Dear Brothers,

 I appreciate everyone’s hard work over the last couple of months.  We have started the fraternal year off strong, and I want to encourage everyone to keep that momentum going forward. I’m so excited to see so many councils active and doing wonderful things in their parishes and communities.

        If you haven’t ordered kits for various activities (i.e., church drives, soccer challenges, etc.) you should order them ASAP.  I don’t want to see councils suffer delays due to supply issues or slow delivery from US Mail or UPS.  Those able to log into officers online should order their supplies through the supplies online portal.  If you need more information about ordering supplies, please click here.

        Councils should already have laid the groundwork for preparing their membership drives.  Remember, there is more to it than just setting up a table somewhere in church and sitting there handing out brochures.  We need one on one interaction with prospective candidates, and we always need to be mindful of making sure we invite quality candidates to join our ranks.  In addition to the table in church, talk with your chaplains and pastors and have them push this as well.  Whether it is in a bulletin announcement or a two-minute reference at the end of mass, an invite from the pastor will go a long way in swaying a good Catholic man to join.  If you have never tried an open house, you will find that it will have amazing results.  Invite your insurance agent to attend as well and give some information.  Your field agents are your best recruiters.  I’ve been through their training, and I can tell you that they are well versed in speaking about the order and its benefits.  Invite your agent and get seven members out there including inviting prospects and hey, you just did a fraternal benefits night as well!  Two activities for the price of one!

        District Deputies, your 944 supreme report is due by September 15th.  Please make sure you have that report submitted by that due date and copy myself and the state forms chairman so we know that it was completed.  Also, make sure you are turning in your DD checklists.  Those checklists are vital to making sure that the councils are receiving credit for the state discovery awards.

        Again, thank you for all that you do and continue to keep up the good work.

Sincerely,

SK David C. Negrete, FN, FDD, PGK
