Here's What's Going On!
Workshops, Workshops, Workshops
VCON will have over 15 educational workshops. Whether you choose to participate by watching Workshops On-Demand or live sessions, VCON will be packed full of ideas for improving your clubs, supporting your SLPs, and club officer training!
District Awards and Recognitions
Convention is a time to reflect on those Kiwanians who make extra efforts for the success of our District.
Friday, July 31st is dedicated to District committee and business meetings, including the State of the Foundation annual meeting. Most Friday meetings are open to all Kiwanians, so plan to stop in and watch yoiur Board and committees in action.
K-Family Lunch - B.Y.O. Lunch
Order in a pizza, and join us for a general session focused on our Service Leadership Programs. From K-Kids to Aktion Club, our partners are doing amazing things and growing our future leaders. Come and meet them all!
Two live Q&A sessions will be hosted on Saturday afternoon to provide Kiwanians an opportunity to ask questions to two panels of "experts". There will be an SLP Q&A focused on SLP chartering and sponsoring, and an Alphabet Soup Q&A of District leaders to answer all your non-SLP questions.
Meet the District Boards
The Southwest District is lucky to have dedicated, hard-working Kiwanians serving on the District Board. Tune into Closing Session to meet the current and incoming District Boards.
