My Fel­low Kiwa­ni­ans;

I hope this day finds you in the best of spir­its ready for anoth­er amaz­ing con­ven­tion

It is my plea­sure to wel­come every­one to the Kiwa­nis Annu­al DIs­trict Con­ven­tion, meet­ing in beau­ti­ful Strat­ford.

First­ly, I would like to thank our hosts com­mit­tee of the DCON and the Com­mu­ni­ty of Strat­ford for giv­ing us the oppor­tu­ni­ty to host and be part of this event, which will be anoth­er his­toric event for EC&C, as it the first time that we all are going to join a com­mu­ni­ty of art, opera and the­atre per­for­mances and this per­haps may show us how we can learn and appre­ci­ate the val­ues and cul­tures of Strat­ford in a Kiwan­ian atmos­phere.

We hope to see as many Kiwanian’s and del­e­gates reg­is­ter for this con­ven­tion, where we will ded­i­cate all our efforts to build LEADERS by mak­ing lead­er­ship our main goal.

Lead­er­ship is quite a word in itself and I can very much relate to it because of hold­ing the posi­tion of GE. For exam­ple, every­one would want to lead and be fol­lowed, but has any­one ever real­ized how dif­fi­cult this task is and what roles and respon­si­bil­i­ties come with it?

The true leader is some­one who earns respect through his right­ful actions and mass fol­low­ing with­out any dic­ta­tor­ship. He inspires oth­ers to fol­low his foot­steps and become the guid­ing light for the human­i­ty, is some­one who car­ries the torch of wis­dom and enlight­ens the soci­ety there­by lead­ing peo­ple to the path of progress and growth the goal of Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al.

We encour­age you all to join us in Strat­ford and to be part of all the edu­ca­tion­al forums we will be offer­ing.

For me, it’s a great hon­our and a priv­i­lege to serve as your GE and look for­ward to my year as gov­er­nor 2019 — 2020

I sin­cere­ly thank you all for the oppor­tu­ni­ty to be your loy­al ser­vant of this won­der­ful orga­ni­za­tion “Kiwa­nis”.

Yours in ser­vice

Robert Spellen
Gov­er­nor Elect
