Division 34, Cal Nev Ha, District, California Nevada Hawaii
Happy New Kiwanis Year! There is so much to look forward to as we move forward without the restrictions and mandates of the past year. I want to thank Mike Lui, our past Lt. Governor, for his leadership and guidance throughout this pandemic. He will remain an active leader this year as he continues to chair the strong membership team he has built.
It is now my honor to serve as the 2021-22 Lt. Governor of Division 34.With masks and social distancing we are beginning to return to “Business as Usual” as events we have been unable to participate in for over a year are returning. The NBC Safeway Second Harvest Food Drive is November 20th with all clubs participating from Divisions 34 and 12. Also returning after the Santa Cruz Mountain fires and Covid pandemic required it to be canceled for the past two years is the Camp Jones Gulch- Key Leader weekend
November 19-21. Special Games will be returning this coming May to the West Valley Campus, followed by CNH District Governor Margo Dutton’s Official Visit. Speaking of Governor Margo, her theme this year is “Together We Can” and her goals are:
15 New Clubs
10% Membership Increase
Increase diversity within the district’s clubs.
Raise $10,000 for the First Family Focus to provide grants for communities, up to $500 each.
75% of all clubs donate to the CNH or International Children’s Fund Foundation.
Support our SLP organization by finding:
a. sponsors for “orphaned clubs”,
b. improve financial and mentorship support from sponsoring Kiwanis clubs.
Develop current and future leaders thru greater education and training.
Provide greater support to clubs via club coaches, utilizing zoom and other means.
My Lt. Governor’s goals support the Governor’s goals through:
Support and participation with our Div. Membership team
Strengthen club membership and diversity, while encouraging clubs to utilize our divisions club coaches
Clubs participating and donating into the 1st Family Focus Project
Support SLP’s with greater member participation as mentors & advisors background checks & Praesidium training
More participation in educational conferences to develop club officer succession plans
Finally, I want our clubs to embrace the “Together We Can” theme and join forces because together we can do so much more!
