2011 College Council Membership and Insurance Awards
Recruiting new members is essential to the continued growth and success of every council and the Order. This is especially true in college councils, as graduate members leave campus annually to seek employment, further their education, or join new parishes. Offering a college man membership in the Knights of Columbus gives him the lifelong opportunity to improve his own life, his faith, and his community.
With a net gain of 61 new members, we are pleased to present the award for the Highest Net Gain in Membership went to Council 11902 at Santa María de los Ángeles Seminary in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The award for Highest Percent Gain in Membership went to Council 10806 at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, having increased their membership by 72.7 percent.
The Order’s insurance program is an integral part of Father McGivney’s vision for the Knights of Columbus. With more than 80 billion dollars of insurance in force, the Order’s members and their families are living this vision of our founder as our Order continues to provide for them in their times of need.
