To hold a "general" supervision over the affairs of the Chapter
To see that the officers are proficient in their work
and to assist the W.M. in the discharge of her duties.

Beyond this it varies greatly.

Our Patrons serve on the examining committee, they are greeters on the doors, they teach proficiency to new members and can act as parliamentarian when needed.
Our A.P. doubles as Flag Bearer.

This is a position that very clearly teaches you the difference between "authority" and "power".

Authority is people doing what you say because you are the boss, power is people doing what you say because you have earned their respect.

As Patron, you will need at times to provide instruction and guidance with TACT and RESERVE, remembering that the Worthy Matron is the one who is actually the head of the Chapter.

You will need to learn more than everyone else there, but not come across as a know-it-all.

You will superintend your emotions, so that you are not caught up but still be engaged to know when to step in.

You will have to be the hand that gently guides without being a bully.

In other words, you will need to be the Best Back Seat Driver that has never been seen!

Biver no longer has a day-to-day role in Hublot, but rather manages Hublot replica watches along with other LVMH watch brands from the top. For instance, it was recently announced that he replica watches would be filling in as the interim CEO of TAG Heuer - another LVMH brand. That isn't a job Jean-Claude probably rolex replica wants right now, as he has been toying with retirement for a while - but he steps up when he is rolex replica sale needed. Hublot has been doing a good job of keeping the fire alive without Jean-Claude, but with Ricardo always out and about, I can't help but wonder who rolex replica keeps the peace back at HQ. I mention the above as a semi-explanation of the fact that Hublot doesn't always have all the replica watches details settled when they announce a new replica watches uk partnership or product. The major question on the table is whether or not there will be a limited replica watches uk production "Mr. Brainwatch Edition" watch.
