State Program Director
We are wrapping up the last day of the convention as of this writing. I'm so happy that I had a chance to talk and meet with the many knights and their families that attended the convention. I hope that everyone had an enjoyable weekend.
So now we are in the final stretch. Make sure you continue to submit a 10784 form after every council activity that is completed. Where are you in your progress towards star council? If you are on track to achieve this award, make sure all appropriate paperwork is turned in. One of the most common slip ups that councils experience is they do all the work but they never get the status of star council because they failed to turn in the SP7 form. That form is necessary to achieve star council. Start working on that now so you get it done and out of the way.
Also, starting May 1, councils should already have had their slate of officers published and announced and elections are now to be conducted until June 15th. If you haven't scheduled that yet, please do so. Once your election is completed please fill out Supreme form 185 (election of council officers). If you are making the changes in member management, make sure you notate that it is for the upcoming 2022-2023 fraternal year. If you don't put the correct fraternal year, their system will not know what you are doing. Also if you are making those changes in member management, please save a PDF copy and email it to myself and our state forms chairman.
As always, I want to thank each and everyone of you for all of your hard work and everything that you do for the order. You are the reason why this jurisdiction shines. Vivat Jesus! Viva Christo Rey!
