Arthur Riley for vice president

Arthur Riley, RileyWestminster, Maryland
Kiwanis Club Westminster and Centennial eKiwanis Club
Capital District

Biography:
From a Kiwanis family, I have assumed extensive Kiwanis responsibilities as well as being involved in various community activities. Professionally, I am a pharmacist who believes in service. Vickie and I are leaders within our church. We celebrated 45 years of marriage and have three children and three grandchildren.

Why did you decide to run for office?
My love for Kiwanis and Kiwanians motivates my candidacy. Additionally, during visits to Kiwanis districts worldwide, I have witnessed the needs of Kiwanis clubs and districts, and the need to act immediately to insure Kiwanis relevance. I have the time, desire and family support to fulfill the presidential responsibilities. 

What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?
The members must evaluate candidate qualifications. I believe my experience, commitment and dedication qualify me. My extensive experience in Kiwanis is proof of my commitment to Kiwanis members. My community involvement has taught me how to interact with people. My profession has instilled a continual spirit of service.

How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis?
My mark is only significant if Kiwanis succeeds as a worldwide advocate for children. Kiwanis’ unique position can enable us, together, to sponsor children’s educational, medical and security needs. My support of expanded club service, inclusive and welcoming membership, and the development of future leaders will be the Kiwanis legacy.
