While Herb Plambeck was Governor of the Nebraska-Iowa District in 1965, he became aware of districts having a Past Lt. Governors Association. In visiting with then District Secretary, Byrnard Smith, they came up with the idea of having such an organization in the NE-IA District. Governor Herb asked Past Lt. Governor Al Parmenter of Des Moines to act as chairman and to start an organization here. The first meeting was held at district convention on September 21, 1965. Much work and ideas went into making this first meeting a success. Al Parmenter of Des Moines was elected as president; Herrold Mann of Des Moines as vice-president; and Wendell Tutt of Indianola was elected secretary and treasurer. These men were elected from the same geographic area so it would be easier for them to work together
Membership in the Nebraska-Iowa Past Lt. Governor’s Association is open to all who have previously served as Lt. Governors in this Kiwanis district, or another.
