    After login and in your Profile - you can select/see "Groups" which are essentially Committees or activities you can select in your Member info.

    View Profile

    Why would I select one or more of these?  You can select one (or more) of these groups that you have supported or would like to support in the future.

    How does this help our Council?  With a database driven website - we can search for all Brothers who have supported the "Pancake Breakfast" or who might like to. Thus, we can save searches and quickly reach out to Brothers who have associated themselves with a group(s) via phone, email, etc. need arises.

    Is there a limit?  You can select them all if you wish, none if you wish, or anything in between.

    Our Council supports several groups and you can see them here:


    As we gather more information from our Ladies, etc. - there will be more details for each of the six groups currently listed.

    When I look at my Profile and/or edit my Contact info - there is another list of Groups.  What are these for?  Essentially, in one word or less "Committees" - please see the Committee tidbit for details.
