When we say that we want to, “KICK it up a notch,” we’re talking about our upcoming Kiwanis Internet Convention Kickstart. These last two Kiwanis years have been trying for everyone. Social distancing, masks, slow downs and shut downs have affected all of us. Still, the young people of our communities need us, and in many cases that need is greater than ever.
Kiwanians the world over have been stepping up to the plate and finding new ways to do what we do best: Serve the Children of the World. That’s why we will be holding an on-line, virtual, Internet convention. Like always we want to share best practices, learn new skills, hear from our District leadership and vote for the next generation of that leadership.
We know that a real strength of our district conventions is having an opportunity to renew old friendships and make new ones. We know, too, that this will be curtailed due to the virtual nature of our convention. That said, Kiwanians have always been “half-full” volunteers. We excel at making lemonade out of lemons. Every Kiwanian in our District will be able to take part in this year’s convention. Every club in our District will be able to choose delegates to vote for the candidates of their choice in our House of Delegates. It has never been this easy to get involved and make a real difference.
Check out our workshops, candidate bios and schedule of events. Sign up today for what we know will be a convention we will not soon forget.
Together we will improve the world one child and one community at a time.
Let's KICK it up a Notch!
Join me, Governor Dr. Delores Lewis, as we embark on the second half of our Kiwanis year. Let's all pull together, increase our efforts and KICK it up a notch.
Our Kiwanis Internet Convention Kickstart is going to be a huge success. Not only will we be electing our next District Vice-Governor, we'll be electing our next Kiwanis International Trustee. Join me as we take part in a convention to remember.
Have We Got Workshops for YOU!
Last year saw the cancellation of our face-to-face convention and with it, the cancellation of our workshops. We know that Kiwanians have consistently said how much they look forward to attending workshops and forums; how much they like to further develop their Kiwanis skills.
This year we are pleased to offer a number of workshops in both French and in English. Please check them out and register early. Space is limited and we don't want to leave anyone out in the cold (especially now that winter has gripped us in Canada). I'm Vice Governor, Jim Scott and I look forward to seeing all of you at our virtual, Kiwanis Kickstart Convention.
Hi. I'm Edwin Thompson, District Convention Committee Chair, and I'd like to personally thank you for stopping by and checking out our convention website.
All of us were looking forward to getting together for a face-to-face convention, but the Coronavirus put an end to that for this year. We are excited at the prospects of including all of the clubs in our vast District. Large and small will all have the opportunity to participate, share the fellowship and elect our Kiwanis leaders. Welcome to our Kickstart convention.
Registration is now open!
