The Kiwanis Southwest District Bylaws entitle each chartered club in good standing to three voting delegates and three alternate delegates as representatives at the Kiwanis Southwest District convention. Use the form linked below to register the names of your club’s elected delegates and alternates.

This is not a convention registration form. Delegates and alternates must also complete the convention registration form and submit it with payment to receive voting credentials. Delegates must have paid a convention registration fee in order to received credentials. Bylaws Section VI Section 9: To be accredited, a delegate must have paid a convention registration fee, if such is required.

No delegate will receive voting credentials for any club that has any indebtedness to Kiwanis International or the Southwest District. Please ensure your club’s financial obligations are paid prior to the convention.

If no member of your club is able to attend the convention, you may prearrange to have representation through a past governor, current, past, or elected, lieutenant governor, or a past district secretary, all residing in your club’s division, or the current district secretary (regardless of location) to represent your club.

Delegates at large need not complete this form unless planning to represent a specific club.
SWD Bylaw Section VI Convention Article 8. All officers, Lieutenant Governors Elect and past Governors of the District who are active members of a club in the district shall be delegates at large to all district conventions.

In case of dispute a copy of your Club’s Minutes will be requested by the Executive Director and will establish the voting members for your club. Credentials for disputed delegates will be withheld until the requested Minutes are received and validated.

Complete the Delegate Registration form no later than July 15, 2024.
