John Brown

Kiwanis International trustee candidate

Club: Tooele (Utah)

District: Utah-Idaho

The candidate in his own words...

Why did you decide to run for office? 

To give a voice to the smaller districts of the Kiwanis Family; to encourage and foster better communication between Kiwanis districts and the Kiwanis International Board; to encourage Kiwanians to run for district and Kiwanis International offices by showing that it is what is in your heart and actions that count.

What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?

My life has been spent working with people with differing needs and opinions. I have been able to help them work together to solve their problems. I will bring my problem-solving ability to the Kiwanis International Board. I understand that it is Kiwanis members who make our organization strong.

How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis? 

My term in office will lead to a better working relationship among the Kiwanis International Board and districts through improved communication. I will work to increase diversity within our Kiwanis membership, in all areas. Membership will be increased because of improved club member retention and new member recruitment.
