A Kiwanis commitment is built on your desire and willingness to serve your community. It is renewed because of the gratification you will find in serving others.
Membership: A Kiwanis club is organized around a core membership of selected service-minded men and women who reflect the community profile. Prospective members are invited to join by exisiting members. Membership information is then reviewed and approved by the club's board of directors.
Time: Kiwanis clubs are asked to meet weekly or twice a month at a convenient time and place as desired by the club's members. Kiwanians, on average, will invest about six hours a month by participating in club meetings, club projects, and volunteering in their community. There is no attendance requirement, but active participation is encouraged.
Monetary: Beyond an initial membership induction fee, members contribute annual dues as determined by the club to finance the administrative duties of the club and provide for its commitments to the district and Kiwanis International. All monies needed to accomplish a project are raised through fund raising. Members pay for their meal at meetings, if one is served.
