The Councils are formed by agreements of a group of adjoining Sections and exist under their consent. The Geographic Councils act as a subordinate committee of the Sections who have the right to conduct their own operation. The Geographical Councils carry out activities delegated by the Sections when a better result can be achieved by working together.
