I have printed up and sliced the attached document to make slips suitable for carrying in my wallet and, when I encounter a prospective member, I give him one slip with my name and contact info on it, and I jot down his name and contact info on another slip so that I can reach the prospect again at a later date. This sometimes seems to break the ice when discussing the KC's with a potential member.
Feel free to download and use or adapt this to suit your needs, and please feel free to provide comments/criticisms/suggestions on this.
Let me know if you use this or some other approach for membership recruitment.

There are many groups where the topic of invitation and new membership are discussed:
What does it all come down to? The individual indication to a prospective member that he (and his family!) would make a good member of the Knights of Columbus. Remember, one might have to ask five different men before one will say "yes" to joining the Knights of Columbus; this is typical! What about the other four? They're probably contemplating membership and just need more time and another asking or two or three. For the sake of the souls of Catholic men and their families, keep asking practical Catholic gentlemen to join the Knights of Columbus.
