Divide up the Assembly into Council areas..
Assembly by Council area Each area is small enough to manage Each area enjoys Council support.. Each area enjoys Parish support. Each area is the Local Community of that Council
Team Captains One person in charge per area.. He solicits a few helpers.. He approaches the Council for an Ad and any member support that he can muster.. He approaches the Parish office for an Ad.. He works with his helpers and covers his area. He leverages his connections and his Brother Knights support to get the maximum sales for his area
Sales outside of your area are OK. Notify that Team Captain of your intentions.. Approach: Funeral Homes, Flower Shops, Catholic Businesses, Places you shop at.. Friends that are self employed.. Successful people you may know.. Approach larger businesses early & often.. Look in your Church Bulletin for leads. Look in previous Souvenir books for leads
Goals.. An area should easily be able to generate $1000 to $2000 in sales.. Less is OK. but more is always better
