A new look for Kiwanis.org

Steven Hadt | Apr 03, 2017

Kiwanis.org has a new look and feel. The updated website will be easier for users to find the material they need to help kids in their communities. But, most importantly, it's mobile optimized. Users will be able to use the website in a way that's friendly to the device they're using.

On the home page, you'll notice it is much cleaner with fewer calls to action. You'll also find the most recent Kiwanis stories, Kiwanis news and news releases we've published. From the home page, you can get to the "news" section to see more news about Kiwanis; the "about" section to learn all about Kiwanis; and the "clubs" section to learn about all the clubs in the Kiwanis family. Those pages were created as a marketing tool for prospective members and partners. 

Kiwanians will want to look at the “member resources” section to find material to help them run their clubs, serve the community and raise funds to help children. To get into that section, click the member resources link in the black bar at the top of any page on the site. 

On the member resources page, the button called "member login" gets users to the member login and reporting functions. That area formerly was called KiwanisOne. There's also a button that takes the user to all The Formula resources, leadership training, events, governance documents and information on awards and recognition. 

Below the buttons, you'll find resources for working with and opening new Service Leadership Program clubs. There's a section on service projects, which includes signature projects, a list of service project ideas, fundraising ideas and information about Kiwanis One Day. 

Continue scrolling and you will find the club playbook, which has more resources for members and clubs. 

Please know that the sites that contain The Formula, the Kiwanis Children's Fund and the Kiwanis International convention did not receive the updated look. Also, we were unable to refresh the non-English pages. There is code in the new site that detects the browsers' language and takes the user to that language on the old site.   

We think you'll like the site and find it much more intuitive for finding what you need. Take a look. Explore. If you need help finding material, contact member services.
