Morning Growth Team Messages
7/6/09 -- "Clubs, Train Your Leaders" Weak clubs tend to lose members. Strong clubs tend to gain members. That’s the simple truth, which this Monday Morning Message discusses. How do we make clubs stronger? Jack White is offering five suggestions in monthly MMM messages. This one is his favorite, better training for Presidents-Elect.
7/13/09 -- "We Can Grow With Service" Stan Storey came very close to getting in line to become President of Kiwanis International in 2011. However, in an election held at the KI Convention in Nashville, this 36-year Florida Kiwanian finished second among three candidates. Rather than bemoaning his loss, in this exclusive interview — recorded at the convention -- Stan tells us why he remains optimistic about Kiwanis growing again, and in a common sense manner what he
thinks will make this happen.
7/20/09 -- "Changing the Guard" with Gov. Tom Ganse. It’s that time again, when Kiwanis prepares to change its leaders. This includes our Governor Tom Ganse, who on October 1, will be turning over the mantle of his office to successor Don Dudey. In this interview (click below), the Guv describes the change process and tell how to use it to get ready for next year’s growth efforts. Finally, he shares with us a piece of encouraging growth news.
7/27/09 -- "Let's Do Things Together" with Perry Cooper. Compelling projects attract new members to your club -- and help keep your current members active and involved. This is a good one. We learned the details at Nashville, and are sharing them through this interview. Clink and listen. It could be a great project for your Kiwanis Club.
