2013 Achieving Club Excellence Workshops

Why your club should attend an Achieving Club Excellence workshop
Start changing the world in your own community by improving your own Kiwanis club.  Lead the way to a larger, more vibrant club that is providing significant service to children.  Help your current and future members connect to the Kiwanis purpose and mission to change the world one child and one community at a time.  All club members are welcome to attend the ACE. 

 The Achieving Club Excellence workshop presents a dynamic seven-step process that clubs can follow to remain viable in today’s culture.  In this 3-hour workshop, club members learn how to explore new approaches to increase service and apply new strategies for membership growth.  Club members will focus on how to enhance the membership experience for all club members and how to develop and maintain a relevant service impact in their community.

Clubs will benefit from attending this workshop by:

  • Engaging all club members in the club improvement process,
  • Assessing club projects and activities to determine what the clubs needs to
    • Keep doing
    • Start doing, and
    • Stop doing
  • Add value to the individual member’s experience in Kiwanis,
  • Increase the service impact in the club’s community, and
  • Create public awareness of the Kiwanis club presence and mission.

Children in your own community and around the world need Kiwanis.  There are people in your community who have the desire to help.  Following this simple process will bring them together.

You can make the difference!  All sessions will be held 9 a.m. – 12 Noon unless otherwise noted:
