How can I access information on all the clubs in my division?
Access the Members Only site. The first button in the top left-hand corner, Online Directory, will give you information on the current year's officers. Just put in your division number (no zero's in front of the number: just "4", not "04")and click "View Clubs". You will then be given each club in the division's meeting place with the time and date of the meetings. At the bottom of each club's information is a button that says "View Officer Info for 06-07".

How do I add, delete, or send a change of address on a member?
You will need the "Kiwanis Membership Information" Form. This form is available from Kiwanis International. You can download a copy of this form at classic.kiwanis.org/lit/forms/ Once you complete this form, please send it to KI for their records. However, the District Office does not need a copy of this form as we do not update membership information.
I need more Membership Information Forms. Where do I get them?
You can download a copy of the form at www.kiwanisone.org or call 800-KIWANIS (800-549-2647).
When is the Monthly Report due?
The monthly report form is due by the 10th of the month following the report month. For example, September's monthly report is due by October 10th.

Resources for Key Club Advisors
How can my club reinstate our Key Club?
Collect dues for a minimum of 15 members for the current year. A club cannot reactivate with less than 15 members. You must have the contact information and year of graduation for each student. 2011-2012 year dues are $13.00 per year per person. Include your name and contact information as well as the school advisor.
Have the Kiwanis Club write a letter that states they wish to continue to sponsor the Key Club. They also must send in a $100.00 check that is a re-instatement fee as long as the charter has not been revoked.
All of this (dues, roster, letter and $100.00 fee) should be sent together to:
Key Club International
3636 Woodview Trace
Indianapolis, IN 46268.
They will process the request, and that should get you club back on track.
