Pennsylvania District Kiwanis International


October 2, 2020

In this time of transition and uncertainty, the Board of Trustees for Kiwanis International and the Pennsylvania District are seeking ways to help all clubs.  We have increased our communication and have offered programs virtually utilizing technology, which previously was not offered prior to the Covid-19 pandemic.  More programs will be offered in the weeks ahead.  We had waived the new member fee through September 30, 2020 and the Pennsylvania District has set up a program called Dollars for Dues to help members pay dues who otherwise might not be able to do so because of the economic impact of Covid-19

Today, we are announcing that the Kiwanis International Board and the Pennsylvania District Board have approved a continued temporary waiver of the new member fees through December 31, 2020. That means for any new members your club brings in now through December 31stno new member fee has to be paid to Kiwanis International and the Pennsylvania District

Now is the time to bring new members in.  There are many people looking to get involved in their communities that previously had not been active.  As we move through the weeks ahead, plan a membership drive and try to attract these members to your club while they do not have to pay a new member fee.
