For over 120 years, the Knights of Columbus organization you are a member of has been uniting Catholic men around the nation and the world. Now in charge of your own council of the biggest organization of its kind, you are charged with increasing membership, fundraising and organizing meetings.
As a fraternal service organization, the Knights of Columbus have a long standing history of benevolence in their communities and advocacy for Catholic rights. You can better serve these long standing missions by adopting the following tips to better your council:
Make Yourself Known
One of your biggest barriers towards a higher membership rate is as simple as letting like-minded individuals know you are here. Utilize the local churches in your area and make a post in their Sunday bulletins. Ask to speak briefly at the end of mass, or have the priest speak on your behalf. The more men who are aware of your existence, the better your chances of increasing your numbers.[click to continue...]
Selling Girl Scout Cookies is a time honored tradition that young girls have been taking a part in for decades. With a unique selection of delicious treats that are only available for a limited time, these should be an easy sell. Yet competition is high, and girl scouts and their troops need to be creative if they want to grab the attention of the cookie lovers in their area.
Top 10 Tips for Selling Girl Scout Cookies:
1) Repeat Business
Look over last year's sales sheets and give an early call to your best customers.
2) Get off the Block
Residential neighborhoods are saturated with door to door cookie sellers. Take your selling skills to local business districts and malls. There is great opportunity to make bulk sales with local small businesses, where you have multiple employees to make your sales pitch to.[click to continue...]
Halloween does not have to be just for the kids. This is the perfect holiday to let the kid in you don a Superman cape and have some fun with your friends. If you are thinking about kicking the holiday season off early this year with a Halloween party at your home here are some tips to ensure that all your ghosts and goblin friends can make it, and that they have a frighteningly good time.
Pick a Theme: This is not as corny as it may sound. When it comes to playing dress-up, grown-ups need a little more coaxing than kids do. Go traditional with a scary monster theme, or pick a decade. The '70's were fun or go old school with a '20's theme. Once you give your invitees a nudge in the right direction, they will come up with their own creative costumes.
Choose the Date: Halloween is the wrong night to throw a Halloween party. For one, you are going to spend half the night doling out candies to young trick-or-treaters. Secondly, a good amount of the people you want to come are going to have to bow out in order to do the same at their home. Pick a Friday or Saturday night before Halloween for your party. This will let you give your full attention to all of your guests, plus no worries about getting up early for work the next day.[click to continue...]
