ALL ABOUT THE KIWI CLUB
Message to All Kiwis and Website Visitors
from the National Executive Board Advisor
Jo Sharp McFadden,
As I sit here in my tiny cabin in the mountains, waiting for the next snowstorm, I would like all Kiwis to raise a glass to our 2018-2020 and 2020-2022 National Executive Board and Support Staff for keeping The Kiwi Club up and running during these strange times. It has not been easy, but they all put in the time and commitment to keep us going.The Convention Committee will be meeting soon in FTW to finalize hotel and dates for our 70th Anniversary Convention. The 50th reunion
Together We'll Soar!
for classes 1969-70 and 1971-1972 will be held during the convention, so contact your former roommates and plan on joining us.
TKC is always looking for a few good men and women to serve on the Executive Board.
If you like to reach out to people for membership and new chapter start-up, the 1st VP position is for you.
If you like details, data work, searching for former roommates, etc., the 2nd VP position is for you. The program we use is Access and not compatible with Apple system.
If you like numbers, inputting data, and financial reports, the Treasurer’s position is for you.
If you like listening and taking minutes, keeping in contact with the members through cards for special birthdays, health issues, and families of Kiwi’s who have flown west, the Secretary position is for you.
All these jobs take time, energy, and commitment but worth it to keep TKC, the oldest organization of its kind, going strong. If you are interested in any of the above positions, please contact me and I will put you in contact with the current Officer.

Advisor - Past National President
HOW TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE KIWI CLUB
The Kiwi Club offers two types of membership: Chapter Member or Member at Large. When you pay your national dues, you become a member of The Kiwi Club. There is no such thing as being an “inactive” member or just being a “chapter member.”
Click on any words that are in blue and underlined to open a link or an email address.
*Please fill out and submit the How to Join form and contact the National Vice President if you need more information. If you’ve got questions, she’s got answers! Any member of the National Board is willing to offer answers or assistance.
*To determine if a chapter is in your area, go to the Chapter Map link. This link shows the location of all Kiwi chapters. If you see a chapter you are interested in, please note that on the How to Join form. Or if you prefer to join as a member at large, make note of that on your form.
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.
