Why did you decide to run for office?
To bring my long experience and my enthusiasm in “serving the children” to the office of trustee on the Kiwanis International Board.
What qualifies you to become an officer of Kiwanis International?
I know how Kiwanis works because of my long experience in the Kiwanis Family since 1982, occupying many positions in and outside of Italy. My Kiwanian life shows my aptitude for improving the Kiwanis impact, especially in achieving concrete results while serving children and my community, and promoting club growth.
How will you leave your mark on Kiwanis?
Planning a new strategy to have a stronger impact, to maintain current members and to attract new members, especially young professionals.
