Kiwanis International Training for Incoming Club Leaders

We want to make sure you’re set up for success from the start. Kiwanis International will offer virtual Club Leadership Education as a supplement to your district’s CLE training. You are welcome to attend live via Zoom or watch the recording on demand. The sessions will provide foundational training for each position, cover role expectations and the resources available. There will be a few moments at the end to answer any questions. 

New to 2023, KI will host both Kiwanis 101 and Kiwanis 201 training. Kiwanis 101 is for those who are brand new to their club role and covers the entire positional PowerPoint slide deck. Kiwanis 201 is for officers who attended officer training for their role last year. This shortened version of the training provides a refresher and any new information for your role. Club officers are welcome to attend both if they desire. You should set aside 75-90 minutes for the live session (Kiwanis 101) and 60 minutes for the Kiwanis 201 level.

All training is held on Zoom at 7 p.m. CT (8 p.m. ET/6 p.m. MT/5 p.m. PT)

How will I receive my CLE credits?
After the virtual training is complete, we will ask you to complete a brief attendance survey. All attendees who complete the survey will receive credit for attending CLE training. We ask that districts continue to track attendance for all district-led CLE training on the education tracker.
