Club Health Assessments 

Why do a Club Health Assessment?

The Club Health Assessment is intended to be a club-driven tool to be completed as part of "regular maintenance". The benefits are below: 

1. Promotes open and honest dialogue among club members about various aspects of the club
2. Helps you identify your club's strengths and areas for improvement  
3. Helps you make a plan for addressing any issues and planning for the future 
4. Helps you identify Kin Canada resources that your club can make use of 
5. Provides you with a tool to track your club's overall health over time
6. Helps your Deputy Governor and Governor track the overall health of the Zones and District  

Tip: don't wait until something is wrong to use to Club Health Assessment. Ideally, you should consider it a proactive and regular "checkup" each year—just like going to the doctor for your annual physical. 

Consider planning to complete the assessment at the start and the end of the Kin year or at a time that works best for your club.  

Completing the Club Health Assessment

There are two ways to complete the Club Health Assessment: 

Option 1: Complete the Club Health Assessment using the fillable pdf version

Note: there are a few ways to make use of the pdf version:

a) Email the fillable PDF copy of the assessment to all members and ask them to complete it individually. Decide who they will send the completed assessment to and provide them with that person's contact information. This person could be your Club President, Deputy Governor, District Club Support Director, a facilitator, or anyone else who your club finds trustworthy. This option allows them to remain anonymous if they choose. 

b) Print out the PDF and have all members of the club fill it out individually in their own time.  Decide who they will send the completed assessment to and provide them with that persons contact information. This person could be your Club President, Deputy Governor, District Club Support Director, a facilitator, or anyone else who your club finds trustworthy. This option allows them to remain anonymous if they choose. 

c) Set aside time in advance to complete the assessment during a meeting. Print off enough copies for everyone and ask them to fill it out during club time and hand it back to you or a designated person that you trust. This could be your Deputy Governor, District Club Support Director, a facilitator, or anyone else who your club finds trustworthy. 

d) Set aside time in advance to invite a facilitator to your meeting who can walk through the questions with your members in person. This is a group conversation-based approach. 

Option 2: Complete the online version. Select your District below to begin:  

District 1  
District 2  
District 3  
District 4
District 5  
District 6  
District 7  
District 8

Note: the online version will be submitted directly to your District Club Support Director so be sure to select the correct District if you are opting to use the online version.  

Simply email the link to all of your members and ask them to complete the online form/assessment. This option allows the members to remain anonymous if they choose. Your District Club Support Director will evaluate the results for you and provide recommendations unless you make a different plan with them. You could also ask them to make time to visit your club (or arrange a DG visit) if possible to discuss the results in person. 

 

Evaluating the results of the Club Health Assessment

Once you have decided who will receive all responses, you need to determine how you wish to evaluate and present/discuss them with your club. There are a few options: 

a) Receive them from whoever your club sent them to, review them yourself, and draw conclusions to be presented/discussed at your next club meeting. Best practice is to compile the findings into a document and circulate it in advance so your members have time to think about them. Set aside time on your agenda to talk about what works well and what needs improvement. 

b) Arrange for a non-biased facilitator from outside the club to evaluate the results. Ask them to circulate the results in advance and set aside time on your agenda for the facilitator to come in and discuss them. 

c) Arrange for a non-biased outside person to receive, evaluate, and compile the results. Ask them to send them to you and lead the discussion at your meeting yourself.

d) Any other method that you think would work best for your club.
