Benefits of Membership

Kiwanis offers an opportunity for personal involvement in the leadership and improvement of the community, the nation, and world.  While service is what Kiwanians are known for, their club offers much more.  Meetings and projects provide fellowship that is sincere and lasting.  New members quickly learn that the benefits of membership increase with their level of participation in their club.  They find the "Kiwanis Connection" to be an excellent fit in their personal and professional lives.

Membership in a Kiwanis club connects a person with the community and other individuals he or she wouldn't otherwise know.  Club members learn about developments and happenings in their community during their regular club gatherings.  They also enjoy new social and business networking opportunities with the wide variety of members in their club.  And, together, they combine their interests and skills to improve their community in ways that make a real impact in the lives of others, particularly children.

• Enhancing the quality of life in the community
