In 1921, the Fraternity was divided into 3 districts as a result of proposed legislation by George F. David II, the third Grand Polemarch. The three districts grew into four “regions.”  In 1925, the designation of “Region” was changed to “Province” by Fifth Grand Polemarch Earl B. Dickerson, at the 15th Grand Chapter Meeting.  Currently the fraternity is organized into twelve Provinces.
