Coming Soon

We are always working to improve our Council Website system. Here is a preview of some new features we plan to introduce.

Shared Events
The ability to publish degrees and other events on a global listing is an important part of the KofC community. Soon we will offer that ability along with the ability to search by zip code and city for local events.
Assembly Websites
Our Patriotic Brothers are an important part of our communities. Soon we will be offering free sites to Assemblies affiliated with councils on our system.
Fraternal Activities Survey
Members will be able to submit Fraternal Activities Survey information directly from the members area. Your executive can then see tabulated results for use to submit the annual Fraternal Activities report to Supreme.
Member Email System
A member newsletter system will help you communicate with your members without requiring your GK or FS to send emails through the Supreme website.
Have a suggestion for a new feature? We welcome your input.
