Meet the Kiwanis International Board

Each Kiwanis club has a voice at the organization’s international level: the Kiwanis International Board of Trustees. Kiwanis International officers and trustees are elected by clubs at the annual international convention. Among the board’s responsibilities:

  • Establish and implement long-range plans for the organization.
  • Direct the development of Kiwanis programs, from membership growth to service initiatives.
  • Counsel Kiwanis districts, Key Club International and Circle K International boards.

The Kiwanis International president presides at the Kiwanis International convention and over all meetings of the Kiwanis International board, executive committee and international council. As Kiwanis International’s primary ambassador, the Kiwanis International president visits districts and regions worldwide.
