April 21, 2014: this week for Virginia Knights

  • This week's checklist

    April 21, 2014 - April is Squires Month.  The program is celebrating its 89th birthday this month. Virginia is a leader in forming new Squires Circles - has your council looked into it?  And for councils which already sponsor a circle, it's time to invite 18 year old Squires to become Knights!


    Your council nominating committee should be preparing a slate of officers for the next Fraternal Year to be presented at the May business meeting. Don't delay - do it now!


    The April issue of  Star Council News is now available HERE.


    The 2014 Virginia annual convention is now less than 2 weeks away.  It will be held at the Dulles Hyatt Hotel in Herndon May 2-4, 2014. Find a complete set of convention materials HERE.


    The spring exemplification of the Fourth Degree will be held in Roanoke on April  26, 2014. Make your hotel reservations by April 11.  Full details HERE.


    Material from the March 2014 State Quarterly Meeting is HERE.  Material from the January 2014 Midyear Meeting in Richmond is HERE.

  • Membership:  Beat the Goal!

    As of the 1st of April, the total number of new members in Virginia for this fraternal year so far is  1,072.  That's an increase of 161 members during March.  In order to meet our goal of 1400 new members for the year, we need another 328 new Knights.  Please make membership recruitment a major priority during 2014!  Read more about our strategy for membership growth this year.
