2020 Council of Delegates at Large 

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many aspects of our lives, including Kiwanis activities. The District Board has been carefully monitoring the evolving conditions, including State and Federal restrictions and guidelines. Particularly, the District Board has carefully considered whether to hold this year’s annual District Convention, scheduled to take place August 21-23, 2020 in Savannah, Georgia. Many factors have been considered, but the most important factor is the health and well-being of our Kiwanis members and their families, associates and communities. 

 District bylaws provide for other methods to conduct district elections and vote on amendments and resolutions in emergency conditions such as these. At this time, based on the best information we know or anticipate, the District Board has decided to CANCEL this year’s convention and instead have a “called meeting of all persons having the status of Delegate-At-Large”. This would be made up of the current Officers, District Board, Past Lt. Governors, and Past Governors.  Lt. Governors of the 2020-21 District Board are also invited as well as any Kiwanian that is a member of the Finance or Foundation that are not included as a Delegate-at-Large.  Therefore, in accordance with the District Bylaws, we are hereby providing 60 days’ notice that the meeting of the Delegates-At-Large will take place, but in an abbreviated format as follows:

Friday, August 21st

Finance Meeting

Foundation Meeting

2019-20 Board Meeting

2020-21 Board Meeting

Past Lt. Governor’s Meeting

No Dinner

Saturday, August 22nd

House of Delegates

Installation Lunch of Officers

Adjourn.
