Welcome District Governor Joni and First Dude Greg

Oahu Kiwanis Clubs welcomed our CNH District Governor Joni Ackerman and First Dude Greg Ronkainen on March 6 at an Oahu Interclub held at the Aiea Public Library. Gov Joni’s theme is CALL TO ACTION, not a call to discuss. One of her goals for 2017-18 is to charter 20 new clubs in CNH. Currently, there are 14 new clubs. Gov Joni chartered the Redondo Beach Kiwanis Club in January 2018. She encouraged clubs to hold a New Member Guest Day as a means of introducing Kiwanis to the community as well as increase membership in your club. Another goal is to see the CNH membership be +100 on September 30, 2018. Gov Joni is a graduate of the Ohio State University and Case Western Reserve School of Law. First Dude Greg Ronkainen is a member and past president of the Hermosa Beach Kiwanis. His theme is CALL TO AKTION and has personally sponsored three Aktion Clubs in Division 19. His focus is on assisting Kiwanis clubs build more Aktion clubs in Cal-Nev-Ha, encouraging more Aktion club members to attend their convention, and finding ways that encourage greater interaction between Kiwanis, Circle K and Aktion Clubs. Aktion Club is the only service club for adults with disabilities, with more than 12,000 members worldwide. Greg grew up in California and is a graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
