Monday Morning Growth Team Messages

by Jack White

5/4/09 -- Rob Parker, CEO, Kiwanis International "Kiwanis - Classic and Next"

5/11/09 -- Jack White, Past District Trustee & Growth Team Chair "Juguar and Kiwanis"

5/18/09 -- Don Canaday, Pres, Kiwanis International - "Don't Deny Children Kiwanis" (This message not only is special, it is a MASTERPIECE. I know that is a strong word, but I sincerely believe it. Don Canaday, President of Kiwanis International, was in Bristol, near my home, last week and took time to record two exclusive interviews for our Growth Team. This is the first of those messages; the second will follow next week. Together, they comprise an audio handbook on how to build new Kiwanis Clubs -- by the master builder himself. You see, Don was in Bristol to build his 108th new Kiwanis Club, and the way he does it is unlike any other I know about. Not only is Don a Master Club Builder, he is first-rate communicator.)

5/25/09 -- Don Canaday, Pres, Kiwanis International - "Build Your New Clubs BIG" (Here is the conclusion of our two-part interview with Kiwanis International President on New Club Building. Three days after this was recorded, Don finished working on his 108th new club build for Kiwanis. You and your club need to know how Don does this so you can build new clubs where you live.)
