Moving Kiwanis Forward

I am proud mem­ber of Kiwa­nis, the great­est ser­vice orga­ni­za­tion in the world. Kiwa­nis has pro­vid­ed me the oppor­tu­ni­ty to serve my com­mu­ni­ty, my Dis­trict and Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al. I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to open new clubs and strength­en Kiwa­nis.

I am a long-time believ­er in grow­ing our orga­ni­za­tion. I have served as our District’s Cam­paign for Growth Chair, our For­mu­la Chair, the Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al Mem­ber­ship Com­mit­tee Chair, and now I am serv­ing as the Eye of the Tiger Chair for North Amer­i­ca. All of us can be proud that our 5-year Formula/Eye of the Tiger ini­tia­tive end­ed with pos­i­tive growth and more new clubs opened than in decades before. More Kiwa­ni­ans mean more Kiwa­nis ser­vice.

It is impor­tant that our lead­er­ship does more than “talk the talk”. We must “walk the walk” and lead by exam­ple; hold­ing our­selves account­able to ensure suc­cess. To that end we must be vig­i­lant in our quest for inclu­sive­ness. When look­ing for new Kiwa­ni­ans we look for pas­sion­ate, car­ing peo­ple with big Kiwa­nis Hearts. We look for those who tru­ly want to improve the world one child and one com­mu­ni­ty at a time. We must strive to make them feel wel­comed and includ­ed with all that we do. Our Kiwa­nis clubs should reflect the com­mu­ni­ties that they serve and proud­ly wel­come all of those who are will­ing and able to help out.

I look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing to work with enthu­si­as­tic Kiwa­ni­ans as we open more clubs and invite more peo­ple to our ever-grow­ing Kiwa­nis fam­i­ly.

I pledge to con­tin­ue to work dili­gent­ly on your behalf as we strive to improve the world, one com­mu­ni­ty and one child at a time.

Thank you.
