KI Pres. Alan Penn:
March 2012 Message

A New District Publication is On Its Way!

I'm excited to report that the Capital District is going to have a new District publication which will replace the eBuilder and Mini-Builder! The Capital Kiwanian will make its debut in April as a bi-monthly, online magazine. This full-color publication will focus on the efforts of SLPs, clubs and divisions within the Capital District. You'll even be able to print it out for those members not online. Greg Davy of the Kiwanis Club of Williamsburg, VA will be the new District Editor of The Capital Kiwanian. Greg will be introducing himself in the April issue and might very well be contacting you for future articles. Feel free to contact him with your ideas and stories.

So, this issue of the eBuilder is my last. I've enjoyed my association with all those who have contributed to the eBuilder/miniBuilder over the past nine years. With each issue I've became more and more impressed with the amount of service provided to our community by your considerable efforts. I wish you continued success in your Kiwanis undertakings. - Dave Maloney

Gov. Jeffrey's Message

by Gov. Jeffrey Wolff

With the onset of Spring, we turn our focus to changes in the Kiwanis world.  Your Kiwanis clubs should already be planning your officer elections for the 2012-2013 administrative year.   The elections are typically held in April but your nominating committee should be identifying members now who are interested in serving on your Board of Directors this year and also with an eye toward the following year's leadership as well.

Your Lt. Governor should have contacted your club recently about planning a Membership Drive in celebration of Kiwanis Membership Month in May.   Starting your planning in March will ensure a successful event for your club and more new members to increase the service your club performs in its community.  ...more
