See y'all in New Orleans

Things are heating up and plans are under way for the 2012 Kiwanis International Convention in New Orleans. Don't miss out!

Of course we have what you'd expect from a convention: entertainment, governance, workshops and fellowship. But we have a lot of things you might not have heard about.

Did you know this is the year we celebrate 25 years of women in Kiwanis? Well it is, and we have a whole lineup of things planned to recognize this milestone. From workshops and forums to a welcome reception, we will honor women during this year's convention.

Music is at the heart of New Orleans, so of course we plan to jazz things up. Don't miss the special ticketed concert with local legends Aaron Neville and Branford Marsalis. And we'll kick things off at opening session with a New Orleans-themed party that will have you tapping your toes and clapping your hands.

This is a special year in that Circle K International will hold its annual convention at the same time as Kiwanis and in the same city, so we're lucky to have the students in New Orleans for their Large Scale Service Project and convention. Aktion Club also joins us in the Big Easy for the second-annual Training and Leadership Conference. Key Club and CKI alumni are invited to some special events in the city as well. It's going to be a true Kiwanis-family event!

And of course, there are many tours in and around New Orleans that you'll want to check out, and also make sure to check in with your district leaders to learn about any special outings or dinners that are planned.

This is just a little of what you can expect in New Orleans this summer as we celebrate another year of service and 25 years of women in Kiwanis. 

Convention registration gets you all of this and more. So don't miss out! Register today, and we'll see y'all in New Orleans.
