INFORMATION CONCERNING KIWANIS INTERNATIONAL BILLING FOR 2015-16 MEMBERSHIP
Following procedures used last year, Kiwanis International will not be creating a club roster for clubs to update and submit. Instead, clubs need to update the membership by September 30, midnight (EST), for new member adds to be counted in the 2014-15 year, and no later than October 10 for deleted members to be removed from the 2015-16 dues billing. Deletes made on or by October 10 (midnight-eastern standard time) will be counted in the 2014-15 year.
Go to the KiwanisOne Club Management portal at www.kiwanisone.org/login. Check your active members online to be sure that all new members are added by September 30 and all non-returning members are deleted by October 10. This system is open and available to submit changes NOW.
Kiwanis will invoice all clubs in late October 2015.
Again, same as last year....NO PAPER or ELECTRONIC ROSTERS WILL BE GENERATED.
Upon request by a club, Kiwanis International will email or postal mail a current roster. Please contact the Kiwanis helpline at 800-549-2647 ext 411, or email@example.com for assistance.

What if you could save a baby's life?
With The Eliminate Project, you can. Maternal and neonatal tetanus (MNT) kills one baby every nine minutes. But three doses of a 60-cent vaccine can protect mothers and babies. Kiwanis and UNICEF have joined forces to bring this vaccine to 38 countries, eliminating MNT from the face of the Earth. What can you do right now? Learn about MNT and advocate for the cause. Participate in our fundraisers. Over the next few years, the work we do will change the world. Find out more at www.TheEliminateProject.org.
