Kiwanis - Serving the Children of the World
Swift Current
Serving the Children of the World
What does membership mean
Membership in a Kiwanis club connects a person with the community and other individuals he or she wouldn't otherwise know.  Club members learn about developments and happenings in their community during their regular club gatherings.  They also enjoy new social and business networking opportunities with the wide variety of members in their club.  And, together, they combine their interests and skills to improve their community in ways that make a real impact in the lives of others, particularly children.

Kiwanis is a voluntary organization.  Clubs choose their own members. Each club selects its members from the surrounding community.  Kiwanis clubs look for persons over 18 years old who are interested in their community and other people, and they seek members who can contribute four to six hours a month for club activities and projects.  After paying an induction fee upon joining, each member pays annual dues, which are set by the club.

Membership of the Kiwanis Club of Swift Current is by invitation. Prospective members are sponsored by existing members and, following approval by the Board of Directors, the prospective member is asked to join.

Kiwanis membership is open to persons of good character and community standing who reside in, or have other interests in the area served by the Club.  A Kiwanian is expected to be involved in the activities of the Club and to be regular in attendance.

New members participate in an orientation program which helps them determine how to become involved in ways that best match their personal interests and skills.  Members quickly learn that the benefits of membership increase with their level of participation in their club.  They find the "Kiwanis Connection" to be an excellent fit in their personal and professional lives.

What Kiwanis offers its members
  • An opportunity  to improve the quality of life in the community by sharing their experience, knowledge, time, and  love in service to their community and their peers.
  • An opportunity to unite with young people in joint community service projects.
  • Meetings that provide enlightenment and opportunities for networking and personal involvement in community projects.
  • Fun and fellowship while working together for the benefit of children, adults in need, the physically and mentally challenged, and the underprivileged.
  • Self-growth through leadership and satisfaction through accomplishment.
  • The formation of worthwhile and lasting friendships with people you otherwise might never meet.
  • The opportunity to attend Kiwanis conventions worldwide.
  • The prestige of Kiwanis membership, fun, fellowship, and evidence of true friendship each time we meet.
