Amendment results

The House of Delegates had two proposed amendments on its agenda during the 96th Annual Kiwanis International Convention in Geneva. Neither were considered, due to a lack of a motion:

A proposal from the Kiwanis Club of Blue Island, Illinois, to establish real-time online broadcasts of convention activities.
A proposal also from the Kiwanis Club of Blue Island, Illinois, to establish real-time online voting during convention.
