The General Grand Chapter (GGC) of the United States of America was organised by a Convention of Delegates of Independent Grand Chapters in November 1876. The GGC currently has jurisdiction over the Continental U.S.A. (46 states); Canada (8 Provinces); and various Grand Chapters in South America, Germany, Guam, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Philippines, Romania and Taiwan.

In the early 1900’s, the Supreme Grand Chapter of Scotland was formed, with authority to control and expand the Order in the British Empire. Today, it has jurisdiction over Chapters in Scotland, England, Northern Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand.
