2019-20 Kiwanis International President Daniel Vigneron

Three words tell you a lot about Kiwanis International President-designate Daniel Vigneron and about his hopes and expectations for the 2019-20 year: Res, non verba.
The Apostle John, U.S. President Abraham Lincoln and English Parliamentarian John Pym all used variations of the phrase. In his remarks at the Closing Session of the 2019 Kiwanis International Convention in Florida this past June, Vigneron explained why he adopted the Latin adage as his personal motto.

“It means, ‘Things — or actions —not words,’” he said.

“People can talk so much without saying anything. It’s when you are part of a team, putting in the hard work, that has the visible results. That, to me, defines a good Kiwanian. Let your actions speak louder than words, and have a stronger, more positive impact on the lives of others.

“I challenge each of you to lead by example.”
