Pierre's goals for the 2017/2018 year :
  We must increase membership numbers in order to again
      reach full district status :
•  Growth is our main concern - we need at least +3 clubs and +60 members.
•  Retain members in our clubs with interesting meetings and projects.
•  Increase the membership in small clubs to reach at least 15 active members.
•  Create new clubs.
•  Encourage former Key Club members to join Kiwanis clubs.
Present a more appealing image of each club,
      be attractive to potential new members.
Clubs should play a positive and public role in their community.
Work with other associations, service clubs, schools and civil
      services to provide more service in the community.
Each club should adopt and follow their own strategic plan.
Each division should create and distribute a divisional directory
      to maintain and reinforce links between clubs and members.

Resources available to achieve these goals :
•  Relevant training of officers and members.
•  Web site resources provided by divisions, the district and Kiwanis International.
•  Use all advertising means to promote club projects and the image of Kiwanis - your local media is a great resource - use it.
•  Attendance at divisional conference and conventions of the district and Kiwanis International.
Be proud to be a Kiwanian.  The Number 1 Kiwanian is YOU!
