A number of Sections, and even Lodges, around the world have paid 
staff. There is a historical precedent for this in the TS "Memorandum 
of Association" (1905), when the Society was incorporated at Madras: 

"5. Income and property applied to promotion of objects  

The income and property of the Society, whencesoever derived, shall 
be applied solely towards the promotion of the objects of the Society 
as set forth in this Memorandum of Association, and no portion 
thereof shall be paid or transferred directly or indirectly by way of 
dividends, bonus, or otherwise by way of profits to the persons who 
at any time are or have been members of the Society or to any of them 
or to any person claiming through any of them: Provided that nothing 
herein contained shall prevent the payment in good faith of 
remuneration to any officers or servants of the Society or to any 
members thereof or other person in return for any services rendered 
to the Society."
