Candidates sought for State Council elected office

The State Council is run by dedicated volunteers. Some are retired, most are working Knights with kids at home. In order to provide the proper support to our nearly 250 councils throughout the state, we need good men to join us.

During the upcoming State Convention, there will be elections for the following offices:

State Deputy- serves as CEO of the State Council; gives leadership and operational direction to all aspects of the Order within the state; ensures goals and aims of the Order are fully implemented.

State Secretary- serves as official clerk of the State Council; records minutes of Annual Meeting and Executive Committee meetings; does other duties as assigned by State Deputy

State Treasurer- functions similarly to a Council Treasurer; processes funds, issues checks, helps with investments of the State Council; Ensures local councils have submitted IRS Form 990

State Advocate- ensures meetings & functions of State Council follows the bylaws and rules of the Order; does NOT have to be a lawyer; helps councils with legal issues

State Warden- helps Councils with protocol concerns; ensures meetings of the state are properly arranged and organized; assist in the overall direction of the State Council

Representative to the Executive Committee- gives an intro look into State Council operations; allows for independent voice on affairs and decisions; might assume additional duties


Brother Knights are eligible to run for office if they are a member of the Order in the Knighthood (3rd) Degree. Candidates for the position of State Deputy also must be an insured member. In order to appear on the printed ballot, one must declare no later than fifteen (15) days before the beginning of the Annual Meeting. For the 2019 year, that day will be April 19.

If you are interested in running for elected office, please send an email to Admin Assistant Ed Pancrazio at You will need to provide someone who will nominate you during the Annual Meeting.
