Amendment and resolution proposals

Don’t just have an opinion—put it into action. Be a convention delegate and enter the discussion about amendment and resolution proposals. Important amendments and resolutions are submitted for votes every year. 

Consult this year's proposed amendments and resolutions booklet.

(A printed copy will be available at the registration desk.)

Why do delegates matter?

In 1962, Kiwanians participating in the delegate session voted to expand Kiwanis beyond the United States and Canada.

In 1987, delegates voted to make Kiwanis-club membership available to women. 

In 2007, delegates passed the “flexibility amendment,” which allowed clubs to experiment with new forms of membership.

Your club or district may submit amendment proposals by emailing bylawsspecialist@kiwanis.org by February 15, 2013 For more information on how to submit an amendment or resolution proposal, read this FAQ sheet.
