Knowing that contributions of leaders are respected and appreciated can help motivate future leaders to step up.
- Thank volunteers in a timely and appropriate manner. Add value to the membership experience and reward involvement.
- Give potential leaders an incentive to accept leadership roles in the future. Publicly thank those who worked behind the scenes to put an event together.
- Budget to cover the travel expenses involved in attending Kiwanis district and international conferences and conventions. For many, this experience is valuable and appreciated.
- Honor an outgoing leader with Life Member status or as a Hixson Fellow.
