Greetings Brother Knights:

Training is the very foundation of successful, growing councils. We would like you to attend our training seminar prepared just for you! You do not have to be a current council officer to attend. This training is also for council members interested in becoming council officers.

The courses provide basic information for all knights about how to operate a successful, growing council.  And, this Fall, we are also offering a financial secretary course for all knights. See the attachment for seminar information.

Seminars are scheduled for September 29th. Future seminars will take place on October 6th and November 3rd.  Attached are the two flyers for the September 29th Seminar.  Flyers for October and November will be published and distributed to you soon.

The doors will open at 8:00 am.  The courses begin at 9:00 am sharp.  We should complete the seminars by 12:30 pm.
