From the State Deputy

February 1, 2017


Brothers all:


Future Officer Training


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.  Training has been a big topic in the past few years.  The Training staff will be presenting an informative presentation, and will be answering or finding the answers to our future officer’s questions.  Make plans to carpool to Charlottesville to participate.


3rd Quarter Membership


January intake started at a snail’s pace for the first half of the month, but Virginia came through in the 2nd half, so we are on our way to success.  Once the final January intake numbers are in, Virginia will earn $400 to $550, which will go back to the high performing councils of the 3rd Quarter.  In addition to this money, any council recruiting at least 6 members in the 3rd quarter will receive a Domestic Church Kiosk & Booklet Set.  As of January 31st, 3 councils already have 5 new members, 2 councils have 4 new members, and 6 council have 3 new members – great work.


The state council recruiter awards have reset for the 3rd quarter.  Recruiters with 3, 5, 10 and 20 new members, in the 3rd quarter, are eligible for awards.  In the 1st quarter, there were 7 winners at the 3 member level, and 7 winners at the 5 member level.  For the 2nd quarter, there were 25 winners at the 3 member level and 11 winners at the 5 member level.  Let’s get recruiting, so the list of winners grows and we get a few 10 or 20 member winners.


As of January 31st, Virginia is 80 members away from our 28,000th member.  The 28,000th Knight AND his proposer will each receive a Knights of Columbus jacket embroidered with their name and 28,000th Virginia member or proposer.  Check the state website for more information on the awards.

Fraternally, Mike Michael J. Gasper State Deputy Jurisdiction of Virginia
