From the State Deputy
Michael J. Gasper
March 1, 2017
At the March 11th Quarterly Meeting in Charlottesville, there will be all day training for council members who are interested in becoming council officers or finding out what a council officers does. The training is open to any interested council member, not just the Deputy Grand Knights.
From the Membership Director:
One of the many things we covered this year regarding membership and retention is the direct relation between Programs and Membership.
This is a direct correlation of Value to Price. Now this may sound like a sales theory, and it is, but it applies to almost everything we do: when we see Value, the Price becomes negligible. The reverse is also true: no Value, Price is a non-entity.
The Value as a Knight is in all we do. The Price (dues) is lessened. Keeping the council members active and involved increases growth and reduces delinquencies.
When presenting the Knights, then, remember Value surpasses Price every time!
