How to be a Successful Member!
1. Reflect on the Objects of Kiwanis
Every member was inducted with the Objects of Kiwanis as the guiding principles of our organization and as a framework to fulfill our obligations as a Kiwanian. This is the foundation of how to be a successful member.
- To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.
- To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
- To promote the adoption and the application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
- To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
- To provide, through Kiwanis clubs, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build better communities.
- To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and good will.
