Membership Info

Membership in the Emerald Empire Kiwanis is essentially open to anyone with the simple requirements that they be at least 18 years of age and committed to serving their community.

In addition to enhanced opportunities to serve your community, membership in the Emerald Empire Kiwanis brings you into regular contact with persons of like interests, provides access to diverse volunteer projects and activities, helps you achieve personal community service goals, creates an association with a world wide service organization, and provides a monthly magazine that will keep you informed of Kiwanis service activities throughout the world. Membership may also provide important business and professional contacts.

An important benefit of membership in the Emerald Empire Kiwanis and association with Kiwanis International is insurance coverage that allows you to engage in a wide range of volunteer activities without worrying about issues of personal liability or injury.

Members of the Emerald Empire Kiwanis are encouraged to attend our weekly meetings whenever they can and to participate as a member of at least one of our service committees. There are no specific expectations for attendance but if members wish, there are a variety of alternative activities, for example participating in a service project, which can be credited as attendance.

As a member of the Emerald Empire Kiwanis Club you are automatically a member of the Pacific Northwest District and Kiwanis International. The Joining fee and the annual dues is $150.  This includes club, District and International fees.  If you were a previous member of one of the Service Leadership Programs, Builders, Key Club or Circle K, your District and International dues are waved for 2 years.
