Amendments and resolutions

Don't just have an opinion—put it into action. As a convention delegate, you'll be a part of the discussion. Important amendments and resolutions are submitted for votes at the convention every year.

Why do delegates matter?
  • In 1962, delegates voted to expand Kiwanis beyond the United States and Canada.
  • In 1987, delegates voted to make Kiwanis-club membership available to women. 
  • In 2007, delegates passed the “flexibility amendment,” which allowed clubs to experiment with new forms of membership. 
If you plan to represent your club as a delegate in 2014, download the certificate of election of club delegates and alternates. Complete and submit it to Kiwanis International (providing copies as indicated on the form).

Your club or district may submit amendment proposals by emailing governance@kiwanis.org by October 31, 2013 for consideration at the 2014 Kiwanis International convention. Consult the FAQ sheet for more information regarding the proposal submission process.

Amendment and resolution proposals are announced no later than 90 days prior to the convention.

Be part of the future of Kiwanis!
