Kiwanis Club of Atlanta New Member Orientation is Feb 18th
Are you a new member to the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta?  Then come to our next new member orientation to learn more about the club and how to make the most of your membership.  We will go over the activities of the club so you can find a way to get more involved … plus learn a bit about the history of Kiwanis and how our club fits into the international organization!
The next Orientation is Tuesday, February 18, 1:30 pm after our luncheon meeting!
Just RSVP to to sign up.
And by the way … this is a great way for you veteran members to get re-energized!  There is always something new to learn!
Member Networking - Have a Spotlight Shine on You!
Do you want to let the members of our club know more about you and your business?  Do you want to network and cultivate more business contacts?  If you answered yes, then you need to sign up to do a "Member Spotlight" at one of our club meetings!
Increased Parking Costs are Now in effect for the Loudermilk Center Garage
Parking Cost Increase:  As you know, the parking increase for both those with parking cards and those that do daily tickets, was to increase Oct 1.  
There was a delay in preparing the system and it just went into effect Dec 16.   Be prepared for this when you leave on January 7th.  Parking Cards will cost $39 per quarter and parking tickets will be $4 per luncheon visit.  Keep in mind, that while this seems like a steep increase, we have not had a parking charge increase in the 20 years we have been having our luncheons here at the Loudermilk Center.
Are You a Legacy Member?
We are wanting to identify all members of our club who are Legacy Members!  Are you?
KCA Communications and Bulletins - We Want to Talk to You!
Are you having trouble receiving the KCA Bulletins and other email communications?  It appears that computer systems/servers who use Symantec are having trouble getting communications from our ClubRunner system delivered to their inboxes.  While we work on this issue with ClubRunner, I have an email list serve set up through Outlook to send the bulletins out each week to those who need it.  And if you are  having trouble receiving your quarterly bills, I can send them to you through QuickBooks.  Just email me at and I will add you to the list!
We Need YOU to be a part of the "Lunch Bunch"!
Our club is looking for folks who are willing to become part of the "Lunch Bunch" team!  Team members will help the lunch meetings operate smoothly by working the a/v board and sounds system in the back, ensuring that any a/v the speakers use are properly set up, and working the microphones during the Q&A sessions!
While no technical experience is necessary, volunteers should feel comfortable and confident adjusting sound levels and setting up the computer for power point and video presentations.  And the benefit is a dedicated comfy seat at the a/v table during lunch!  wink
Please contact Karen at to sign up!
