Certified Club Delegates receive a $20 credit toward their registration fee. To apply for the credit, enter the coupon code DELEGATE when you are completing your registration.

Each club is entitled to three elected delegates and three alternates who may serve if any delegate is absent. Club delegates and alternates must be active members of the clubs they represent. However, the Lieutenant Governor or a past Lieutenant Governor may represent any club in their division not otherwise represented by three delegates. Delegates must be elected by each club before the convention and be certified to the district by the club president and secretary.

Official delegates of a newly organized Kiwanis club shall be granted full privileges at District conventions if the charter has been approved by the Kiwanis International Board of Trustees, even if it has not been formally presented to the such club.
All officers and Lt. Governors-Designate of the Florida district and any Past Governors and Past Lieutenant Governors of any Kiwanis district who are active members of a Kiwanis club of the Florida District are delegates-at-large to all conventions

Alternates and delegates-at-large do not qualify for the $20.00 delegate credit.


There will be a casual and informative “First-Timers/Kiwanis 101” workshop held on Thursday afternoon, and again on Friday morning. Presenter “Carp” Carpenter will provide some tips and tricks to make your first Kiwanis convention a complete success. You will learn about the bigger picture of Kiwanis and meet and mingle with other convention first-timers.

district bylaw amendments

The Kiwanis International Board recently approved changes to the Standard Form for District Bylaws. This includes restricting the option for candidates to oppose the Governor-elect for Governor, as well as several other changes.

Since these have been approved and implemented, adoption of these changes is not optional but must still be approved in our House of Delegates.
