What is the difference between Holy Royal Arch and Chapter?

The Holy Royal Arch is perhaps better recognised by its generic name of Chapter. As Craft Masons meet in a Lodge and address themselves as Brother, then members of the Holy Royal Arch meet in Chapters and refer to themselves as Companions.

In the first degree of Craft, the candidate is initiated into the Order. Thereafter, he is passed and raised. When he is admitted into the Supreme Degree of the Holy Royal Arch, he is exalted.
