Electing new officers

The school year isn't over quite yet, but it's already time to think about electing new club officers for next year! April is the ideal month to begin the election process. This leaves plenty of time to make a smooth transition from current officers to new ones, which will help your club hit the ground running at the start of next year. Help ensure officers are prepared to take office October 1, 2013. Usually, the election process takes place over the course of three consecutive meetings. Here's a suggested procedure that can be modified to fit the needs of your specific club:
  1. Announce new officer elections, explain the responsibilities for each office, and encourage nominations for each club position. You can find detailed information about each office on page 5 of the K-Kids advisor guide.
  2. At the next meeting, allow candidates to campaign. Set aside time for each candidate to present visions and ideas (their "platform") for the upcoming year.
  3. Hold elections at the third meeting. Conduct by secret ballot. Then share results with the school/site administration and your sponsoring Kiwanis Club.
