The International Commission on Nobility and Royalty
Officers of the Commission
Books and DVDs:
We operate with a number of checks and balances to safeguard the integrity of the Commission and it’s decisions. Since many of these assurance procedures are spread throughout the website, we thought it appropriate to add this page to explain a few of the more important quality control procedures in one section. From the web page on "Frequently Asked Questions," we quote the questions and answers from number (21) and (22) on the officers and volunteers who make this organization possible:
(21) Why is the Commission so careful to keep it’s board members, etc. hidden? Isn't secrecy more typical of the criminal element in society?
First of all, many people are fully aware of who these individuals are, but choose along with the Commission to keep their names and identity in complete confidence. The purpose of this is to protect the good names and reputations of these people from being maligned. It is expected that criticisms against the Commission will occur, but the dedicated men and women who make this whole organization work will be safeguarded. We will be loyal to them and pledge our total loyalty to all those we work with. It is unfortunate, but true, that the world is full of critics who love to slander, put down and hurt even the most sincere of efforts. Frankly, criticism is so easy, but it can be very destructive, therefore, we are highly committed to the principle of protecting all who work with us. Should any individual, who is no longer involved with us, desire to reveal his or her identity that is completely within that person’s freedom to do so.
The other reason for strict confidentiality as to who are Board Members, etc. is to protect the organization from being corrupted in any way by influencing any one of the key decision makers through gifts, donations or threats of any kind that could compromise their ability and commitment to be totally objective and fair. Any possible conflict of interests, or personal gain from the merits or outcome of any decision, disqualifies that individual from being involved in any way with that particular case.
As a further policy to protect the integrity of all that is important to us, all that we hold near and dear, no one who works with us may receive any medals, honors, knighthood, title or dignity from any source as long as they are involved or can influence any action of the certification process.
It is hoped that all these checks and balances will result in the utmost, the highest, most reliable, and accurate decisions available on earth.
(22) How can I become a member of one of the Boards?
First of all, no one makes a salary–everyone is a volunteer. Every position must be a matter of personal commitment. Secondly, to be on any one of the boards is by invitation only and that only after years demonstrating one has integrity and whole heartedly supports high standards and will not compromise their integrity. Integrity, after all, is more important than knowledge. Experts and consultants can be hired, but the standards must never be altered or become negotiable under any circumstances.
When anyone contributes higher sums of money, such as, those who become non-royal high diplomates and fellows of the International Commission, they will receive a the report of an outside auditing firm showing that none of the money was used for anything other than the express goals of the Commission for monarchy, etc. No money contributed goes into anyone’s pockets. The Commission is completely run by committed volunteers and does not make a single penny on anything. The auditor’s report will show that to be the case.
We have been asked how we can function so inexpensively. The major reason is we wanted to provide a service--not make money. We serve as volunteers, therefore, we can keep costs low and be a benefit to people worldwide.
Other checks and balances, the principles that we presently operate by, will be elaborated eventually to further show how we intend to protect and vouchsafe the integrity of this organization on a permanent basis for generations to come.
The International Commission on Nobility and Royalty is organized as an active corporation in the State of Nevada. The following is our State entity number: E0393452005-6. We have a leased office till June of 2010 with a large meeting room, a bank account, both state and local business license, phone and fax numbers, etc. This arrangement is more than adequately for our needs until the time comes that we are able to expand and enlarge the scope of our activities.

Peter Harradine is the only officer who is presently allowed to be a public official. He is the webmaster, the one who officially speaks for the Commission and communicates with the public at this time. Despite his corporate titles, the rules and regulations of the Commission, as a check and balance, do not allow him, or anyone else who is involved with the public, to influence any of the important board certification processes, procedures or decisions.
D. Edward Goff, Ph.D., DBA, a longtime member, has accepted being a special representative of The International Commission on Nobility and Royalty. We would like to introduce Dr. Goff, who has accepted the position of being a special representative. Dr. Goff has turned this position down for a long-time and finally decided he would start promoting the ideals and goals of the Commission after all the help we have given him, and he has given us. The following is part of his resume:
Dr. Goff was a District Scout Executive with two national records for goal achievement. He was an officer in the United States Navy and achieved the highest SMI inspection results his ship had in ten years. He earned a Ph.D. in clinical psychology and earned the American Psychotherapy Association's highest distinction that of a "master therapist" for unusually high achievement documented in a Federal research project with troubled youth. Dr. Goff has given three regional presentations for NATSAP and gave a presentation entitled, "New Discoveries about the Brain: Practical Implications for the Treatment of Clients" recently at the national conference for the APA in September of 2010 in which he received high reviews. He is now on their National Advisory Board and has participated on APA panels at their national conferences. Dr. Goff is an assistant professor and board member of the full accredited "American College of Genealogy, Heraldry and Documentary Sciences," which promotes genealogy, heraldry, nobility, royalty and chivalry. (See: http://college-of-genealogy.com)
Dr. Goff has been helping the International Commission all along and is the survivor of a scam, who did some thing right and some things very wrong. Because he believed so strongly in Edmund Burke's statement that, "All that is needed for the forces of evil to win is for good men to do nothing," Dr. Goff has consistently worked to protect others. He asked for our help, and together with 12 others, but mostly because of Dr. Goff's heroism and determination, the con artist, Antonio Boada, lost his fraudulent business and his solicitor, Roger Pitts-Tucker, who helped Mr. Boada cheat some people and benefit others lost his 30 year practice. This is no small thing, because Mr. Boada had made almost two million dollars robbing innocent unsuspecting people in three short years. We are exceedingly pleased to have Dr. Goff's assistance in this major way.
Other officers of the ICNR include an individual who holds a JD degree and is a practicing attorney, plus five other officers who hold bachelors degrees and a nurse. Again, no one makes any money. All are volunteers who enable this organization to accomplish its purposes inexpensively so as to provide a public service to people all over the world. Beside the officers, there are over 60 regular and certified members.
The Office of a Special Representative
When the Commission is fully operational, several special representatives will be identified to be the public arm of the Commission and give talks to demonstrate to the public the importance of our cause and the need to promote it and become a contributing part of it. This in one of our future objectives. We fully intend to do what other organizations have never done before in this field. It will take time, and with the help of those who also care about these things, we can accomplish a lot of good, even some amazing things that many think are unlikely, but we believe are just a matter of time and money.
