Program Directors and Chairmen

The State Program Director and his team of Directors and Chairmen are responsible for the many and varied programs available for the membership and community-at-large to participate in throughout the fraternal year.

The State Program Director and his team of Directors and Chairmen are appointed by the State Deputy and report to the State Program Director. They usually serve a two-year term.

They are responsible to tabulate points and present awards for various individuals, families, and activities, and to submit the apprpriate names to Supreme for the available Supreme awards.

It is also their combined efforts that make the Order visible to the larger community and one of the reasons the Knights of Columbus are known as the "strong arm of the Church".
