Membership interest & requirements

Aktion Club is open to any adult, age 18 years or older who has a disability and is interested in performing community service and having fun. Every Aktion Club annually elects its own officers and organizes its members into committees.

Aktion Club meetings are similar to Kiwanis meetings, are conducted once a week or every two weeks, and last about one hour. A meeting may include business discussions, informative or educational programs, entertainment, and refreshments.

Aktion Clubs draw members from various organizations that support individuals with disabilities, as well as other community programs. Aktion clubs can also be established at churches, libraries, YMCAs, lodges or similar facilities. A Kiwanis club, composed of like-minded, service-oriented people from the community, serves as the club’s sponsor. Aktion Club is supported at the district level and by the Kiwanis International office in Indianapolis, Indiana, which provides programs, literature and opportunities to relate to individuals with disabilities from countries worldwide.

Member dues are $8 per member each year, beginning in the 2014-15 year. To find out more information on Aktion Club fees or to become a member of Aktion Club, contact your local Kiwanis club or use our Club Locator to locate your nearest Kiwanis club.
