We are in the FINAL MONTH of this 2017-18 Fraternal year!
Last Chance to get those forms submitted NOW, since it takes time to process the submissions and forms will NOT be accepted at the end of June!
We have MANY council’s on track to be a STAR council this year, but they just need to complete a form or two.
Make sure to get the REQUIRED Columbian Award Application Form SP7 submitted by June 15th to allow for processing. It can be found on the Supreme’s Form webpage - http://www.kofc.org/un/en/members/resources/forms/council.html
Thank you to all the councils that submitted the forms throughout the year, reporting the GREAT ACTIVITIES their council has performed!
I would also like to say “THANK YOU” to the Team of Programming Directors and Chairman for their dedicated and caring work over the year! GREAT JOB!
NEW SUPREME PROGRAMMING CHANGE for the 2018-19 Fraternal Year!
The June/July 2018 Knightline has information to help you gain an understanding of this new programming structure. If you didn't receive one, it is available at http://www.kofc.org/un/en/resources/lc/knightline/knightline_20180601_en.pdf
As mentioned in my breakout training session “Planning for the next fraternal year” at the State Convention, Supreme is changing the Programming categories from 6 down to 4. Supreme has announced that after nearly 50 years since Surge… with Service was introduced as Supreme’s program model, and in order to simplify the program structure and better align programs under main priority areas, they have announced a new program model titled “Faith in Action”.
The new program categories will be: FAITH, FAMILY, COMMUNITY, & LIFE. (Councils should appoint a Director for each of these areas.)
Visit the Supreme website in the next few months for the latest information and updates on this program! Keep up to date by checking BOTH Supreme and State Websites, newsletters, and e-mails.
Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities (a.k.a. the “Tootsie Roll Drive”)
The Tootsie Roll order form and apron order form are on the State website “Forms page” - http://www.indianakofc.org/forms and there is a ‘fillable’ form at http://www.indianakofc.org/download/community/CharityDriveTootsieRollOrderform.pdf .
Transition Meetings: With your council’s election of officers coming up, make sure to schedule your councils “TRANSITION MEETING” for a smooth transition of ALL your Council Officers leaving their current office to transfer info and pass on their knowledge to the incoming officer. This will help your council succeed and be strong in its leadership.
*** LAST CHANCE TO SUBMIT FORMS ***
- ALL Forms must be submitted by June 15th to be processed and credited this year – DON’T WAIT!
REMEMBER - All forms need to be submitted online or sent by e-mail in PDF format in order to be credited, except those sent with a check, and make sure to copy (with PDF attachment) in an e-mail all those required at the bottom of the form.
NOTE: Page 13 in the 2017-18 State Program Guide has a Worksheet with ALL the Supreme and State Forms and their due dates. The “Due Date” is the last day for the form to be accepted, so get them submitted BEFORE the Due Date!
It is the Grand Knight's duty and responsibility to make sure ALL forms are submitted on time for his council. The Grand Knight does not need to be the submitter, but should have someone in the council with computer access submit the forms and the Grand Knight just needs to follow up to make sure the forms are submitted on time. So, council members need to step up and assist the Grand Knight, since we are all in this together. THIS is a GREAT WAY to get the “YOUNGER” MEMBERS with Computer Knowledge INVOLVED!!!
The District Deputy will be following up regarding the forms for the councils in his district, so help him out by submitting the forms BEFORE the due date.
