We are a full quarter in to this year and am more than just a bit concerned about that FAST START we all committed to at this Year's beginning. One new member and an admissions degree per council each month is not too much to ask. Is it? A couple of Districts still at zero for year??? Several Councils still at zero for year as well???
ALL DDs and GKs need to formulate a plan to accomplish each Council’s expected goal. Break that quota number down to per month and challenge all in your Membership to be involved. There are a lot of activities going on this time of year and each and every one of those should be a Council recruitment event. Make sure you have a presence at all of these and, at minimum, collect names and phone numbers to follow up on after the event.
October is Supreme Order wide Church Drive month. Start off by asking for pulpit announcement and placement after masses for as many weekends as possible. Gather names and numbers of those who expressed a possible interest. Use to follow up, as opposed to trying holding them up after Mass trying to get a Form 100 when they probably have plans with family and in a hurry. If not able to get a pulpit announcement, how about the Council bulletin?? When was the last time you all did something like that? Lets get behind this initiative with an all out press and get your Council back on track (or ahead of the curve).
Thank all of you for everything and please don’t hesitate to call me, the State Officers, and any of the Directors or Chairman for any questions or needs.
