An Inter-club meeting is one where your club members attend a regular meeting or official Kiwanis event of another Kiwanis Club, Circle K Club, Key Club, Aktion Club, Builders Club or K-Kids. This includes virtual club meetings. If a Kiwanis member, and the Kiwanis Advisor (advisor must also be a Kiwanis member), or two Kiwanis members, visit one of the Kiwanis Club’s SLPs, that counts as an inter-club no matter the club size. An Inter-club also includes any Club Installation, Division Meeting, District Conference/Convention, or International Convention. If 2 club members attend the Governors Visit in Bermuda, this will also count as an inter-club no matter the club size. Excluded are any events whereby there is not a specific Host club (ex. cruises unless the sitting Governor expressly appoints a Host club for the trip).
For clubs with a membership of twenty (20) or fewer members, a minimum of two (2) members in attendance will be required to constitute an Inter-club meeting.
For clubs with a membership of twenty-one (21) to thirty (30) members, a minimum of three (3) members in attendance will be required to constitute an Inter-club meeting.
For clubs with a membership of thirty-one (31) or more members, a minimum of four (4) members in attendance will be required to constitute an Inter-club meeting.
All Inter-clubs MUST be reported on the online monthly report. Reports must contain the date of the Inter-club, # of club members attending (Oct 1st will be used to determine of actual club members), and what club(s) was (were) visited. Please add the NEDK Inter-club Chair’s email address to the distribution list for your monthly report: [email protected].
Clubs MAY NOT use the Division Lt. Governor, or a Past LTG as a “wild card” to complete an Inter-club (a lieutenant governor can only be included if he/she is a member of the participating club).
The Host club for any meeting does not get credit for an Inter-club.
