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:

We have recently upgraded two of our most popular features, text messaging and text-to-speech recordings.
Customers of DialMyCalls that are currently using version 2.0 can login and immediately utilize the two new upgrades. Your feedback is extremely helpful and has makes it possible for us to constantly make improvements to our mass notification system.
When utilizing text message broadcasting in the past, customers had to try and fit their important message into 117 characters - the days of trying to cut out important details from your texts are gone! Customers will now be able to send out text messages that are up to 157 characters in length as we feel that is a more appropriate length.
In addition to longer text messages, we have also upgraded to a new and improved text-to-speech recording tool. The old tool, while it worked, was not the quality that we were looking for which is why we decided to ditch it. Our new and improved recording tool has improved male and female voices as well as the ability to record a message in Spanish as well as English. Please keep in mind that if you choose the "Spanish" option that the message has to be typed out in Spanish.[click to continue...]
