Virtual Workshop Series

The Leadership Development & Education Committee is coordinating weekly virtual workshops so you can participate in free Kiwanis learning from home!

All sessions will be held via Zoom. Login instructions will be sent via email several days prior to the workshops. 

As an event held by the District, these do count for inter-club credit. To learn more about inter-clubs, click here. Please observe the following rule:
“Kiwanis Clubs with 20 or fewer members need a minimum of two members in attendance to constitute an inter-club meeting, clubs with 21-30 members need three members, and clubs with 31 or more members need at least four members in attendance.”

Not all workshops in our series will be recorded, but those that are will be posted on our YouTube channel and Facebook page.

Please take advantage of these FREE learning opportunities.
