For the 2017/2018 Kiwanis year, The district board has agreed to continue the
procedure started in the previous year for club secretaries to submit monthly
reports of club activities. The aim is to make the process easy for the club
secretary and to keep the collection of club progress information conformant with
the "I-Plan" that Kiwanis International wants clubs to continue to follow in the
The report is a simple Excel spread sheet that the club secretary is to fill out at
the end of each month and send (preferably by email) to the district secretary and
to your lt. governor. There is NO LONGER any requirement for the Kiwanis
International on-line monthly report to be filled out.
The district board wants to be able to measure how each club and the district as a
whole is progressing towards meeting our I-Plan goals. The report
should open as an Excel, Open Office, or Google Docs spreadsheet.
The membership total at 30 September should agree with the membership total at
1 October. If you have members resigning at the end of September they should
be removed from the September total.
At the end of each month, the club secretary fills in the column for that month
according to the activity in the club. Note that the totals are automatically
calculated. If the totals become too long for the cell, a row of ##### will appear
in the cell. At the top of the column, you can drag the width to increase it
until the number displays correctly.
The spreadsheet with the month's information is then attached to an email and sent
to the district secretary
and to the lt. governor for your club - for email addresses, see the district
At the end of the following month the next column is filled in and the updated
spreadsheet is sent again to the district secretary and to your lt. governor.
Note that the reports are only completed and returned for the 10 months of
October through July. At the district convention, a club achievement award
will be presented to each club that has sent in all 10 reports and with at
least 90% of the requested information provided. If there is any reason
that the spreadsheet cannot be filled out and emailed, a copy can be printed and
filled out by hand.
The spreadsheet can be downloaded on
the right. Save the file to your local hard drive from which you can open it
and fill it in at the end of each month.
Your contribution to this effort would be greatly appreciated. If there is
anything in the instructions or the spreadsheet that you find ambiguous or if you
have other comments, Mark Franken or
the district secretary would be
pleased to get your feedback.
