Jander Gary 

Gary Jander of San Diego, California, U.S., was elected to a three-year term as a trustee of Kiwanis International during the 2022 Kiwanis International Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana, June 8-11. He will serve as a trustee for the United States and Pacific Canada regions of Kiwanis.

A member of Kiwanis for 22 years, Jander is currently the immediate past president of the Kiwanis Youth Development and Support Club of San Diego. He also served as club president last year and in the 2005-06 Kiwanis year. In addition, he has served as a distinguished governor and as lieutenant governor of the California-Nevada-Hawaii District.

As a supporter of the Kiwanis Children’s Fund, Jander has twice received the Walter Zeller Fellowship. He is also the president of the California-Nevada-Hawaii Kiwanis Children’s Fund.  

The owner of a nationally ranked law firm and a California probate attorney, Jander is founder and president-emeritus of Probate Attorneys of San Diego. With Kiwanis, he strives to fulfill his belief that Kiwanis International needs people who have proven leadership skills to volunteer for leadership positions. He has formed new clubs, served as an informal club coach for the past 10 years and participated in various Kiwanis International membership programs, including The Formula.

Jander values collaboration and servant leadership. Trained in organizational compliance and governance, he hopes to work with Kiwanis International trustees and engage in civil discussions about the best ways to help Kiwanis adapt to a changing world in order to better serve children — and to focus on the idea of serving one world with one mission.  

Jander has two children with his wife, Donna, who is a member and immediate past president of the Kiwanis Youth Development and Support Club of San Diego. She is also a former district administrator for Key Leader.
