The California State Council is the governing body for the Knights of Columbus in the jurisdiction (state) of California. There are over 600 Councils in California with over 74,000 members. The State Deputy is the chief executive officer for the State Council.
Recently the State Council signed a contract with Yoursphere to develop a Knights of Columbus app, called Connectu, for Smartphones, iPads and Android tablets. All councils, chapters and assemblies are encouraged to sign up for the app. The app includes a standard template that is common for all councils, chapters, and assemblies. The template includes council news, council calendar, activities, insurance contact, council officers, etc.
The app was demonstrated by the Connectu vendor at the State Convention last month in Santa Clara. Many councils expressed interest in purchasing the app which is now available for you council. After your council provides Connectu the necessary information on your council they can create the app within two weeks. Your council members, family, and friends can then download the app for free.
As previously advertised councils, chapters and assemblies can purchase the Connectu app at a special introductory price of $199.00 for the first year. The offer is only valid until June 15, 2016. The cost increases to $299.00 after that date. So sign up now.
