Strategic planning for clubs (I-Plan). read hereFor the club board of directors.  Think of a strategic plan as your club’s road map :  You can choose the roads you want to take, but the strategic plan ensures you reach your destination - your goals.  Every club should create their own strategic plan.  Our strategic plan is commonly called the I-Plan because the priority areas begin with an "I" :  inspiration, impact, image and investment.  Kiwanis International has created a "Club Planning Tool" to make your planning easier.  Read or download the Club Planning Tool here.
Club and member achievement awards & criteria The old District Achievement Award trophy for clubs was discontinued after the 2007/2008 Kiwanis year.
A new Club Achievement Award with simplfied criteria was started for the 2015/2016 Kiwanis year but there was no trophy and there was little uptake.  For the 2016/2017 Kiwanis year and subsequently, a banner patch was awarded for clubs that submitted their monthly report spreadsheets - see Club monthly report.
Kiwanis International used to recognize "Distinguished Clubs" and "Distinguished officers" that met certain criteria which changed from year to year but in the April 2015 "Kiwanis Dateline" it was announced that these awards have been indefinitely suspended.  Starting with the 2016/2017 year, Kiwanis International have introduced a "recognition program for Kiwanis International members, clubs and districts".  This is somewhat laborious and is based on the completion of the Kiwanis International on-line monthly reporting (which is optional for our district).  The criteria have not been published on the Kiwanis International web site but if any clubs are interested in these recognitions, information is available from the District Webmaster (David Fentress).
