Knights of Columbus Webinar
Fraternal Operations During Coronavirus
Training for Online Exemplification
Wed. April, 8, 2020
8:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
Dear Brother Knight,
During this crisis, many good men are seeking to join the Knights and serve bravely with us in battling the coronavirus. I am excited to announce that we developed a new process that allows them to join while still observing the stay at home orders imposed by state and local governments. We call this our Online Exemplification.
We will host the first online exemplification on Thursday, April 16, at 8 PM EDT. Start lining up candidates now and coordinate the votes of your members to approve these candidates for admission. Next week, grand knights and financial secretaries will receive emails from me that they must forward to approved candidates. These emails will invite the candidates to participate in the online exemplification and they will contain a link to the registration form that every candidate must complete. Once registered, the candidates must log into the exemplification on April 16 and view it to the end. Upon completing the online exemplification, candidates can be processed as third-degree knights in your council. Existing first- and second-degree knights may also register to complete their journey to knighthood in the third degree.
We will offer detailed training on the online exemplification processes in a webinar on Wednesday, April 8 at 8:00 pm EDT. This will not be the exemplification itself. It is a training session for council leaders on how the exemplification will be done and how to manage your candidates. We will leave plenty of time for live questions and answers so that everyone will be comfortable with the plan for the ceremony on April 16.
Our goal is to bring in at least 1,000 new 3rd Degree Knights! I challenge you to make us exceed this goal by a huge margin. You can do it!
