Kiwanis International Convention Tokyo Chiba 2014

Warren Mitchell

Kiwanis International vice president candidate

Club: Greeley, Colorado

District: Rocky Mountain

The candidate in his own words...

Why did you decide to run for office? 

Kiwanis is at a crossroads. At 100 years of age, our membership numbers have steadily been declining over the last two decades. This trend must be reversed, and it is my sincere belief that, while I have but one vote on the board, I can motivate the direction of Kiwanis.

What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?

Great question. Having held every office at the club level, all distinguished, and distinguished lieutenant governor, distinguished district governor, and having served on several KI committees, I took a hiatus from KI and returned to my club. I firmly believe that we, as an organization, need to give Kiwanis back to Kiwanians!!

How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis? 

Leaving “my mark on Kiwanis” will be a decision made by Kiwanians throughout the world. One person can make a difference, but the members must accept and buy into that difference. Kiwanis needs to assist the communities where they now exist and expand those communities where possible.
