PA Kiwanis Membership Growth
Growing Existing Kiwanis Clubs
Pennsylvania Kiwanis has a District Membership Committee with members that are ready to help your Kiwanis club grow! We want to continue to make Kiwanis history. With your help, we can make this happen. If you would like some “tips and tricks” on how to grow your club, contact Membership Chair Matt Wise.
Opening New Kiwanis Clubs
You may wonder, “why do I need to put a new club in the neighboring city? They can join my club.”
You are correct. But people have different schedules — another Kiwanis Club meeting at a different time in the nearby community may attract a different type of person. It not only helps the children next door, it can energize your club and empower your members to grow your club in service and members. It is an amazing domino effect.
There may be a need in a new community and sharing Kiwanis with them would only lead to new opportunities for the children in that new community. Imagine the possibilities for these kids! #KIdsNeedKiwanis
Participating in Growing and Opening Clubs
Think about this: Committed volunteers have the ability to get others to participate. Participation does not require jumping into the pond with reckless abandon. Members should not be bullied into giving more of themselves than they believe they can handle. They should simply be encouraged to get their feet wet. After completing a small task, a member discovers the joy of truly being a part of it all. Then they want to invite their friends and family to participate on a project. That is why it is very important to keep new members active so that they bring this positive energy to service projects and they bring more hands of service with them.
