My brother Knights,

We are approaching the end of the first quarter of the fraternal year, how are your efforts going? You should be close to achieving 25% of your membership goals by now on your journey to Star Council! Many Councils have a slow start over the summer months but all Councils should be fully active now.

So how are we doing as a State in our membership goals? To date, we have recruited 105 new members, with a net of 73. This is a little more than half of where we need to do be at this point of the year. The WSC always gets off to a slow start but there are some Councils that are doing really well:

 

Congratulations to St. Ann Council 15462 in Tacoma, led by Grand Knight Porfirio Montes. Brother Porfirio and his Membership Director have earned Personalized Sport Tec jacket for their efforts. Councils 13395, 11789, 14268, 14852, 11642, 894 and 17257 are all on track for the same prize. Who wants to join them? I challenge you to spend the state’s money on new jackets!

Currently, we have 59 Councils are membership active (have recruited at least one new member this fraternal year). My question to the other 107 Councils, what can I do to help you? Please remember that every program you do is a chance to recruit new members! Other than a very few Councils who Supreme recognizes as having saturated their area, you should have opportunities to bring in new members. Remember that strong programs are the best way to attract new members, and have new members allows you to do more programs.

One area where we are shining is online membership. Our goal this year is to attract 10-15% of our new members via online membership - we are currently at almost 25% of our new members coming via online membership. Please remember that online membership does not replace your Council’s efforts, this is a new way to reach potential members.

Finally, please share with me your recruiting successes and I will publish them in the bulletin. Your success and methods can inspire other Councils to emulate you and jump-start their own efforts.

Thank you for all your efforts and let me know what I can do to assist you.

 


Vivat Jesus!

Fraternally,
