The 2021-22 Kiwanis year is quickly approaching, and Kiwanis is ready to welcome back all Kiwanis family clubs that were unable to meet last year due to the pandemic. Aktion Club district administrators are invited to join Kiwanis staff for a welcome back to Kiwanis ‘Homecoming’ webinar and learn strategies to re-engaging clubs lost in recent years due to Covid-19 and other reasons.
The “Homecoming Campaign” offers easy to access tools administrators can use to contact and welcome clubs back to a year of amazing service.
Register in advance for one of the following webinars. After registering, you’ll receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. If you’re unable to attend, the recorded webinar will be posted here after the event.
