Online Membership Chair

September 2022

Brothers, I wanted to give everyone a brief overview on online members (eMembers). When a Catholic gentleman signs up online, they have a section to enter a specific council number if they know which council they want to join. Those signups go directly into the Prospect tab for a council that can be viewed daily by the Grand Knight and Financial Secretary. An email is automatically sent as well to the GK and FS. Each council should be proactive in reading in the candidate and getting them to go through an Exemplification. Once they complete the Exemplification, the GK or FS can enter their ceremony date in and then the eMember will be added as a new member within 24-48 hours. When a Catholic gentleman signs up online and they leave the council number box blank, an email is sent to the Online Membership Chairman for each state. I get those emails and then I will assign the new Knight (eMember) to the best suited council. The GK and FS would then be able to see these in the Prospect tab. The same process should be followed with reading in the candidate and then getting them to an Exemplification. Once the State Program Guide is available, I will begin emailing the GK and FS for each council when I assign an eMember to their council. As we continue to celebrate the Oct. 31, 2020 Beatification of our beloved founder, Blessed Michael J. McGivney, please enter the Promo Code BLESSEDMCGIVNEY for 12 months of free online membership. When a new brother joins make sure he is read in at your council and exemplified as quickly as possible. If your Council does not have the resources to conduct a live exemplification, there are many alternatives. Work with your District Deputy to see if another council is hosting an exemplification. Set up a time where you can have them watch through Supreme’s website the on-demand exemplification with yourself, another brother Knight or Field Agent. They may also attend the live online exemplification that is listed on the state calendar. Many times, the reason a fellow Catholic man is not a Knight, is because someone never asked them to join. Be that brother Knight and invite them to join us!
