Another day has come and gone in Geneva for the thousands of members assembled for international convention.
Today members began to filter into the convention center at 9:00 am for district caucusing and workshops; however, the big news of the day came as the delegates assembled for the business session. As no amendments were moved, business immediately turned to the elections, where Alan Penn of Medina, Ohio, was elected Kiwanis International president for the 2011-12 Kiwanis year. Tom DeJulio of Bronxville, New York, was elected to succeed him as the Kiwanis International president-elect, and Gunter Gasser of Spittal and der Drau, Austria, was elected vice-president.
Jane Erickson, Stephen Hill and Warren Mitchell were also elected each to 3-year terms as Kiwanis International trustees. Tomorrow the winner of the contested at-large trustee seat will be announced. Stay tuned!
