HOLDING CLUB ELECTIONS

The Kiwanis International Bylaws require that clubs hold annual meetings and the election of 2020-21 officers by May 15. If your club was planning to hold elections soon, you can postpone that meeting to see if restrictions ease by the deadline, or you can follow these guidelines to conduct elections through an online voting website or app.
