Each Holy Royal Arch Chapter has an Inspector of Workings appointed to assist them in their ceremonial endeavours. The Inspector is usually a Past Grand Officer with some experience on how a Royal Arch Chapter should properly perform its ceremonies and conduct its Festive Board.
Inspectors of Workings are expected to attend at least two meetings of their allocated HRA Chapter and to submit a report on the Chapter’s performance to the Grand Inspector of Workings via the Grand Scribe Ezra. This enables the Grand Inspector of Workings to marshall any assistance necessary for Chapters which may be struggling with any aspects of their work.
Newly appointed Inspectors of Workings are presented with a Certificate at the first Grand Chapter Quarterly Convocation following their initial appointment. This is to emphasise the importance placed on their role by the Most Eminent First Grand Principal.
