The above statement is not quite correct: The Theosophical Order of
Service is NOT an organization that is part of the TSA headquartered in
Wheaton. In fact, it is organizationally not part of any Theosophical
Society, but an independent international organization. However, most or
all of its officers are members of the TS Adyar in various countries and
the current international president of TOS is Radha Burnier. Members of TOS
need not be members of the Theosophical Society.

It was founded in 1908 by Annie Besant to "provide an opportunity for
participation in activities which promote the first object of the T.S."
TOS International publishes a newsletter, "THE SERVICE LINK."
