Council 2181, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia Canada
Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Come see just what we are all about and take the first steps to enhance your personal life by viewing the segment, "Why Join?"

Membership Director:  Br. Danny Amirault

Recruitment, Retention and Insurance Promotion

The many good works of the Order are entirely dependent on an involved, committed and growing membership. After all, without a strong membership base and regular efforts to attract new Knights and replace those who’ve left, none of the other important council efforts on behalf of the Church and community would be possible.

Each council must be proactive in its approach to membership to ensure success. You cannot sit back and expect membership growth to occur on its own. An organized and active membership team are an absolute must for EVERY council.

The membership committees should be organized as described on page 5 of program manual (link below) and on the chart on this page. As membership director, committee chairman or committee member, you are responsible for guiding the growth of your council.

Every Knight can and should play a role in the over-all membership activities. Some will function best as part of recruitment teams or as individual recruiters. Others who are not comfortable approaching prospects directly, can contribute by identifying prospects for recruiters to contact from among their family members, friends, co-workers and other acquaintances.

You and the other members of the membership committees should immediately begin planning the programs and events that will ensure a successful year of membership activity. A well rounded and continuous program should employ various initiatives and include the participation of many members. A combination of recruitment methods — church drives, open house programs, two-on-one team recruiting, individual recruiting, “VIP” Club promotion, etc. — along with retention and insurance promotion
efforts, will produce the award winning results desired. The key is to immediately get organized and get started.
