State Convention




The 2019 State Convention is being welcomed back to the capitol city of the state- Des Moines. From May 3-5, over 500 brother Knights and the families will descend on the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for three days of spiritual growth, fraternal rejuvenation, and quality training and support.

The State Convention encompasses a number of special events, including an exemplification of the Patriotic Degree, the Annual Meeting of the Fourth Degree District, the presentation of the 2019 Individual merit and council awards, and the annual meeting of the Iowa State Council.

There are many activities for the wives and kids to keep them quite busy throughout the weekend. All events are very affordable in an effort to have as many of our KofC families with young kids able to join in our celebration.

We hope you discover the excitement that is the State Convention, and look forward to seeing you in Des Moines May 3-5, 2019!



Our primary source of funding the hospitality aspects of the State Convention is through our raffle. Proceeds are split between the Iowa Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation's Helping Hands Fund, and local charities of the host site of the Convention.

Every council should have received some raffle tickets during their District's Meeting. Ticket stubs and money, as well as request for extras, can be sent to:

Michael Kockler, 310  31st St. S.W. Altoona, Iowa 50009-4703; e-mail


Convention Ads

A great way to support the Convention and promote your business, church, or council is through a Convention Ad. Many councils and individuals purchase an ad in honor of their priests, promote their council, or for a fraternal recognition. Consider supporting our Convention by purchasing an ad.
