2021 DCON Schedule at a Glance

Hotel Reservations at the Diplomat Beach Resort

Make your reservations at the Diplomat Beach Resort early! There is nothing like staying at the convention hotel to get you right in the middle of the action but you will need to get your room while there is still space available. We expect to sell out!

The Resort Fee is included in your room rate of $129. The complimentary resort fee amenities include:

  • 10% off the Resort Spa
  • Wifi access for 5 devices
  • Local and 800 phone calls
  • 1 hour rental of non-motorized watersports
  • 4 beach lounges per day
  • 1 fitness class per day

Kiwanis International and the Florida District of Kiwanis have adopted the meeting guideline of the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We intend to meet or exceed every rule for the pre-meeting testing and preparation, follow guidelines for suggested spacing and social distancing.

Proposed Amendment to the Florida District Bylaws

The following amendment proposal will be voted on by the delegates present in the House of Delegates at the convention:

Amendment: In October 2019, the Kiwanis International Board voted to eliminate the new member add fee and charter member fee, replacing both with prorated dues for new members effective October 1, 2021.

All-District in North America whose dues billing and collection are handled by Kiwanis International must adopt this change.
Additionally, Districts must use the same percentage schedule used by K.I.

This becomes effective October 1, 2021.

Now is the time to elect your certified club delegates. Each club may be represented by three (3) delegates. These delegates represent the voice of your club during the business session on Saturday. Each of the three certified delegates will receive a $20 credit towards their registration fee.

All officers and Lt. Governors-Designate of this district and any Past Lieutenant Governor of any Kiwanis District who are active members of a Kiwanis Club of the Florida District shall be delegates-at-large to all Florida District conventions. Delegates-at-large are not eligible for $20 credit unless they are one of the three elected certified delegates.
