For many clubs, the end of the school year is right around the corner. To make sure you have time to transition new club officers and provide training, be sure to hold elections no later than two months before the end of the year. On pages 32-39 of the K-Kids and Builders Club advisor guide, there is an outline of the election process and guidelines for officer training. To ensure a smooth transition process, have incoming leaders shadow outgoing officers.
After the elections, share the results with your club’s sponsoring Kiwanis club and introduce the new officers. Engage Kiwanians to facilitate the officer training—draw on the strengths of these adult members to make the training more impactful.
