Supreme Assembly is theinternational governing bodyof the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls. It is headquartered in the Supreme Temple in McAlester, Oklahoma, where the order was founded by the Reverend W. Mark Sexson in 1922.
There are 50 seats in the House of Gold. These seats are held by the Supreme Officers and the Supreme Inspectors of the various jurisdictions. Membership is limited to 50, and is by election of a 2/3 majority vote as vacancies occur.
Supreme Assembly makes all decisions with regard to ritual, statutes, and the by-laws which govern all of Rainbow. They are also responsible for governing all the Rainbow assemblies throughout the world. Supreme Inspectors and Supreme Deputies represent the Supreme Assembly, and they have absolute authority to govern their states and jurisdictions as they see fit. It is the basic responsibility of the Supreme Inspectors and Deputies to strengthen the unity of Rainbow in their jurisdictions, to promote its growth and prosperity, and to ensure that all directives of the Supreme Assembly are followed.
The Supreme Assembly meets every two years, at various locations throughout our Rainbow realm. The sessions are held
in the jurisdictions on a rotating basis, depending on which jurisdictions submit a proposal to the Supreme Executive Committee to be the hostesses for the sessions. At this time, all members of the Supreme Assembly meet to discuss the operation of Rainbow in all areas of the world, and to vote to make changes that are deemed necessary. These meetings are held in private, and the outcome of these meetings is reported to the general membership by the Supreme Inspector or Deputy of each of the jurisdictions. At the Supreme sessions, the Grand Worthy Advisors of the various jurisdictions are selected to act as the Supreme Floor Officers and Supreme Pages. They preside over the general sessions and present all of the ritual work. Any member of Rainbow is eligible to attend the biennial Supreme sessions .
