Get Involved

The Kiwanis Club of Norfolk is a great place to improve your involvement in our community while having fun and meeting new people. To become a member of the Kiwanis Club of Norfolk, please follow our guidelines below:

Step 1: Attend club meetings (in-person or virtual)

Before you decide if our club is for you, it is best for you to attend a few events which can include service projects, meetings, or socials. This will give you the opportunity to learn more about the club and meet our members. Check out our club’s calendar and e-mail our Membership Director at [email protected] to give us a heads-up if you plan to attend an event.

Step 2: Fill out our membership application form and pay club dues

After you have attended a few events, you are eligible to apply for membership to the club and pay dues for the current year.  Our year runs October 1 – September 30 and our dues schedule is explained under frequently asked questions (see below).  Complete your application online today!

Step 3: Be assigned a member sponsor and get inducted

Each new member will be assigned a member sponsor. Your sponsor is usually someone you have met at a club event you have attended and who will help educate you on all the various programs, conferences, organization’s background, and benefits of Kiwanis to ensure you get the most out of your membership. New member inductions are very casual and are held as needed based on new memberships.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How often do I have to attend a club meeting? We wish all our members would attend all our meetings, but there is no actual requirement. We meet on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Thursday of each month at 12noon, for lunch along with a club meeting. On the 4th Thursday of the month, there is a board meeting for the officers and the members of the board.
