Can be given in any order?

    In here, I°-IV° has to be 6 months apart from each one, except from a dispensation. No papers are needed.
    V° you need to be in the society for 4 years and IV° for 1 year, and also it’s the prerogative of the Chief Adept to give that Grade out. VI° and VII° are also prerogative of the Chief Adept (equivalent to a ProvGM), normally require one year of the previous grade.
    VII° entitles to be the Celebrant of the College (like WM in the Craft Lodge)
    VIII°, 8° and 9° are prerogative of the Supreme Magus (equivalent to GM)
    I°-IV° are considered similar to Craft Lodge EA-MM
    V°-VII° are similar to Provincial Grand Ranks
    VIII°-IX° are like Grand Ranks

    Yes any order. I was supposed to get my IV first but had a family thing come up last minute. I paid my dues and initial fees but never actually received any grades before I had to move. Hopefully this next year NM can work something out with IA to do courtesy work

    From my understanding yes. But you have to get all 4 before moving up. They had a I* scheduled and there were a couple guys that had their II & III already

    cannot agree with this if we have similar ritual...
    but hey, who am I to judge another jurisdiction.

    I-IV in SRIA are so progressive in its teaching.

    Well Friday night, the Suffragan of my College and I visited Utah College where they conferred the I° and II°. It was a pleasure to meet the Fratres including "n8blanchard". It was a pleasure to visit and I look forward to visiting again in the future.

    It was a very quick trip. Jeremy and I got in at 4pm on Friday and were back on the road 10am on Saturday. I had a family party to go to back in Boise so I had to race back home, otherwise I would have contacted you.

    It was an absolute delight to meet you and Jeremy! I apologize I did not get more time to speak with you as I rushed in. I was tending to some emergency Cross surgery which kept my full attention. I hope you enjoyed the Temple tour. The SLC Temple, in my opinion, is an absolute gem of architecture.
    I'm still looking to plan a trip up your way in 2018.

    Another Idaho Frater and I were discussing the other day what we would like to see our officers wear. So a question to the Fratres here, stoles or robes for officers?

    I am leaning towards stoles as they are easier to maintain and we would not have to worry about if stoles would fit like we would with robes.

    What are your (pl) thoughts?

    Well, it was a good weekend. Myself with three others were advanced into the Second Order and brought in 3 more Fratres into Wyoming into the First Order. Idaho now has enough Fratres to start the formation of an Idaho College.

    Utah College had a great Annual Convalcade last night.
    I was surprised and honored to be elected as Fourth Ancient for the coming year.

    I wanted to come visit again, but work took me to Minnesota. Congrats Frater! Well deserved.

    Well, today was the inaugural Rocky Mountain SRICF Conference in Salt Lake City. Frater Jason Mitchell, IX°, Chief Adept of Utah College, did a great job and I look forward to more of these regional conferences.

    Well, last week was the 151st Annual Communication of the Grand Lodge AF&AM of Idaho. Of the 14 resolutions brought before the voting members, the most notable resolution that passed was the one that gave recognition of the Societas Rosicruciana in Civitatibus Foederatis. Now, the Fratres can move forward to establishing an SRICF College in Idaho. I'm excited.
