ORDER OF THE ISOSCELES
Was conceived by the Trustees in 1989 to generate income by the enrollment fee, which goes directly to the Foundation, thus helping the PCEA fulfill its obligation to future generations. Membership in the Order of the Isosceles is accompanied by a one-time $500 assessment, which is tax deductible. Individuals may enroll themselves, companies may give someone a membership as a tribute to hard work and dedication. Chapters can enroll persons they wish to recognize for service, and families can present an enrollment to a member as a special gift. Fellows in the Order of the Isosceles are bearers of opportunity for future construction leaders - they do not have to be a member of the PCEA.
