The ArchDruid Union
of the FOI Union Triad
The ArchDruid Union was created on October 9, 2009 by FOI Co-Founder Rt. Rev. Olivia Robertson. The announcement first appeared in Isian News, Issue No. 134, Samhain 2009. The ArchDruid Union joins the ArchPriesthood Union and Grand Commander Union to form the FOI Foundation Union Triad.
As the Goddess Isis inspired the ArchPriesthood Union, so the Goddess Dana and the Goddess Tara have inspired the foundation of the ArchDruid Union of the Druid Clan of Dana and the Grand Commander Union of the Noble Order of Tara. This triad brings into harmony the Priesthood, the Mysteries and Philosophy, and Environmental Activity. The inspired guidance came through Rt. Rev. Olivia Robertson at Isis Oasis, USA. The three Unions form a triad of equal importance, they are on the same level, share the same format and same scope of work. All three Foundation Unions are protected by the Wings of Isis, inspired by the Holy Grael of Dana and strengthened by the Sacred Mounds of Tara.
Members of the ArchDruid Union
The ArchDruid Union has 33 places. The ArchDruid Union members join the ArchPriesthood Union and Grand Commander Union as custodians of the legacy of the Fellowship of Isis. There can be no more than 31 members worldwide: the 1st position, that of Initiation is occupied by the late FOI Co-Founder Olivia Robertson; the 33rd position, that of Mystical Awakening, is occupied by the late FOI co-founder Lawrence Durdin-Robertson. This corresponds to the 32 physical rituals of Initiation and 1 of attainment of Divine Awareness without ritual on the Cosmic Web of the Universe which came to Olivia through divine inspiration. As Druids were both mystical and learned, with their own colleges, so the ArchDruid Union will pay particular attention to the College of Isis along with their other duties as custodians of the legacy of the Fellowship of Isis. The work of the ArchDruid Union is global in scope.

Methods of Appointment and Operation
According to FOI co-founder Olivia Robertson the distribution of the ArchDruid Union was based in part on density of FOI communities in a particular geographical area - including number of active FOI centers and FOI related events, and/or work related activity for the FOI throughout the year.
New appointments to fill vacancies as they arise will be handled exactly the same way in the ArchDruid Union as in the ArchPriesthood Union, through geographical choice; in Europe, Japan, Africa, country by country. New appointments in the USA are state by state, according to the territory of the original appointment.
The Global Network of the Fellowship of Isis ArchDruid Union operates by Consensus of Members when creating policies or upholding the legacy of the Fellowship of Isis. This method of operation and appointment to fill any vacancies that may arise has been previously created by Rt. Rev. Olivia Robertson, FOI Co-Founder, for the ArchPriesthood. All FOI Foundation Triad Unions will operate in the same manner.
