State Council

Every Knight belongs to a local council, and there are nearly 200 councils in Connecticut. Each council elects its own officers, and decides what activities it will engage in. Although some councils have their own KC Halls, most councils are parish-based, and meet at their local parishes. Local councils, in turn, are part of a State Council. Council elects delegates to the annual State Conventions (held in May) where State Officers are elected and delegates to represent Connecticut Knights at the annual Supreme Convention are elected.
