2021-2022 Council Officer Elections & Reporting

A reminder, the NHSC recommended council elections to be held at their May council meetings to promote timely submission of reports to the State Council and Supreme.

Immediately after council elections the Report of Officers Chosen for the Term (#185) and Service Program Personnel Report (#365) should be submitted via the Member Management portal of Officers Online. This method immediately updates the Supreme Council system at the start of the new fraternal year with the name and contact information for all officers and directors of your council. Watch this short video tutorial to walk you through the easy process.

This information is also needed in providing the annual State Directory Book information. Every year the database must be wiped clean. So it is imperative that you annually submit the Council Grand Knight, Financial Secretary, Chaplain, and Council Delegates contact information for inclusion in the new Directory Book. It is also a time you can update any changes to your parish information and meeting dates and times. The June 15th Deadline is critical to have the new directory available to your councils by the July quarterly meeting.

I thank all of you that fulfilled your obligation in attending Saturday’s Winter Quarterly Meeting. Delegates are the representatives of your council and should be sharing the information provided. Also, we had two successful breakout sessions where attendees could see and talk directly with the panelists for questions and answers. We will be providing more opportunities to continue online Q/A sessions on specific subject & topics.

This week we have two Webinars for your benefit. As an added feature for the Rosary Program we will be hosting a Q&A at the conclusion of the rosary to assist councils that would like guidance on conduct online rosary in their council or parish. The same concept could be used to host a Culture of Life event or a Fraternal Benefits Night.
