At Dreiburgen Yule 2004, Steinsee's branch designation was changed from Canton to Stronghold. Corpora defines a stronghold as an "institutional branch based at a military installation." Whereas a canton must have at least five members and at least three officers at all times, an institutional branch does not. To quote the Organizational Handbook (III.C.7):

A special type of local branch is available for use at schools or military bases, or in other situations where membership is likely to fluctuate for reasons beyond the members' control. The "territory" of such branches is defined in terms of affiliation with the institution where they are based, not in terms of physical boundaries. Institutional branches may report directly to a kingdom, but if their institution is located within the borders of a branch of any other class, they report through that branch. They differ from other local branches in that they go dormant if membership falls below five (5), rather than being disbanded.
