As a reminder, the state convention is quickly approaching. Our council should send 2 voting delegates. As Grand Knight, Michael Majeres will be the first delegate.
The by-laws of our Order provide for the representation of delegates from councils in good standing to our State Convention. Specifically, the referenced by-law’ is as follows
Chapter II Sec. 12(a) – State Councils shall consist of the Grand Knight and a Past Grand Knight, actually residing in the state or jurisdiction, from each subordinate council in good standing…………… If there be more than one Past Grand Knight, the council shall elect the one to represent it in the State Convention. A council having no past Grand Knight may elect any of its Third Degree members in good standing in lieu thereof as a representative of said council in the State Council. Each subordinate council shall elect alternates for representatives in the State Council.
If there is a Past Grand Knight who wishes to attend, they should let the Grand Knight (KofC9597.email@example.com) know before March 8th. 3rd Degree Knights should also inform the Grand Knight if they wish to be considered as alternates, in case no PGK is available. If there are multiple candidates, we will schedule a special meeting on March 12th to elect delegates.
