Club leaders

Club members nominate and elect the club officers and board members who have the talent and determination to guide the club through the year.

A club's board of directors is composed of elected directors and club officers. Most of the business of the club is handled by the board of directors. The board determines the policies and activities of the club, approves the budget and bills to be paid, gives counsel to committees and handles general management of the club.

Each officer position has a set of responsibilities and resources to guide them. Kiwanis International requires club presidents and secretaries complete Club Leadership Education to ensure that club officers are armed with the tools they need to succeed.

This leadership guide contains useful information for a variety of division and club leaders. Every Kiwanis club secretary, president and lieutenant governor receives a copy. If other club leaders could use the information in this guide, please feel free to share.
