Wednesday, August 22 - Connecting Kiwanis Across the Nation
Rushton Hurley, Member of the West San Jose Kiwanis Club, will Zoom with us from his home in San Jose.  Although it will be 4:30 AM in his house, Rushton is excited to tell us what they are doing out on the west coast.  He will also share an innovative meeting strategy that he created with his Rotary eClub of Silicon Valley (yes, he belongs to both) where the club exists online.  They don't actually meet in a synchronous manner.  The presentations are recorded and posted.  The members connect with each other online through their website. Rushton is an imaginative man and it will be exciting to spend some time with him to hear what he has accomplished as well as share our successes.
