History of Firecrafter Chiefs



The position of Chief is the top leadership position held by a member in the organization.  The Chief oversees all operations of the Firecrafter Organization. The position of Chief is held by a youth member who does not exceed the age of 21. The Chief is elected by the youth membership. Today the Chief is elected at the Grand Ritual and begins his term January 1. Chief terms went by calendar year until 1988 when they changed to an August to August term. In 2009, the term went back to the calendar year. Although the new Chief is elected still at the Grand Ritual, he does not begin his term until January 1.
