The Kiwanis International convention in Japan may be months away, but it’s important to include a line for the trip in your club’s budget so your club has a voice.
As required by the Kiwanis International Bylaws, the funds for sending club delegates to the convention will come from your club’s administrative budget. Consider including enough funds for two club delegates to register, travel to Japan, attend ticketed events, stay in the convention hotel and purchase meals.
The budgeting template in the treasurer’s section of the Leadership Guide is a great place to start. Check out the convention website for resources and don’t forget to submit the certificate for election of club delegates and alternates. Once you take care of these important details, you can look forward to the warm hospitality of our Japanese hosts and to discovering the spirit of this ancient culture steeped in modernism.
