Note the new Kiwanis Pin or Seal logo above. Notice the pin is tilted 15º to the left. The tilt may be left or right and is preferred but not required on merchandise.
In February, 2016, Kiwanis International issued a Brand Guide. The guide is intended to standardize use of Kiwanis symbols in an effort to deliver a consistent message. The guide is detailed in that it specifies colors, fonts, spacing, and minimum sizes for the Kiwanis logos.

Immediately your stationary, letter head, business cards, etc., are obsolete. Don’t destroy them. Use the old until supplies are depleted, but next time use the new logos.
The well known birdcage logo is now obsolete. It is being retired.
The official Kiwanis logo now includes both the seal and the name–
(Spacing rules require there be space for the small S on all four diagonals. The minimum size for the logo is 1.25 in. wide.)
The Kiwanis wordmark is still available. The minimum width is 0.25 in.
The fonts they recommend, Knockout and Avenir, are not available on my word processor, but the recommended alternates are: Arial, Arial Bold, and Haettenschweiler.
A full selection of logos can be downloaded from Kiwanis International. Click here. (Note that you are looking at page 5 of the Kiwanis logos. Other pages have logos of other Kiwanis entities.)
They are available in black, or inverted in white on gray, in blue and gold, or all blue. There’s also a stacked logo.
The Kiwanis logo can be customized to create logos for districts or clubs. The text should appear below the word Kiwanis in Avenir Next LT Pro Regular font (or Arial as a substitute) in smaller type. If the name is long, the text may appear on two lines, but may not be longer than the word Kiwanis.

Updated logos are available for all the SLPs on the Kiwanis.org website. Special logos are available for clubs celebrating an anniversary.
There are several vertical logos as for a ringbinder.
You should be able to download the logo you want from the website above. You probably want .png files as .jpg files gradually degrade as you manipulate them. I found it easiest to download the logos as jpg files and then copy them to Paint and save them as a .png file.
