In 2014 a derbhfine was held where Sir John McEwen, 5th Baronet of Marchmont and Bardrochat (whose family have been considered by many to be leaders of the Clan since the 1950’s) was nominated by the Clan and approved by the Lord
Lyon to be Commander for Clan MacEwen. The Clan reconfirmed their support during the International Gathering in 2019.  The precedent for these commanderships is for a period of 10 years. During this time the Commander
is to show the qualities and leadership along with the support of their clan. Upon successful completion of the Commandership, the Lord Lyon will grant a new Coat of Arms to confirm him as Chief of the name.
