Greetings, PNW Key Clubbers,
I know this is a busy time of year for Key Clubbers, with all of the approaching deadlines tomorrow, February 1st, 2023. We have our annual DCON Registration, District Executive Candidacy, Kiwanis Scholarship, and DCON awards deadlines!
So, I want to say thank you to all of you for your hard work making events like DCON possible. I am thrilled to announce that we already have over 1,000 members registered to attend our District Convention in-person this year in Seattle, WA, and we expect more to register in the coming days. Now is the time to finalize your rooming and submit registration if you have not already! Don’t forget to include your advisor on all DCON communication and registration information so they are kept in the loop.
As a past Club President myself, I know how stressful it can be with all these deadlines coming up at once. But, I can promise you it will be well worth it once it is over! The memories you’ll make at DCON and the awards you may receive make all the effort more than worth it in the end. Just keep pushing through these final two months, and please, if I can help you in any way, let me know. You can always reach me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With that, thank you, and I hope to see you at DCON 2023, in Seattle, WA!
DCON Registration and Election forms are tomorrow, Wednesday, February 1st! DCON 2023 will be held in person from March 31-April 2, 2023 in Seattle, WA. For the first time in three years, Key Clubbers from all over the Pacific Northwest will meet fully in person and experience everything DCON has been known to offer.
The theme for this year’s convention is Once Upon a Service, where you’ll spend the weekend learning more about Key Club, engaging in impactful service, and, of course, enjoying your time at the Governor’s Ball before the clock strikes 12. Linked below is the Call to Convention Video and Webinar Recording, where you can learn more about the convention, as well as the Registration and Election packets. The registration, candidate, and award forms must be submitted by Wednesday, February 1st, so please plan accordingly.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Convention Chair Lynnsay Pham at email@example.com with any questions or concerns. Any questions about the Elections Packet can be directed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. We cannot wait to see you at DCON 2023!
Do you want to meet hundreds of Key Clubbers from around the world? Do you want to explore everything Anaheim, CA, has to offer, including a day at Disneyland? Then, you should attend our International Convention (ICON), which will be from July 4-9, 2023 in Anaheim, CA. While the PNW ICON District Tour information is soon-to-be-released, the ICON Scholarship provided by Key Club International is now open.
The ICON Scholarship gives Key Clubbers a partial subsidy for their ICON registration cost. The application will close on Friday, February 24th, at 8:59PM PST. More information can be found at the link below!
We are grateful and excited to announce that the majority of clubs have paid their dues! With this wonderful achievement, we are launching a new campaign to increase our District’s membership.
As you may know, clubs are able to continue adding and paying for members after initial dues payment. To help encourage clubs to do this, we are offering a new and exciting incentive! Any dues-paid clubs that add 10 or more paid members to their roster by March 1st will be entered in a raffle for a pizza party, recognition at DCON, and front row seating during Opening and Closing Sessions!
Did your club miss the deadline to apply for the Pacific Northwest Opportunity Fund, but still wants to perform a high impact service project? Well, you’re in luck!
Key Club International has opened their applications for their Youth Opportunities Fund, which is a grant for clubs to perform high impact service projects. The only requirements for the project are to have Key Club member engagement, fill a need within your community, support health, education or youth leadership development, and spend all money granted within 12 months of when the grant is awarded. The application is due on Wednesday, March 1st, 2023. You can learn more at the link below.
We are pleased to report that nearly all Divisions have Lieutenant Governors now, and some for the first time in many years. This is all thanks to the help of the advisors and Key Clubbers that nominated eligible students. However, we still need your help! Lieutenant Governors are vital to the health of each Key Club division, and serve as the critical connection between the club and district levels. Clubs in divisions that have no Lieutenant Governors lack a consistent source of relevant updates, resources, and leadership.
The following divisions have Lieutenant Governor vacancies.
- Division 9
- Division 22/24
- Division 34
- Division 42c
- Division 52
- Division 74
- Division 78
If you or anyone you know is from one of these divisions and is interested in serving as a Lieutenant Governor during the 2022-2023 year, please contact me at email@example.com or District Administrator Brian Egger at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. I can assure you that serving on the District Board is an incredible experience and will help you develop your leadership skills.
