The 2019 State Convention is being welcomed back to the capitol city of the state- Des Moines. From May 3-5, over 500 brother Knights and the families will descend on the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for three days of spiritual growth, fraternal rejuvenation, and quality training and support.
The State Convention encompasses a number of special events, including an exemplification of the Patriotic Degree, the Annual Meeting of the Fourth Degree District, the presentation of the 2019 Individual merit and council awards, and the annual meeting of the Iowa State Council.
There are many activities for the wives and kids to keep them quite busy throughout the weekend. All events are very affordable in an effort to have as many of our KofC families with young kids able to join in our celebration.
We hope you discover the excitement that is the State Convention, and look forward to seeing you in Des Moines May 3-5, 2019!
