Greetings PA DeMolay! Dad “Pants” here. For those of you who don’t already know why an advisor from south of the Mason-Dixon is directing the Key Man Conference, I’ll give you a quick intro.
I’m originally from Erie Chapter and was active with PA DeMolay in the early 2000s. Since then, I’ve moved around a bit, but I’ve been serving as the Assistant Director of Convention in PA since 2009. In the meantime, I’ve also found a home at Edwin Albert Mroz Chapter in Falls Church, VA.
You may have already noticed the update to the Key Man page on this website. This year, “Dad” Dan Loughin and I are leading the charge toward a new concept for the conference: Key Man University, or KMU for short. Key Man University is all about giving you total control over your DeMolay learning experience.
Within the major program, you’ll find plenty of opportunity for customization. Say you’re a Senior Councilor looking to use your term as Master Councilor to work on your Chapter’s degree conferral. You can take the Event and Program Planning major, merge it with classes from Ritual and Public Speaking, and assemble a great conferral from introductions to refreshments.
I’m very excited to work with an all-star faculty to bring Key Man University to PA DeMolay. Registration and major selection are on a first-come, first-served basis. Will I see you there?
