Past KCA  Zoom! Virtual Club Meetings for You to Watch!
We have had some great speakers recently during our Kiwanis Club of Atlanta Zoom meetings!  If you couldn't participate, we have saved them to the cloud or Dropbox and happy to share them with you.  The  list of saved meetings is below.  If there is a hot link of the speaker name, you can click and view it through the web.  If it is through Dropbox, send an email to and let us know which meetings you would like to have. laugh
KCA Zoom Contact List
The club is creating a contact list of Kiwanis members directly on our Zoom account to make it easier to share speaker files, distribute any data they have sent, etc.  Only members that have a Zoom account can be on this contact list.  If you access the Zoom meetings through a direct link, but have not downloaded the Zoom app, then I cannot add you at this time.
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!
