- All reports are submitted to Supreme – The Annual Survey of Fraternal Activity #1728 is one of the most important reports, as it provide the evidence to continue to secure our tax status, and directly helps our insurance program through better dividends. It is due on January 31, 2016. Also, the Columbian Award Form #SP-7 can be submitted as early as April 1, 2016.
- Service Programs - At the beginning of the fraternal year, we suggested building a program plan. How is your plan going? You should be well on your way to completing four activities in each of the six program service areas.
- Membership - The goal of a council is to continue to grow in membership. This is ever more important today with the mission from the Supreme Knight to “Build the Domestic Church, While Strengthening the Parish”. You can suggest an article from your Council Chaplain on his impression on what is needed to build the domestic Church and strengthen your parish. I am confident a Council Chaplain will welcome the opportunity to provide such an editorial for the membership.
