We hope to gather in Salt Lake City, Utah, in June 2021. If attending in person isn’t possible, a virtual registration option for the 2021 Kiwanis International Convention will be available.  

That option will allow members to attend online sessions of the Kiwanis Education Conference on Thursday, June 24, and Friday, June 25. To vote, however, delegates must attend the House of Delegates in person on Saturday, June 26. Prices for the registration options are still being considered.

In a special meeting on Thursday, November 19, the Kiwanis International Board reviewed the provisions in the organization’s bylaws regarding voting. The bylaws require members to vote in person on any proposed bylaw amendments and for the election of trustees and officers. (Article XV)  

If the board declares in April that emergency conditions continue, the board has the authority, per Kiwanis International bylaws, to reduce the size of a quorum needed to conduct business or cancel the House of Delegates. If the House of Delegates is canceled, a meeting of the Kiwanis International Council would be called to conduct the business of the organization (as happened in July 2020).

To guide our decisions, we are paying close attention to the coronavirus outbreak. We closely monitor the CDC and WHO updates on COVID-19; as of now, we are proceeding as if events will take place as scheduled. Changes to events or meetings will be made based on future developments. In the event that we would cancel the 2021 Kiwanis International Convention, all convention registration fees will be refunded for all attendees.
