General Meeting Guest Speaker  (post report)

Our last meeting’s speaker was Matt Braun of KPVM TV, who spoke to us on marketing our club to the community. He suggested that when talking to potential members, listen to what they have to say, and perhaps in that way, make a connection with them. If the connection is made, they will be willing to listen to what you have to say about Kiwanis.

Use social media more to post pictures of our events, meetings, and conventions. Something we do may strike a common chord in someone reading it. He said we should also post reminders and calendars so that people know what we’re doing throughout the year.

Think long-term and develop a good relationship with Key Club. We should invite them to meetings and hear about what they are doing. We should try to mentor them whenever possible, but the way to make that connection is to meet and talk.

All in all, great advice that we should take to heart and put into practice.
