One of the greatest services Kiwanis members can provide is to help open a new club. Your club already provides much-needed resources to the local community. Imagine expanding your club’s—and Kiwanis’—positive influence even more.
Kiwanis International offers a number of resources to make opening a new club simple.
- Start with the Quick-start guide, an outline of the seven steps to opening a new club and a two-month planning calendar.
- Follow the seven steps to opening a club in detail.
- For chartering information for Aktion Club, Circle K, Key Club, Builder’s Club or K-Kids, please check out the Service Leadership Programs chartering toolkit.
- Contact the Kiwanis help line. Kiwanis International Member Services staff can assist you with questions, provide resources and take orders for Kiwanis Family Store merchandise. To speak with a new-club-processing representative, call Member Services at 800-KIWANIS, ext. 411, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
