OUR LEADERSHIP

Kiwanis International is led by the Kiwanis International Board of Trustees. Trustees come from around the world and are elected at the annual Kiwanis International convention. Board members represent Kiwanis clubs, giving them a voice in the operation of the organization. Board members establish and implement the long-range plans for the organization, in addition to counseling leaders in Kiwanis districts and Service Leadership Programs.

The Board of Trustees is chaired by the Kiwanis International president, who is elected by delegates at the annual Kiwanis International convention. The president presides over all meetings of the Kiwanis International board, executive committee and Kiwanis International council. The president is Kiwanis International’s primary ambassador.
