Governor-Elect Robert (Bob) Spellen

I come from a fam­i­ly of 10 sib­lings and have been thought from birth how to take care, respect, and look after oth­ers.

This dri­ve has remained to date my vision and hence the rea­son why I also joined Kiwa­nis in 1989. With 29 years of Kiwa­nis expe­ri­ence occu­py­ing all the posi­tions in Kiwa­nis, receiv­ing numer­ous recog­ni­tions and dis­tinc­tions I still humbly remain the same per­son car­ing for oth­ers. Posi­tion is just a title and thus has lit­tle mean­ing in my cur­ricu­lum.

My vision is build­ing lead­ers and that is what we need in Kiwa­nis, “LEADERS

Lead­er­ship is the art of get­ting some­one else to do some­thing you want done because he/she wants to do it.

I would like to work dili­gent­ly to engage and moti­vate mem­bers so they learn, read, think crit­i­cal­ly, cre­ate, col­lab­o­rate, and ulti­mate­ly become life-long learn­ers and lead­ers which I know is not an easy task.

Lead­er­ship involves moti­va­tion, empow­er­ment, gen­uine con­cern and com­mit­ment for the growth of Kiwa­nis in gen­er­al.

This vision and pur­pose must be dri­ven through a mis­sion by estab­lish­ing mutu­al respect, trust, and a safe envi­ron­ment for all to lead by exam­ple.

As your leader I would moti­vate you by com­mu­ni­cat­ing and mod­el­ing enthu­si­asm, com­mit­ment, integri­ty, flex­i­bil­i­ty, and inno­va­tion for the future growth of Kiwa­nis.

Lead­er­ship is about forg­ing rela­tion­ships and per­pet­u­at­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion cen­tered on and around a com­mon vision, of goals and val­ues


I’ve gained through­out my years as a Kiwan­ian and par­tic­u­lar­ly as I pur­sue my task as GE, the dri­ve that have led me to val­ue the impor­tance of encour­ag­ing and empow­er­ing lead­er­ship in oth­ers.

Yours in ser­vice

GE Bob
