Club Renewal Center

North America & the Caribbean

To better serve our K-Kids, the 2017-18 membership kits will be shipped in September to all clubs who paid their 2016-17 renewal fee. To ensure active clubs receive enough materials, we ask sponsoring Kiwanis club secretaries to update the club’s membership count and mailing address by August 31. The sponsoring Kiwanis club can pay the renewal fee for the K-Kids club starting October 1. The invoice for the club is located under the Finances tab at the top of the Kiwanis club’s secretary dashboard.

HOW DO I RENEW MY K-KIDS CLUB FOR 2017-18?

The renewal process requires multiple steps. K-Kids clubs that paid their renewal fee in 2016-17 will receive a membership kit in September for the 2017-18 year. The sponsoring Kiwanis club will receive an invoice to pay the 2017-18 renewal fee on October 1. This invoice will appear on the Kiwanis club's secretary dashboard under the Finances tab.

To ensure your club receives enough materials in September, the sponsoring Kiwanis club secretary should complete the following steps by August 31:

1. Log into the Membership Update Center at www.kiwanis.org/login. Choose the Kiwanis club that sponsors the K-Kids club.

2. Select the secretary dashboard icon from the menu on the left side of the screen. Scroll down to the Sponsorships section and select the pencil icon next to the K-Kids club that the club sponsors.

3. Update club info. Confirm or update the membership count.

4. Update the mailing address. Verify or update the mailing address (include the attention address line) to which the membership kit should be shipped. If a mailing address is not updated, the kit will be mailed to the Kiwanis club secretary. 

5. Repeat steps 2-4 for each K-Kids club that the club sponsors.

WHAT WILL I RECEIVE IN THE K-KIDS PROGRAM KIT?

The program kit includes essential tools to help you guide club members throughout the year. 

WHEN SHOULD THE RENEWAL FEE BE PAID?

Starting October 1, sponsoring Kiwanis club secretaries are able to see the renewal fee invoice under the Finances tab on the secretary dashboard. It is important for the sponsoring Kiwanis club to pay this invoice at the earliest convenience so that the K-Kids does not miss out on resources or updates.

WHAT IF MY K-KIDS CLUB IS NOT SHOWING ON THE SPONSORING KIWANIS CLUB SECRETARY DASHBOARD?

Contact the Kiwanis International member services team at 1-800-549-2647 ext. 411 or email memberservices@kiwanis.org. We'll work with you to complete the renewal process.

WHAT IF MY K-KIDS CLUB IS NOT SPONSORED BY A KIWANIS CLUB?

Contact the Kiwanis International member services team at 1-800-549-2647 ext. 411 or email memberservices@kiwanis.org. We'll work with you to complete the renewal process.

WHAT WILL I RECEIVE IN THE K-KIDS PROGRAM KIT?

The program kit includes essential tools to help you guide club members throughout the year, such as the new IDEA Toolkit (a guide for club officers to lead members in achieving high-impact service), member handbooks, member buttons, stickers, and more!

WHAT IF I NEED MORE MATERIALS OR HAVE QUESTIONS?

If your K-Kids club has more members than provided in the member kit, supplemental kits can be ordered starting October 1 through the Kiwanis Secretary dashboard or from the Kiwanis International member services team at 1-800-549-2647 ext. 411 or email memberservices@kiwanis.org. Additional kits cost $25 and include member materials for 25 members. Payment must be received before additional kits will be shipped.

WHY HAS MY CLUB NOT RECEIVED ITS RENEWAL KIT?

Here are two reasons why your club might not have its kit:

Renewal kits were only sent to clubs who paid their renewal fee in 2016-17. The sponsoring Kiwanis club secretary should check the Finances tab on the Kiwanis club’s secretary dashboard to see if there are any outstanding balances on the K-Kids club.

If the sponsoring Kiwanis club secretary did not update the membership count and verify a mailing address in August, the kit was shipped to the Kiwanis club secretary’s mailing address on file. Contact memberservices@kiwanis.org to check to see which address was used.

Thank you for supporting K-Kids.
