I encourage you to continue to promote the convenience of the “On-Demand” Exemplification of Charity, Unity and Fraternity, and invite all the men on your prospect list to join the Order in this way. Beginning today, when you send the invitation to prospects, please ensure you are using the new, updated PDFs linked below. We have migrated the on-demand ceremony to a new platform, which will make older invitation documents obsolete.
ONLINE EXEMPLIFICATION PROCEDURES
- Councils should forward the downloadable PDF invitation to all eligible prospects for admission and advancement (Click here for English, Spanish and French).
- Note that they will need your council number to complete the registration.
- Instruct the candidates to register for the on-demand exemplification by clicking on the “View Now” link within the PDF invitation and filling out the online form.
- Contact the candidates to guide them through the registration if needed.
- Candidates then participate in the ceremony, which starts immediately after registering.
- After the ceremony, councils must process the candidates by submitting form 100s the traditional way or electronically in Officers Online.
- This invitation is intended for new and advancing members. Existing Third and Fourth Degree members can watch the ceremony at videos.kofc.org/exemplification.
Note that candidates for admission must be approved by your council. See the temporary rules for electronic voting (click here for English, Spanish, French). Councils must file a form 100 for all candidates who complete an online exemplification.

Thank you for all that you are doing to help your council grow during this challenging time. The fact that – in the midst of a global pandemic, we have brought more men into the Order this fraternal year than we had on the same date last year – is a testament to the good work you and your council leadership teams are doing. It is also proof of the fact that – when presented with the opportunity to join this great organization, many men reply with an enthusiastic ‘yes.’ So please keep asking prospects to join. Keep promoting our limited time Free Online Membership offer valid through 8/31 using the MCGIVNEY2020 promo code. And keep inviting men to join the Order On-Demand using the invitations noted above.
