The Kiwanis Club of Denville is part of Kiwanis International and one of about 8,600 clubs in 80 countries around the world.
We chartered on July 10, 1946 - making us one of the oldest service clubs in Denville!
Our membership is comprised of men and women involved in business or professional fields who share a common desire...to serve their local and worldwide community. Membership is open to all who are interested in committing time and other resources to community service.
We believe that together, we can accomplish much more than any one of us can as an individual. Membership in Kiwanis affords everyone the opportunity to provide meaningful service, to network with others of similar interests and to pursue positions of leadership within the Kiwanis world.
Membership in Kiwanis is by invitation, and this is your invitation to join our club.
Club members meet for dinner every Monday evening at Mancino's Pizza, 490 E. Main Street, Denville, NJ at 6:30 PM. Meetings are designed to discuss and coordinate club activities, build friendships and enjoy a variety of programs of community and personal interest. Meetings last for approximately an hour and a half, While there is no mandatory attendance requirement, members are encouraged to attend as many meetings as possible
The club meetings are presided over by the club President. The club President-elect is the next in line of succession. The remainder of the slate of officers is made complete by a Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Supporting the officers is a Board of Directors and a team of Committee Chairpersons to coordinate the specific activities of the club.
The Board of Directors determines the business of the club and meets monthly to make sure that all required club management issues are discussed and resolved. The Board also approves all expenditures.
All officers are elected annually and the club President appoints all Board members at the outset of the term. The Kiwanis Administrative year begins on October 1 and ends on September 30 each year.
