A Message from Governor, Jan Burch

SPRING TRAINING

Don’t worry…spring can’t be far behind after literally days of below zero temps.  And with spring, comes baseball.  Did you know that all 30 Miracle League Baseball teams will begin play on the same day in 2018?  March 29.  This is the time this has happened since 1968!  And their spring training begins February 21.

 

And it’s time for our Kiwanis leaders to gather for Spring Training.  This year, instead of our traditional District Mid-Year Conference Rally, we will be holding two regional Leadership Summits.

  • Saturday, February 10, Marriott Conference & Convention Hotel, 1250 Jordan Creek Parkway, West Des Moines (just off I-80)

OR

  • Saturday, February 17, Holiday Inn Southwest Omaha, 3650 S 72nd St, Omaha (just off I-80)

Leadership team members include:

  • District Officers
  • Regional Trustees
  • Lieutenant Governors
  • District Committee Chairs
  • SLP Administrators
  • Formula Team Members
  • NE-IA District Foundation board members

 

The purpose of two regional meetings is primarily to cut down on windshield time for all affected and to eliminate overnight expenses.  The West Des Moines event is expected to draw our Iowa Lieutenant Governors, with the Omaha event to draw our Nebraska Lieutenant Governors.

 

If you’re a member of one of the above groups, you MUST register.  If you are planning to attend both events, you MUST register for EACH event.
