And Now I’m a Council’s Advocate

At last night’s business meeting I was elected to the office of Advocate for my new council’s 2018-2019 fraternal term.

The duties and responsibilities of the Advocate of a Knights of Columbus Council are summarized as:

Advocate

  • Acts as parliamentarian for the council
  • Should have a working knowledge of Robert’s
    Rules of Order, Charter, Constitution & Laws,
    council by-laws, and Method of Conducting
    Council Meetings (#10318)
  • When needed, will seek legal assistance from
    the state advocate

Having previously served as the Grand Knight of another Council, I’m already familiar with the Office of Advocate and I’m looking forward to this upcoming term.
