Kiwanis Club of Tysons

About Jen




By providing ongoing support and education to club leaders on service projects, fundraising endeavors, and leadership development so that existing clubs will grow

This year we:

  • Created and Distributed a Club Resource Guidebook with project & advocacy ideas, human & spiritual values focus suggestions, and D.E.I.B. considerations for each meeting.
  • Created the monthly newsletter for club leaders, Top 5 on the 5th, which kept them in the know on the most important topics of each month.
  • Took the steps to move the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion committee from a task force, to a standing committee, because it is important for clubs to consider different perspectives when recruiting and retaining members — whether it’s abilities, ethnicity, gender, etc.
  • Created the monthly Member of the Month and Club Spotlight awards to celebrate our awesome members and clubs.


By assisting clubs with new service leadership program opening and reconnection with their existing programs

This year we:

  • Brought back the annual Kiwanis Family Weekend Conference for District Leadership of Kiwanis, CKI, and Key Club to plan together for a successful year and make connections.
  • Worked with CKI to grow from 371 to 407 members.
  • Worked with Key Club to grow from 10,282 to 11,420 members.
  • Built 4 new K-Kids Clubs and 3 new Builders Clubs.


By ramping up public relations efforts on the district and divisional levels to inform the public about local club’s good works

This year we:

  • Generated a district-wide media list for outreach.
  • Created a social media team for increased, strategic posting of news and content.
  • Created an instagram account for the Capital District.
  • Increased our Facebook posting in the past year by 147%.
  • Increased our Facebook reach in the past year by 313%.


So that we bring in new members and leaders that can serve children in areas that need Kiwanis

This year we:

  • Built 7 clubs: Haymarket-Gainesville, VA; Mathews, VA; Short Pump, VA; Salisbury, MD; Kiln Creek, VA; Catonsville, MD; Greenbrier Valley, WV.
  • Added over 600 new members to clubs in our district.
  • Split the membership team into two focuses — club strengthening and club opening.
  • Created a Facebook Marketing Specialist position to support clubs in facebook campaign recruitment efforts.
