In order to carry out all the projects that Kiwanis is involved with throughout the year, each member is asked to join one or more committees.

Camp Vending Machines Maintain all vending machines and provide accurate reporting of all income and expenses. Re-locate any machine that is not producing adequate revenue and work to find new locations to add additional machines.
Club Assessment Committee Assess projects as completed. Work with project chair or committee on what was done, how many children were reached. Fill out paperwork to submit to club secretary for reporting. Keep track of all projects and suggestions for next year. By the end of the Kiwanis Year have suggestions of projects to continue and ideas of new projects to try.
Club Meetings/Fellowship Arrange for weekly meetings and focus on scheduling presenters who we have provided funding for and/or are relevant topics for Kiwanis members information/education. Committee members to offer times of fellowship outside of meetings and board meetings to get to know each other and their spouses or significant others. Such as social events after work, back yard bbq's, dinner and a movie, putt putt golf, bowling, etc. Also create fun activities on the months that have a fifth Monday.
Community Service Develop monthly opportunities for service. Create a monthly calendar of events where members can do community service. Develop a Blood drive within our membership and organize weekly opportunities to donate blood. Salvation Army soup kitchen volunteer opportunities, Christmas angel project, Kids Cruisin kitchen during the summer months, Blessings in a Backpack assistance, quarterly Mercy Meal food packaging events, National night out and back to school supply and clothing event with the Salvation Army and/or Rescue Mission
Foundation / Eliminate Project Work with the board and club members on the Eliminate Project. Goal of $100,000 to be raised in 5 years for the International Project.
Human & Spiritual Values Arrange for greeters and invocation, have this list of names to the President a month in advance. Strive to include as many different members as possible for these tasks. Also arrange and organize Church youth recognition day to be held in April.
Kiwanis Camp Maintain camp and organize a camp cleanup day to include a thorough cleaning of clubhouse. Goals for camp for the year are to conduct maintenance and repair such as windows, picnic tables, wood chips for walking trails and rebuilding red shed. Research new playground equipment. Support potential Eagle Scout project of beginnings of an archery range. Committee to make sure Camp is ready for annual picnic and available to grill.
Major Emphasis/Youth Services Organize the Christmas shopping program, Youth Track program and read around the world. Look at opportunities to assist at The Zone and possibly complete a Kiwanis One Day Event with The Zone. Also would like to see at least 5-10 different opportunities for members to provide service to our youth. Work closely with the Community service committee to develop monthly opportunities for service.
Membership Growth Retain membership and increase club membership by plus two members by end of year by organizing and promoting special member/guest events. Work closely with the fellowship committee to plan events to recruit potential members and use service opportunities to recruit new members. Encourage inviting guests to every meeting. Create membership packet for each new member. Create an information packet for visitors with application included. Schedule and hold two New Member Orientations (January and July).
Nominating Committee Consider members who would fulfill a leadership role by serving on the board. Call on members, nominate, etc.
