The Junior Civitan Creed tells the world who we are as an organization. By memorizing this creed, you can become a member of the Creed Club and spread the news of Junior Civitan. This year the International Board set a goal of inducting 500 new Creed Club members, and we need your help to reach this goal. I encourage all of you to join, if you have not already done so. Make it your personal goal to have at least 20 percent of your home club or district members join the Creed Club.
Joining the Creed Club is quite easy. Just memorize the creed and then recite it to an advisor, governor, chair or international officer. Then the newly inducted member should report to International by filling out the Creed Club form. They will receive a card and a flashy, one-of-a-kind, Junior Civitan Creed Club pin!
Encourage every Junior Civitan you know to join Creed Club. Promote it at district meetings, projects, officer training workshops and convention. Our creed is very important to us because it states exactly what we are about and our values and goals.
You may need some help encouraging others to join the Creed Club. You can do this with: a Creed Club jail, extended curfew at conventions for those in Creed Club, an ice cream cone or snack at club meetings for members of Creed Club, raffles that only Creed Club members can participate in, or even a dollar off dues if you are a member of Creed Club. Be creative. You can do many things to get people to join!
This year we are going to reach our highest goal ever. I’m sure of it! Just remember to let your lieutenant governor and club president know how easy it is to become a member of the Creed Club.
