Arizona State Council Knights of Columbus - Fraternal Year 2021-2022
In July we announced a Fast Start incentive to reward Brother Knights who recruited 5 or more new members before September 30. We are now happy to announce new incentives that will reward recruiters, grand knights, and district deputies who grow the Order this year (July 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019).
Please share this information with your councils as soon as possible. It's vital that all fraternal leaders know about all incentives!

There's only one month left and so far 21 knights have hit the target and their gear is on the way! Look for an update on who they are and how many new members they've recruited in the next incentive update.
