Arthur N. “Art” Riley


Kiwanis International trustee candidate


Club: Westminster

District: Capital


The candidate in his own words...


Why did you decide to run for office? 

Kiwanis has great potential to address the needs of children and communities in the next hundred years. As a trustee, I want to contribute my administrative and business experience to create a more effective organization that will focus on club growth, youth support, name recognition and empowerment of members.


What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?


My experience in Kiwanis, business and community organizations has prepared me to be trustee. I have acquired and demonstrated the ability to explore new ideas, build effective teams, manage challenges and establish a consensus with large teams. I enjoy working with people in planning, evaluating, organizing and implementing new ideas. 


How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis? 

My primary goal is to strengthen all segments of Kiwanis. The mark I would love to leave on Kiwanis would be that I promoted and advocated for Kiwanis and Kiwanis youth to the point that Kiwanis is recognized as the leader in growing youth into outstanding world citizens.
