Create Your Kiwanis Club Logo
If you don’t have your Kiwanis club logo, Kiwanis International can create it for free from here:
GROW YOUR MEMBERSHIP AND EARN REWARDS
Clubs that report the names and contact information for this month’s prospects will be entered into the next monthly drawing for a US$200 gift card to the Kiwanis Family Store. The drawing is held on the 20th of each month. Complete the form, and good luck!
“Two For Two” Membership Initiatives
Membership growth is not a one-time campaign or event. It’s a continuous club operation to help more kids in the community who need us. This is a perfect time to start using a new resource to grow your club’s membership and make membership growth part of club operations. It’s called “Two For Two.”
The premise is simple and easy to implement. Two members meet with two prospects every month to discuss Kiwanis and the club’s impact on the community. The meeting can be anywhere, such as a coffee shop, library, community center or place of business.
Contact your Lt. Governor or Indiana District to learn how to host a Membership Boost event.
