Parsippany’s Gordon Meth Named Governor of NJ District Kiwanis

PARSIPPANY — Parsippany’s Gordon Meth was sworn as New Jersey District Governor at the 102nd NJ District Kiwanis Convention held in Princeton on Saturday, August 24.

Meth has been a member of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany for fourteen years. He is also a member of three other Kiwanis clubs.

He served as Lieutenant Governor for Division 9 from 2011-2014, Governor Elect for 2014-2015, Governor for 2015-2016, and Immediate Past Governor since.

Professionally, Meth is an expert witness on Civil Engineering matters for Robson Forensic.

Originally from Canada he moved to New Jersey 23 years ago. Gordon and his wife, Suzanne, has two teenage sons, one of whom will be attending NJIT next month, and one who is very active in Key Club at Parsippany High School.

Everyone who has served on the New Jersey District Board with Gordon knows that he believes strongly in benchmarks and data. Simply put, he believes that that which isn’t measured is rarely improved.

Nicolas Limanov, Carol Tiesi, Michael Mulhaul, Gordon Meth, Karen Gajewski and Frank Cahill proudly displays the “Home Club” banner. The banner was turned over to Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany from outgoing Governor’s Home Club, Glen Ridge.

Meth also believes that the Kiwanis Student Leadership Programs (Key Club, Circle K, Builders Club, K-Kids Club, and Aktion Club) are the best gift back to society, due to the social responsibility and leadership skills Kiwanis provides.

Meth wanted to be Governor again because as a Lieutenant Governor, he didn’t really hit his stride until his second year! Meth was far more effective being able to hit the ground running. Having been Governor only two years ago and having been on the District Board for the past seven years straight, his knowledge is still fresh! One of his priorities will be to start a program for future Kiwanis Leaders, so that they can be trained and begin working together long before they are thrust into leadership positions.

Meth also wants to introduce substantial new blood into out various committees at the District level, train new leadership and get fresh ideas flowing. He plans to have a Growth Summit for clubs below charter strength and develop a tool box and training to help them grow and expand their membership.

Governor Elect, District 9.  Also Michael Mulhaul received the nomination from New Jersey District to run for International Trustee to be held in Indianapolis in June 2020.
