2017-18 Club Coaching Days

Several similar coaching days will be offered throughout the district this year, bringing essential club excellence training to clubs to help them become stronger and more effective in providing service to their communities and to establish links between the clubs and individuals who can advise and assist them in their efforts.

This event is specifically designed to be:

  • Accessible (located close to clubs within driving distance)
  • Affordable (costing only a minimal amount for food and materials), and
  • Substantive (offering high-quality information in an interactive format).

We intend this event, and those like it, to be the most valuable club strengthening activity of the year for every club in the Carolinas.

Planned Dates

January 20, 2018            Florence, SC

March 10, 2018               Midlands Technical College Northeast Campus, Columbia, SC

May 5, 2018                    Guilford Technical Community College Jamestown Campus

July 21, 2018                  Nash Community College, Rocky Mount, NC

September 15, 2018         Blue Ridge Comm College, Henderson Co Campus, Flat Rock, NC

Who Should Attend? 

Any Kiwanian in the Carolinas District is welcome to attend.  But, every club within a two-hour driving radius of each event should plan to have representatives attend .  Club officers, Board members and committee chairs will find the material offered here particularly useful.  However, any member will benefit from the information being presented.

Why Is This Important? 

Every club, regardless of size or strength, can grow and become stronger, and more effective in serving the youth of their communities.  This may be your only opportunity this year to get all this information in one place, on one day, close to home, and easily affordable.

Kids Need Kiwanis! 

And, Kiwanis Needs Stronger, More Effective Kiwanis Clubs.
