Thank you to all Councils whom are membership-active, and thanks to all the District Deputies with membership-active Districts! For those whom are not yet membership-active, please expect for the Membership team and myself to see what we can do to help you.

One of the best ways for you to recruit new members is the Delta Church Drive program. Our Assistant Regional Growth Director Chuck Davlin is holding training sessions right now to help you understand and implement the Delta Church Drive for your October Church drives.

Please see below for the upcoming training sessions, you must attend to order your Delta Church Drive kit from Chuck. Please reach out to Chuck the following email address to register: chuck.davlin@kofc.org

The kit contains everything you need to plan and execute your Delta Church Drive.

UPCOMING ONLINE TRAINING for September:

Tuesday – 9/03 7:30 PM-8:30 PM Pacific DST

Tuesday – 9/24 7:30 PM-8:30 PM Pacific DST

Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone. https://global.gotomeeting.com/join/734028765

You can also dial in using your phone. United States: +1 (646) 749-3122 Access Code: 734-028-765

New to GoToMeeting? Get the app now and be ready when your first meeting starts:

The format is easy to implement and gets results! The key element is that you must request a Council landing page from Supreme at http://info.kofc.org/pagerequest. You will need to provide a name and email address (Grand Knight or Membership Director) and a description of how you want your Council described.

 

My brothers, thank you for the hard work you are doing for our Order and Church, please keep up the good work. Remember that we are building God’s Kingdom here on earth.

 

Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally,


Thomas C. Williams
