Brother Knights,

Resolutions: Now is the time to be working on Resolutions if your council intends to submit any at the Annual Meeting on May 17-19, 2019.  Resolutions must be submitted to the WSC State Secretary by March 15, 2019, to be reviewed and considered at the Annual Meeting.  An Executive Summary of the Resolutions process can be found on the WSC Website under the Of Interest section of the home page, directly under the State Deputy’s picture (nice smile). Instructions on how to write a resolution are found in the Grand Knight’s Handbook (Part II Section 3, pp II-16 to II-19), which is posted on the WSC Website at the following link:  Plan well to allow time for council review and vote before submission to the State Secretary.

Form 990 Tax Filing:  As I reported in the January bulletin, Councils must do three things to comply with IRS filing requirements:

1) obtain an EIN from the IRS (new councils this year);

2) register its EIN with the Home Office Legal Department (new councils this year); and,

3) file an annual return with the IRS (all councils must do this).

District Deputies listed in the following chart need to contact me soonest to resolve council filing discrepancies. Please follow up with me by the end of February.  Thank you Districts 7 and 13 for your quick response.


Vivat Jesus!
