Membership Director

A growing council is a vibrant and exciting council spurred on by new ideas and new lifeblood for the many and varied activities of the council. Without new members the council becomes stagnant and as time passes slowly drift away from it's mission. The duties of the membership director include recruiting new members through direct contact with prospective candidates as well as encouraging everyone in the council to prospect for new members. The director must then follow up on prospective candidates after they have signed their application for membership to assure they are voted upon and approved by the council at a regular business meeting or an Officers and Directors meeting. In addition the director must then insure that each approved candidate attends a 1st Degree ceremony where he is officially declared a Knight of Columbus. Keith Archer grew up in Oklahoma City and came to the Dallas area for work in his mid-20s. He’s a project manager for Weldon Parts. Keith spends most Saturdays participating in the Catholic ministry that’s held at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center in downtown Dallas. Keith and Mary have been married for 29 years.

You could have a great impact on people’s lives by getting involved in your community – one way we do that is through our service program we call The Knight Hands. We assist the needy in the Holy Spirit parish area with minor home repairs, household chores, and transportation services.
