Distinguished Awards This year, CNH KIWIN’S Awards Committee has decided to change the awarding process for the Distinguished Awards (excluding Distinguished Club). A threshold will be implemented instead of awarding a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and honorable mention. In order to receive a Distinguished Award, you must either meet or surpass the threshold level. Each award given will be weighed equally. This will allow for more people to be recognized. These include: • Distinguished Club Appointed Board Officer • Distinguished Club Secretarial Team • Distinguished Treasurer • Distinguished Vice President • Distinguished President

Rules Governing the Distinguished Vice President Award

Robert Greenleaf, the founder of the modern servant leadership movement, wrote: “A true leader is called to serve his/her followers, employees, and others in the organization.” The duty as a vice president of a KIWIN’S club consists of being more than the president’s assistant. The vice president has to help keep the club productive and assist the president in finding service projects and fundraisers. Two major aspects of great vice presidents are their versatility and will. They are able to perform the duties of all officers in any situation and find ways to make them useful when no particular task is demanded of them. The Distinguished Club Vice President Award acknowledges an outstanding vice president of a KIWIN’S club for his or her commitment to the club and community.
