St. Columban Council 17152, Yelm / E-Prospect Card and Online Membership /

Member Mission Results / Incentives

Happy New Year!

Brother Knights,

Congratulations to DD Abundeo Reponte and GK Darren Johnson for forming a new council – St. Columban Council 17152, in Yelm, WA.  We are excited to see so much energy and enthusiasm in the members of the new council.  Great work brothers!

Online Membership launches another exciting initiative.  Councils can develop Council Landing pages through the Online Membership platform. Supreme will build a custom Prospect Landing Page for your council that you can use on a phone, a tablet or a computer.  This prospecting system gives councils the means to implement E-Prospect Cards, which can be used at all Faith in Action program events and at Membership recruitment events. Once you enter a prospect’s email address through this system, the prospect will receive a personalized email from your council and Supreme will enroll him in an email marketing campaign that will help him learn more about the Knights and what we do over time.  This will keep prospects informed and help facilitate the next step of Becoming a Knight when the time is right.

Worthy Chairman Renato Sacramento will be the point man for the WSC E-Prospect efforts.  More detailed information will be posted on the WSC Website and links will be forwarded to you via email in the coming weeks outlining steps to get started.

Continue to promote Online Membership as a key component in your recruitment efforts this year.  It doesn’t change who we are, it simply provides a digital tool for us to reach men where they are in today’s world.  In November, we had 8 new members join Online in the WA Jurisdiction.  For this fraternal year, 50 members have joined Online, and 18 have converted to local councils.  Since inception of the program last May, in our jurisdiction 61 members have joined Online and 25 of them converted to a local council.

Please review Membership Action Items for the month of January and the last six months, and ensure your plans are consistent with the State Membership Action Plan.  The State Membership Action Plan can be found at the following link:  http://www.kofc-wa.org/FrontPageContent/Membership/WSCMembershipActionPlan.pdf. Use the plan as the foundation for the council plan.  It will make your planning easier and it will create synergy (Unity) throughout the Washington State Council. 

Please review the Member Mission results through December 17, 2018, in this bulletin.  We need to bring in close to 69 new members per month across the state to meet our jurisdiction’s intake goal of 825 for the fraternal year.  If half of the jurisdiction’s councils recruit one new member each month, we will easily meet our membership goal.

Congratulations to the Division Leaders in Membership growth as of December 17, 2018:
