Registration & Tickets

More than ever, leadership matters. That’s why the 2020 Kiwanis International Convention will include multiple tracks for leadership training. In fact, you can tailor your convention experience to your own interests. Check out your options — from the education-only option to the full convention experience. Find what works for you. Then join us in Indianapolis! 

Did you know clubs can pay all or a portion of each member's expenses for the Kiwanis Education Conference — part of the Kiwanis International convention — from its service account? The Kiwanis Education Conference qualifies as an acceptable educational expense of the club.  Covered expenses can include: Registration fees up to US$299, hotel, airfare or mileage, meals, per diem and other expenses as determined by the club.

The increased educational tracks offered at the 2020 Kiwanis International Convention meet the requirements of educational expenses allowed to be deducted from a club’s service account. If a club chooses, a fair practice could be to provide two-thirds of any reimbursement from the community service account and one-third from the administrative account for a member attending all three days.

Expenses related to a member attending only the Kiwanis Annual Meeting would not qualify for any reimbursement from the community service account by Kiwanis standards. Clubs may continue to cover any portion of members’ convention expenses from their administrative account.

All prices in U.S. dollars. Under 18 years of age: Free admission to general sessions, education tracks and the Kiwanis World Showcase. Contact [email protected] for more details about other events.
