Looking ahead to the 2016 convention

Apr 14, 2015
Get your club excited about attending the 101st annual convention in Toronto, Canada, in the summer of 2016. Tell them what it's like to experience a Kiwanis International convention—and give them a glimpse of all Toronto has to offer by visiting the Toronto tourism website. Watch videos about the host city. Download the 2016 convention logo and post it to your club's website and in your newsletters and emails. Keep up with the latest news by subscribing to email updates about convention.

Most importantly, make a place in your club's budget to send two delegates to the convention. They will vote on issues shaping the future of Kiwanis. And they'll return better equipped to help your club serve your community. After all, representation at the Kiwanis International convention is more than just a line item in your club's budget. It's your club's voice.

Include funds in your club's administrative budget for two club representatives. When you calculate the budget for the convention, here are the costs you should consider covering for two people:

  • Registration fee
  • Select ticketed events
  • Travel
  • Hotel accommodations
  • Per diem
If your club needs some guidance with budgeting, get a template for the club budget in the Leadership Guide. Go to the treasurer's section to find the template.
