President's Column


Dear Kiwanian,   


One of the best aspects of being a Kiwanian is the social interaction with other club members. At the Kiwanis Club of Omaha, we have many opportunities to get to know each other, not just for business networking but for cultivating long-term friendships.   Of course, many of us accomplish this regularly and informally by frequent contact with club members who have become good friends. Our club has many other ways to make social interaction a regular part of our weekly and monthly activities. They include:

  • Regular Friday meetings.   We have time before, during, and after meetings to see each other.
  • Social events. Our new Social Committee, chaired by Susan Evans and Shannon Norman, will plan a few events throughout the Kiwanis year.   The first one is a Nebraska football watching event on November 1st.   See your Kiwanis bulletin for more details.
  • K2B.   Our Kiwanis to Business Committee, chaired by Chris Staab, Grant Mussman, and Marcos Hernandez, will plan several networking events throughout the Kiwanis year.
  • One on Ones.   This simple program gives you multiple annual opportunities to schedule meetings with other participating club members assigned to you at various times.   Let Katie Dittman know if you want to participate in this easy program.
  • Service projects. Service projects are a great way to be around club members and others.   See the Kiwanis bulletin for upcoming service opportunities. Chris Tooker leads this new committee.

If you want to get to know other club members, give one or more of these a try.   You won't regret it.
