A Message from our President...

Stephanie McCauley Butler
President 2022-2024

Greetings, Kiwis!

It’s been a little over a year since I took the position as National President. This year has gone by very fast; soon, it will be Convention 2024, and a new president and board will take the helm. The National Board has been working together as a team, taking on projects and seeing them through to completion. I’m so proud of the board and the support staff for their dedication in carrying out their duties.

We have another year to go and a few more projects to take on. Prioritizing what's most important and taking the first step gets us started. I recently read an adage, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” This made me think of our first board meeting and making plans for our two years in office. Working together with respect for each other gives us direction to accomplish our endeavors with ease and grace.

The Kiwi Club is as special as you, the members, make it. It stays special through your interest, support, and time given to attending the Convention or chapter gatherings. Please keep checking the website for updates on "Savannah Sojourn 2024." The Convention Committee has wonderful plans in store for us!

Best Regards, Stephanie

Our National Board

The Kiwi Club Board of Directors is elected every two years and the board members are installed at our National Convention.
