Patti Barsotti

Kiwanis International trustee candidate

Club: San Ramon Valley

District: California-Nevada-Hawaii

The candidate in her own words...

Why did you decide to run for office? 

Serving on and presiding over Kiwanis International committees has provided awareness of what can be accomplished by accepting additional leadership responsibilities. Kiwanians’ passion for service, my excitement as The Eliminate Project region coordinator for USA 4 and the teamwork of our Kiwanians inspires me to do everything possible to shepherd ideas to strengthen and grow Kiwanis.

What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?

Over 23 years of hands-on Kiwanis service and demonstrated volunteer leadership skills, coupled with 40 years in the financial profession, all provide a solid foundation allowing me to step forward, to continue to learn and contribute. Please see for a detailed list of background and qualifications.

How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis? 

As a past Kiwanis International officer, I would like to look back and say I inspired a little piece of our success in strengthening our Kiwanis organization by growing membership and increasing service and motivating others to get involved, thereby changing the world.
