Training Sessions - CANCELLED

Worthy Grand Knights,

The Arizona State Council of the Knights of Columbus strives to give each of us the necessary training and tools we need to make meaningful contributions to our councils and parishes.  Unfortunately, there are times when our intentions are affected by outside influences.  That is the case now.

Our Supreme Regional MPC Patrick Maloney will not be able to travel to Arizona to conduct the scheduled training sessions the week February 5th through February 10th following recent reassignment of MPC jurisdictions by our Supreme Knight.  The four sessions scheduled for next week will need to be rescheduled.

My thanks to all Grand Knights, council officers and everyone involved in securing the facilities and stepping up to host a training session.  As we learn who our new MPC is, and his availability, I will be contacting you in the hopes of securing these facilities again.

Until we can establish a timeframe to reschedule these sessions I hope you continue to take advantage of the Supreme Webinar training sessions that continue to be available through the Supreme website at kofc.org/trainingmicrosite.

Should you have any questions please contact our State Training Coordinator Bob Julien at rajulien@cox.net or 480.707.9246 (c).

Worthy Grand Knights,

I hope that many of you have taken advantage of the Supreme Webinar training sessions that have been presented over this past Fraternal Year. 

To supplement this training the State Council has been exploring topics and dates to provide additional training for our Council Officers.  This in person training is not limited to just officers, any member that is interested is welcome to attend.

State Training Coordinator FDD Bob Julien has worked with Supreme to have our Supreme Membership and Program Consultant, Pat Maloney, schedule four training sessions during the week of February 5th – 10th

In response to requests from our membership to offer training at locations other than central Phoenix, Bob has arranged for these sessions to be held in Scottsdale, Globe, Tucson (TBD) and Show Low.  We will continue to make training sessions available throughout out State.

These sessions will be presented by our MPC, who is a Past State Deputy from Washington and been involved with conduction many training sessions over the years.  Pat was in Arizona last fall and held sessions about recruiting and retention.

The primary topic for these sessions will be Building the Domestic Church.  Other topics will be covered as requested by the sessions audience.

It will help a great deal if you send a message to the Point of Contact (POC) for the location you plan to attend so the host Council knows how many members to expect.  Please copy Bob Julien as well on you message.

Bob Julien's contact information is rajulien@cox.net or 480-707-9246.
