Kiwanis clubs will soon have new bylaws. A revised Standard Form for Club Bylaws, which will become effective early during the 2012-13 Kiwanis year, will allow clubs more flexibility in their operations. The changes also simplified the standard form, with increased global application. This past June, the House of Delegates approved four Kiwanis International Bylaws amendments that allow the new club bylaws to be implemented (see amendments 1-4 in the "Approved" list.)
Six other amendments, approved by the Kiwanis International Council this past January, also helped effect these club bylaws changes. (See amendments 1-6 in “Council Adopts Bylaws Amendments,” February 2012 Kiwanis International Update.)
In accordance with the Kiwanis International Bylaws, which states that all clubs must conform to the accepted standards for clubs, all clubs are urged to adopt the new club bylaws sometime during the 2012–13 year. A fillable online version of the new club bylaws will be available approximately October 1.
