Welcome aboard to 2013-2014 management team.
This year, Kiwanis International has a new strategic plan. One of the most important goals is our 5-year plan to grow Kiwanis. In my vision, I see Kiwanis expanding around the world by developing programs that attract and retain new members. I challenge each club to grow by a minimum of one person. Just think, with more hearts and hands, we can do more for the children of the world.
The Kiwanis International President also proposed a common fundraising project, that is each district or nation to collect at least 50 pieces of paintings or drawings to be sold at next year convention in Tokyo-Chiba in order to raise fund for The Eliminate Project. In 2015, Kiwanis International will celebrate its 100th Anniversary, 100 years of service and fellowship. It’s something that makes us proud and excited. Let’s commit to grow together.
In line with the Kiwanis International theme, “We Build Bridges for Children to the Future”, these bridges will lead us to the next century of Kiwanis and to the next century of Kiwanis members. Please join me in building these bridges and growing the Kiwanis family to benefit the children that we serve.
Yours in Kiwanis,
Governor Simpson Tan
