Long answer: After attaining the Master Mason I waited 2-years before joining the York Rite as I worked on my proficiency ticket in Lodge. When I did join I didn't take an officer position in the Commandery as I was Master of my Lodge that year. It wasn't until after September when the Commander at the time was expelled and in the vacuum the officers moved up and I jumped into the line at the request of the acting-Commander. From there I moved up the lines of elected officers until I was finally elected last November to serve as Commander.
At the end of this year the members can vote me in again or elect someone else. I have no control over that. After this year is done I do not foresee myself presiding for the next several years.
