It is important to let the host council know of the number of candidates and members that will be attending. 

It is very important for the candidates to be escorted by their sponsors or at least someone from their own Council, and for that person to report the new candidates’ attendance at the degree to the home Grand Knight or Fin Sec.

Candidates MUST have a current Admissions (1st) Degree Card to register.  Registration and lunch fees for candidates and members will be collected at registration. Lunch tickets will be provided as appropriate.  If your Council is paying for its candidates, register together so the Host Council can keep proper accounting.  The Host Council must make payment of the candidate fees to the AZ State Council upon completion of the Formation Degree.  Therefore, prompt payment is appreciated.

The exemplification of the Formation and Knighthood Degree is a special event; therefore, proper dress is required.  Shirts with collars, slacks and shoes are appropriate.  Shorts, tank tops, tee shirts, thong shoes are not acceptable dress for members or candidates. 

Please advise candidates and members not to bring pagers or cell phones to the degree.

Vivat Jesus!
