Welcome to our new Fraternal Year. I hope you all are as excited about what we are going to accomplish as I am. We have the same Membership Team as last year ready to assist all of you in your quest to make Star.
As the Membership Director I am here to insure you get all the assistance you need recruiting and retaining members. Email or call me anytime. In areas that have potential for a New Council have no worries, because our experienced New Council Chairman Ed will guide you through the steps and help in every way. For our Spanish speaking brothers please take advantage of the Hispanic Council Chairman Matthew for recruiting, retaining or anything that you are in need of. Round Table Chairman Joseph wanted to remind all that the purpose of a Roundtable. Working with a sister Parish Priest in his needs.
This means you need to get the form done in first month or two and then serve the other Parish(s) for the entire year. He will assist you in getting the Roundtable form completed. Brother Jim our Council Reactivation Chairman has spearheaded a business card program that will help get the message out to others while engaged in activities everywhere. Please email us for details. Bob our College Councils Chairman is always working with all of these younger members while keeping them up to date on the Supreme activities going on for them. Jeff the Ceremonies Chairman wants you to hold a Admission Degree in every District every month and get as many Members through the Knighthood degree as possible. Ask him for assistance if having difficulty getting this going in your area. You also need to reach out to him as you get your District Degree set up and going. Our Retention Chairman Scott wants you to remember that retaining starts the very first day after the Admission degree.
Proposers and the Councils need to get our new Members active and engaged right away. If you haven't seen or heard from someone reach out. Do not let the dues letters be your only contact this year! It is said that the Knights of Columbus is the right arm of the Catholic Church and its Priests so it is paramount that our Membership is well known in every Parish and all its activities. The Membership Team's email addresses and phone numbers are published in the directory and on line so please do not hesitate to reach out to all or any of us as you need.
