Pinnacle Award

In 2009 – 2010 the Circle of Honor Award was revised to include Recruitment, New Council Development, Round Tables and Council Reactivation.

Each of the above areas were assigned a quota for each state deputy to achieve.

When the state deputy meets all four of his Circle of Honor goals and increases his membership quota to 110 percent, he receives the Supreme Knight’s Pinnacle Award. For 2009-10, four jurisdictions met and/or exceeded all of their required goals.
