Club Support

Fellow Kin;

I am honoured to serve as your District Club Support Director for the Kin year 2018 / 2019. I’d like to Thank Governor Richard for the opportunity to be a part of the team.

Kin Career

I joined the Kinsmen Club of Gander (No longer active) in 1984. During that time I served on the club executive as Director and on Zone executive as Treasurer. Unfortunately due to relocation I left Kin in 1988. After a 17 year hiatus I found my way back to kin again in 2005 joining the Kinsmen Club of St. John’s. In 2016 I made a decision to move to the CBS Kin Club. A club which I feel is a better fit for my Kin life. I enjoy being a member of the Family of Kin. I feel I have a lot more to give and am excited for the opportunity’s ahead. I have held the positions of club Director, Treasurer, Registrar, Vice President, and President. I was awarded Kinsmen of the year for the 2013 – 2015 Kin years. I have served as Deputy Governor of Zone D for 4 consecutive years and loved every term as much as the last. I served as communications/Atlantic Tides Editor on Past Governor Brenda Dooley’s team in 2010-2011 and again with Past Governor Peggy Hefler’s team in 2013-2014.In my forth year as DG I also was elected as Vice Governor for D7 for the year 2015/16 and Governor for the Kin year 2018/17. The following year I was honored to be the District Service Director on Governor Victoria Andrews team for the Kin year 2017/18. I have attended 11 Spring Zone Conferences, 12 Fall Leadership Conferences, 13 District Conferences, and 4 National Conventions.
On the personal side, I am the very proud father of two grown men, Nicholas age 28, and Alexander age 26. They both are supportive of my Kin career. I have been employed for 37 years with Xerox Canada as a Technical Service Representative, and I still love what I do. You can reach me anytime at . I am always available to you whenever help is needed.
Yours in Kin
Terry Janes
