  • Kiwanis family teams up with Nickelodeon

    Key Clubs, Builders Clubs and K-Kids across the globe are teaming up with Nickelodeon to get out and play. On September 24, 2011, the Kiwanis family will join thousands of other organizations in the Nickelodeon's 8th Annual Worldwide Day of Play. For three hours, all of Nick's networks and Web sites go black in an effort to encourage children to get out and play. As you plan your calendars for next year, please save this date and begin thinking about how your club can participate. For now, you can register your club and access many more resources to help with your events. Be on the lookout for a postcard in the mail in the next few weeks and share the news with your club. Questions? Contact Elizabeth Warren at 800-549-2647 or via email.

  • Leadership Lessons

    Hear that? That’s your call to lead. But don’t worry if you’re new to Kiwanis leadership or if your skills need brushing up. After these free Tuesday night webinars, you’ll have everything you need to proceed and succeed.

    Commitment can change the world (August 2): Members who stay true to their Kiwanis commitment help themselves, their club, their community and the world. Budding leaders, renew your promise and you’ll leave convinced, “If it is to be, it’s up to me."

    Help wanted! (August 9): Put more of your passion and skills to work for Kiwanis in leadership positions at the club, district, national and international levels. Find out about openings in leadership, growth, education, service and marketing.

    Developing a Kiwanis calendar (August 16): Leading a club is a big job, but that's where a Kiwanis calendar can help. Create a strategic plan and capture it in a calendar to follow throughout the year, keeping you on track day-by-day to meet your goals.

    Invest in leadership (August 23): The key to help clubs to move from good to great is the club’s ability to generate its own quality leaders. Learn how to invest in leadership skills—especially your own—and your club will go from “great” to “excellent.”

    All webinars start at 8 p.m. Eastern time. To sign up for these sessions plus topics like the ABCS of growth on July 26 and What did I miss at ICON on September 27, register now at www.kiwanisone.org/webinars. Webinars also are archived online to watch later.

  • Kiwanis magazine's June edition is now online

    The sun never sets on the Kiwanis family. With clubs in more than 80 countries, members of CKI and Key Club are serving 24-7-365. In June, Kiwanis magazine goes global with stories about how the Kiwanis family reaches beyond their own country’s borders—and beyond their comfort zones—to make an international difference. Their efforts:

    Provide clean drinking water and new shoes—An Arizona couple’s leap of faith to fund a new well grows to include building a new school and help for entire Cambodian village, page 15, and an Illinois Key Club collects gently-used shoes for a local Kiwanian’s foundation that helps children in Tanzania, page 24.

    Rebuild structures and their clubs—The resurgent College of the Bahamas CKI club resurrects an unfulfilled Key Club dream to rebuild the chapel at an HIV/AIDS camp on Kiwanis One Day, page 28, and Key Club members from Bradenton, Florida, tackle a major home fix-up, Extreme Home “Keyover”-style, page 32.

    Save kids from IDD—As The Eliminate Project kicks off, take a look back at how Kiwanis’ first global service project, eliminating iodine-deficiency disorders, is faring after US$100 million and nearly 17 years of effort from Kiwanis family members like you, page 34.

    We also invite you to take an active role in your Kiwanis magazine: 

    You’ll find the June edition as well as archived issues at www.kiwanismagazine.org.

  • Check out the new Builders Club online

    A new Builders Club website has launched at www.buildersclub.org, just in time to give members, advisors and parents an introduction before summer vacation. Buildersclub.org continues the layout strategy that Key Club started last June. The overall design theme has not changed, but the navigation, home page and content were overhauled. This format has already launched with Key Club, Key Leader and Aktion Club and is receiving positive feedback from all users.

    Check it out and send us your feedback at buildersclub@kiwanis.org.
