Supreme Website:

The general website for the Knights of Columbus as you know is www.kofc.org.  In the "Officers Online" you can see the Supreme list for your Council or Assembly (in Excel or PDF format... you should download or print a copy of your roster in January and July to help with your audit).  In 2009 "Member Management" was introduced allowing to add phone number, e-mail address, spouse and other information to the member's record.  This allows you to access one central database that's simple to pass on to new officers.  Once updated you can generate phone listing (for your Call Tree) or to pass to the Fraternal Benefits Advisor.  You can produce birthday and Anniversary listings, etc. You can also generate invoices, print membership cards (using the new stock #) plus many other useful tools to keep your membership information up to date.  This is open the Grand Knights and Financial Secretaries for Councils and Faithful Navigators and Faithful Comptroller for Assemblies.

To get your Invitation Code to gain access: Member Management contact Supreme Customer Service at 1-800-380-9995 between the hours of 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM (Eastern time).  Have your membership number available.

Customer Service can also assist officers who have forgotten their username and/or password.
