  1. Field Agent

A field agent has yet to be assigned to the Wayzata, Medina, Long Lake and Loretto councils. If you know someone who is a leader with self-discipline who wants to do well for others while doing well for themselves, Lloyd Cybart, General Agent, would like that person to contact him at 952-686-7720 or lloyd.cybart@kofc.org. The Field Agent position is full time, comes with training/support and has benefits.
