ALL ABOUT THE KIWI CLUB
Message to All Kiwis and Website Visitors from the National Treasurer
Vicki Valenciano Kubal
The office of National Treasurer is a VOLUNTEER POSITION, as are all KIWI BOARD positions.
She handles all funds & financial records for the National Board and National Dues from all Chapters & Members at Large. This includes, but not limited to, receiving to recording and reporting to the National Board. Dispensing club expenditures & receiving all incoming & outgoing monies. The Treasurer keeps accurate record of those numbers & prepares monthly, quarterly & annual reports. Reports are a matter of putting the numbers in provided categories for the Board through QuickBooks.
The Treasurer works closely with the 2nd VP on Data Base changes, updates & removals.
WHAT DOES IT TAKE? FOCUS!
It’s volunteering in an important function for all KIWIS Nationwide.
The Treasurer will be provided with a financial ledger & QuickBooks forms to report to the President every month, so he or she knows where we are financially at all times.
Sample letters are provided also.
The Treasurer gives the details for the data base of every Kiwi nationwide and work closely with the President & both VPs.
The month of November of even number years is the month that the Treasurer is the busiest. It's important to plan ahead, get organized and focus.

to be a Member at Large (MAL) or become a chapter member and pay the chapter's fees, if any. There is no such
thing as being an “inactive” member or just being a “chapter member.”

As a group, the Kiwis have a National Endeavor, which, since 1996, has been Wings, an organization that provides aid to American Airlines Flight Attendants who are in critical need of financial assistance as a result of illness, injury, calamity or disability. Click Kiwi Club National Endeavor for more information and its history. Additionally, we take care of our own by donating $1 of our dues to the National Kiwi Fund, a fund that helps Kiwis in need.
Kiwis know how to have fun! However, we combine the fun with caring - for each other and our communities. At our meetings and social events, you will always hear laughter - we laugh at our flight tales and reminisce about the wonderful adventures we had during our flying careers and now in our everyday lives.
