By definition, volunteers don’t get paid for what they do. Yet most do receive some sort of paycheck—a feeling of being appreciated for their work. What form that paycheck takes depends on the person and the act of service. When it comes to shows of appreciation, one size does not fit all. Recognizing members’ value, their investment, their contribution is key to retaining our members and motivating them to stay invested and involved in our club.
In the Kiwanis Club of Tulsa, we have several Member Recognition Programs:

  • Layman of the Year. This award is presented annually to the Kiwanian who, through his club, church, and community activities, has made an exceptional contribution to the spiritual life of, or within, the community. Click here to learn more about this award and see a listing of past recipients.

  • Youth Services Award. This annual honor is made to the member of our club who has been active in serving the youth through club projects and in other arenas of involvement. Click here to learn more about this award and see a listing of past recipients.

  • Perfect Attendance. Members who achieve perfect attendance receive a tab to be attached to their membership pin. The tab indicates the number of years that they have achieved this honor. These awards are made in October/November. Click here to see the listing of members who received Perfect Attendance for the 2012-2013 Kiwanis year.

  • Legion of Honor. This honor is presented annually to the members who have served our club for a minimum of 25 years. They are awarded a certificate and pin signifying the achievement.

  • George F. Hixson Fellowship. This honor was established in the 1983-84 Kiwanis year by the Kiwanis International Foundation.

  • Kiwanian of the Quarter/Year. This award is made by the President through the input of a committee selected by him/her. Nominations for the honor are accepted from the membership at-large. The award is designed to honor the member who has made a significant contribution to the success of the club by going above and beyond the call of duty. Any member in good standing is eligible for the award. The Kiwanian of the Year Award is presented to the member who has most exemplified the Objects of Kiwanis and made a significant contribution to the Kiwanis Club of Tulsa.
