The Clan Graham Society Council

The governing body of the Clan Graham Society is the Council, which is composed of the elected officers, appointed officers, trustees, members-at-large and regional commissioners. Terms of office (years) are given below in parentheses for elected officers only.

North American Chieftain

A Clan Graham chieftainship is granted by the Chief of The Grahams, the Duke of Montrose, at his discretion. If the Clan Graham Society wishes to suggest a candidate for the Chief’s consideration, the candidate shall be nominated by the Council of the Society and the nomination shall be sustained by a two-thirds vote of the membership at an Annual General Meeting.

Our current North American Chieftain is Richard Graham who was first appointed by James Angus Graham, His Grace, the 7th Duke of Montrose (1907-1992), in 1989, and then re-appointed by James Graham, His Grace, the 8th Duke of Montrose. Richard succeeds the late Harry L. Graham, who was the Society's first chieftain and president in North America.
