Kiwanis Club of Atlanta Office is on the Move!
The Robert Woodruff Volunteer Center (aka "United Way Building") has been sold and the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta office is looking for a new location!  This is only affecting the office, NOT the luncheon meeting location.  We will continue to have our weekly luncheons every Tuesday, Noon, at the Loudermilk Center Ballroom with parking in the adjacent deck. The United Way is moving into the Loudermilk Center offices (the ARC is moving out soon) and they will continue to own and operate the Loudermilk Center and the parking deck.
So where will the club offices go?  That is what we are currently trying to figure out!  We are researching several options from a small office space similar to what we have now, as well as a shared office location with a storage facility for the office records and archives.  Of course, if you happen to have some office space in downtown, midtown or Buckhead area of Atlanta, and would like to donate it for the office to use, we would love to hear from you!  But also email me if you know of open space in your building which is at a reasonable rate, and is in a good location and convenient for our weekly meetings.  Our target transition is this August, but we must relocate by November.
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!
Spotlights are done every 2nd and 4th Tuesday luncheon meeting (and the occasional 5th) each month.  You have two minutes to showcase your business and tell the other members how you can benefit them!  To get on the schedule, just email Karen at

Kiwanis Club of Atlanta Car Decals
Don't get the BOOT!  Be sure your car has a Kiwanis Club of Atlanta car decal properly displayed on your vehicle.
The security company contracted by Lanier Parking will be booting all cars that are parked in the reserved parking places and that do not have a valid decal on their car identifying them as attending the Kiwanis Club of Atlanta luncheon.  So if you arrive prior to 11:45 am on Tuesday, please make sure you have a parking decal on your car.  You can get a decal from Karen at the luncheon meeting, and then place it on the right back window (passenger side) from inside your car.  They are static cling, so easy to put on and take off!
