Am I a new user or a returning user?
If you reserved a room or dinner ticket online in previous years, you already have an account created. Use the "Recover My Username" function, if you cannot remember the email address you used when you created your account.
Can any member of the Order and their family attend the Supreme Convention?
The supreme convention is open to any member of the Order that wishes to attend. Please note that only members of the Order in good standing can gain access to business sessions.
What hotel is the convention being held at and what is the room rate?
The host hotel for the 131st Supreme Convention is the JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Hotel and the KofC contracted room rate is $195.00 U.S. funds, plus applicable local taxes. Due to space constraints at the headquarters hotel, the Supreme Council has contracted with three satellite hotels (Hyatt Place, Courtyard by Marriott, and Residence Inn), which will be offered at a rate of $129.00 per night.
Do I call the hotel directly to book a room?
No, the hotels that the Supreme Council have contracted will not accept any reservations from Knights of Columbus members unless they are made through the Supreme Secretary’s Office. Reservation confirmations will be acknowledged by the hotel via email to the email address you provide when registering online at www.kofc.org/reservations. All room reservations must be received at the Supreme Council Office prior to the JUNE 30, 2013 registration cutoff date.
How do I get tickets to the States Dinner and what’s the dress code for the evening?
On Tuesday August 6th the JW Marriott will play host to the annual Knights of Columbus States Dinner. Tickets are $60 each and can be ordered online at www.kofc.org/reservations. Dress for the evening is formal attire, most men wear tuxedos with a white dinner jacket and many of the ladies wear dresses to this gala event for over 2,000 knights and their families.
Where do I go to pick up my states dinner tickets and to get name badges for myself and my family members?
The Supreme Secretary’s Office will be located in the Cibolo Canyon Ballroom 8/9 at the JW Marriott Hotel and will be the location where all convention attendees will come to get name badges and states dinner tickets. The office is also where all elected convention delegates should come to register prior to Tuesday’s Opening Business Session.
Do I need a name badge?
Every Supreme Convention Attendee will need a name badge and should wear it at all times. Gaining access to any Supreme Convention event will necessitate any attendee having their name badge with them.
Spouses and any family of all members must accompany the member to the Supreme Secretary’s Office in order to obtain their name badge. A valid Membership Card will need to be presented to obtain convention badges.
