Personal motivation
  • My professional experience and skills, can help to develop a more independent Kiwanis in Europe
  • Deployment of modern equipment is a conditio sine qua non. Use by encouraging members is just as important. A professional PR policy can help substantially here.
  • More women included in our clubs and in control, at all levels
  • There is increasing interest among young people in Kiwanis and we must make use of that interest to lay a broad foundation for the continuity and growth of the districts.
  • May I remind you that when I was governor, I chartered the club “Young Professionals Belgium-Luxembourg” and the club “Young Professionals Juventus Brugge”, and so the 120 junior members of our district became full members of Kiwanis. They, and all young people can count on my support.
