Worthy Brothers All,

We are called upon to invite every Catholic gentleman and their families the opportunity to join our Order. The best way for a man not to join our Order is by not inviting and offering him and his family the opportunity to join us.

Vivat Jesus!

Worthy Brothers,

Greetings from the Crystal Coast!  I want to thank everyone for their hard work and all the efforts in recruiting this year so far. Your efforts have paid off.

As of the writing of this article, the North Carolina Knights have brought in 473 new members. That is an average of almost 68 new members a month, which is behind our goal of 75 per month overall. We are only 52 members under the yearly quota.

Currently we are number 11 in the entire Order. The eight jurisdictions that are ahead of us are outside the United States. This means that we are the number three jurisdiction in the United States!  Great Job!  We are slowly gaining speed but we still have a long way to go to 900, but with everyone’s help, we can achieve this goal.  I want to thank all the councils who have brought in new members in to the Order. For all those who have not, please consider this your opportunity to change that and begin your recruiting efforts today.  We are called upon to invite every Catholic gentleman and their families the opportunity to join our Order. The best way for a man not to join our Order is by not inviting and offering him and his family the opportunity to join us.

I enjoyed seeing all of you at the Mid-Year meetings held in Kinston for the East on January 6 and in Salisbury for the West on January 27 during the general information session and breakout sessions. I know all of you have many questions on the E-Membership rollout that occurred on January 29th. Please check the State and Supreme Websites for updates to the E-Membership rollout. New information is constantly coming out and we will keep you updated as the information is made available.

Now is the time to order your Recruitment kits for your church drives that you are planning for March and April. Please see the State Website for the forms to use to order the kit and the form you will use to report your numbers.

Also remember that the Insurance Agents are a key part of membership – the two go hand in hand. Membership growth is the fuel that keeps this great fraternal engine running. All of our charitable works at the council level are thanks to our hard-working members. And more members equal more charity. We know that the membership blitz is a tried and true way for councils to get more men to join. We see these pushes often in March, in celebration of Founder’s Day, and again in October. These drives are successful because brother Knights have increased visibility speaking or presenting during and after Masses and at special events. We must remember that we have a duty to ask each and every Catholic gentleman to join our ranks for the good of the Church, the community and the Order.

During the rest of the year, we often “forget” to ask men to join and to bring their families into the Knights of Columbus family. You probably know an eligible Catholic man you could ask today. What if the only reason he hasn’t joined is because no one has asked him yet?

When telling a prospect about the strengths of the Order, don’t forget our greatest fraternal benefit: our insurance program. This is often a “selling point” to a potential member who is on the fence. Many members become Knights simply to be able to buy coverage to protect their family. Soon after, they realize the good our charitable works do for their community, and they are proud to be members.

As professional Knights of Columbus insurance agents, these Brother Knights look forward to helping us grow in fraternity in any way that they can.

District Deputies, I am asking for your help in keeping your councils motivated and accountable for the goals that they set. You are a vital part to them achieving their goals. Unleash your awesomeness! RMPC’s, I am asking for your help. You are the Regional Membership and Program Consultants. Please keep your DD’s motivated and accountable to the district goals that they have set. With everyone working together, there is no question that everyone will reach their goals this fraternal year.

Please check the State Website for the Membership team who is here to assist you in achieving your goal of Star Council this year. Please know not hesitate to contact myself or anyone on the Membership team. We are ready and willing to assist you in achieving your goals. It is an honor to serve you and your councils as your State Membership Director for this state of North Carolina and for the Order.

Worthy Brothers,

Happy Holidays from the Crystal Coast!  I want to thank everyone for their hard work and all the efforts in recruiting this year so far. Your efforts have paid off.

As of the writing of this article, the North Carolina Knights have brought in 404 new members. That is an average of almost 68 new members a month, which is behind our goal of 75 per month overall. At the halfway point, we are only 46 members under the yearly quota.

Currently we are number 9 in the entire Order. The eight jurisdictions that are ahead of us are outside the United States. This means that we are the number one jurisdiction in the United States!  Great Job!  We are slowly gaining speed but we still have a long way to go to 900, but with everyone’s help, we can achieve this goal.  I want to thank all the councils who have brought in new members in to the Order.

The best way for a man not to join our Order is by not inviting and offering him and his family the opportunity to join us.

The Mid-Year meetings will be held in Kinston for the East on January 6 and in Salisbury for the West on January 27. Again, I encourage you to register to attend the meeting that is closest to your area and to invite your Membership Director to attend. There will be a general information session and a breakout session for Membership at each meeting.  In the breakout session, we will discuss how to reach our goal of 900 new members for the year and to plan for the remaining months ahead as well as the incentives that your council and districts can attain for the second half of the year .
