District: Philippine South District
The candidate in his own words...
Why did you decide to run for office?
We, in the field, know what needs to be done if we want Kiwanis to attain its goals. Membership growth and new club building have been the clarion call for all Kiwanians. We need to accelerate our pace by fine-tuning our policies. I believe I can help.
What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?
I am experienced in litigation where I use critical thinking. This aptitude makes me a good addition to the board, where new ideas can bring about positive changes. This, coupled with a vision for Kiwanis growth, are essential qualities that could enhance our success at shaping new directions for Kiwanis.
How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis?
I would like to be remembered as a trustee who worked for a common aspiration of building a better Kiwanis. I would like my predecessors and contemporaries to appreciate me as a co-believer and doer of positive changes.
I am married to Eugenia, with whom I have three future Kiwanians: Klarence, Klarisse and Klarina. I joined Kiwanis in 1988–89, became club president in 1994–95, lieutenant governor in 2001–02 and governor in 2011–12. Kiwanis has always been a part of my life, and it was reinvigorated when Eugenia became a Kiwanian.
