Craft members must always out-number redemptive members by two to one in The Court of Assistants.  There can be as many as ten Assistants, no more than five of whom are permanent officers who are also Liverymen, the remainder hold office for one year and are elected in June from the membership by all members. After their year at court they will revert to ordinary members. Court Assistants can be re-elected. All assistants are expected to attend all four Common halls.
