  • Communications Director Martina Hanson

Hey everyone I'm Martina I live in Ridgeway Ont , with my fabulous husband and our fur babies. I'm in my 4th year as a Kinette. I hit the ground running holding the secretary position in my home club for 2 years in a row and look forward to furthering my skills on the district team next year . My favorite part of Kin is the family and friends I have made and gained so many experiences and grown as an individual. I am proud to be a member of such an amazing association supporting the needs of each of these communities, I can't wait to continue learning, growing and supporting everyone and their clubs , if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me any time at: mhanson@kincanada.ca I look forward to connecting with you in the future !

Welcome to a new KIN year and a summer full of club projects and socials.

Remember that Kinship 1 is always looking for content.

Sharing what you did this summer is a great tool to show your successes for your club and community.

I look forward to receiving your event pictures.

Yours in Kin,


Countdown is on !!

" Summer Edition " of Kinship 1.

The focus will be " Projects "

I will be looking for input on Club Projects; big or small, editorials, pictures, successes ( big or small )

April and May were/are busy months for a lot of clubs and it is a great opportunity to share some of the things clubs do that work for them for other clubs to see and maybe think about doing in their club/community.

As well I am looking for pictures from your Zone Conferences, Spring Convention, any celebrations that you have attended or might be attending in the coming weeks etc etc.

Thank you for visiting the Communications page.

It is my role this year to communicate for the good of Kin and spark all of you to communicate with each other.

You can follow Kin on our District 1 Kin Facebook group page and on Twitter @District1KIN

For current and past issues of Kinship 1 our District newsletter please see the link at the top of this page.

One of the best communications tool that your club can use is a Club Bulletin.

I encourage you to visit the Awards page; District Award package 2013-2014 for the criteria for the Bulletin Awards and use that as your template to generate content, interest, information, education and news from all levels of our Association.

Club Activities posted in your bulletin; such as reports on socials and reports and updates on projects is a great opportunity to save time on your club meeting agenda and have more time available for fun and fellowship.

Yours in KIN
Communications Director
