2021 ASPAC eConvention

46th Annual Convention of Kiwanis Asia-Pacific

Dear Kiwanians and Friends of Kiwanis,

Greetings ! and a very warm welcome to the official website of the 46th Annual Convention of Kiwanis Asia-Pacific (ASPAC), aka “2021 ASPAC eConvention”.

The 2021 ASPAC eConvention is special, unique, and historic because, for the 1st time:-

  • the eConvention will be conducted fully on-line via the Zoom software;
  • the eConvention will be organised by a multi-district special committee;
  • attendees to the eConvention pay only a USD10* registration fee.

Nevertheless, the special committee will endeavour to incorporate as many of the features of our exciting regular ASPAC Convention of the past years as we can.

Therefore, we urge all Kiwanians to register to attend the 2021 ASPAC eConvention, and also to invite their fellow club members, family and friends to register too.  Thank you.

Yours in Kiwanis,

Lee Kuan Yong
Chair, Special Committee
on 2021 ASPAC eConvention

Ken Alovera
Kiwanis Asia-Pacific (ASPAC) Chair

*Note: Voting delegates and delegates-at-large pay an extra USD20 to defray the cost of the voting system and software.

Making Yu Qing’s Concert Wish Come True at the

2021 ASPAC ECONVENTION !

Kiwanis Asia-Pacific (ASPAC) is proud to collaborate with Make-A-Wish Malaysia to fulfil the wish of 9-year old Leong Yu Qing to perform a concert for a 1,000 audience.

In the west of Sendai City, you see these spectacular “snow monsters” also called “ice monsters” in Mount Zao.

The 46th ASPAC Convention was originally scheduled to be held in Sendai, Japan in March 2021, and hosted by the Japan District.  However, due to the Covid-19 global pandemic, the ASPAC Executive Board resolved to cancel this “in-person” convention, and to hold the on-line 2021 ASPAC eConvention instead.  The 2021 ASPAC eConvention will feature the Sendai Tsunami 10th Anniversary Memorial Program on the 1st day of the eConvention on 28th May 2021.

Making Yu Qing’s Concert Wish Come True at the

2021 ASPAC ECONVENTION !

Kiwanis Asia-Pacific (ASPAC) is proud to collaborate with Make-A-Wish Malaysia to fulfil the wish of 9-year old Leong Yu Qing to perform a concert for a 1,000 audience.

Yu Qing has been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia, and is currently undergoing treatment at a hospital in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Make-A-Wish Malaysia is a charity organisation set up in 2010 to grant wishes to Malaysian children battling critical illnesses. A wish is not merely something nice to have. It is a wondrous journey of anticipation and empowerment which helps awaken critically ill children’s imagination, builds courage and inspires these children to dream. Knowing that their heartfelt wish will soon be granted, these children start to feel joy and hope, replacing anxiety and fear as they continue to face their medical battle.

A wish creates amazing memories which continue to inspire long after the wish has been granted.

“When I heard about Make-A-Wish Malaysia’s program to grant Yu Qing’s wish to have a concert for a 1,000 audience, I immediately thought of streaming Yu Qing’s concert at the 2021 ASPAC eConvention”, said Lee Kuan Yong, Chair of the ASPAC Special Committee on the eConvention.

Make-A-Wish Malaysia CEO, Irene Tan, agreed that it was a wonderful idea for both organisations to collaborate to make Yu Qing’s wish come true.

The Motto of Kiwanis is “Serving the Children of the World”, and this collaboration with Make-A-Wish Malaysia is so timely and fitting for both organisations.

We therefore invite Kiwanians in the Asia-Pacific Region (ASPAC) and from around the world, to attend the 2021 ASPAC eConvention in large numbers, more than 1,000 attendees if possible, in order to make Yu Qing’s wish come true.
