Hello PNW Key Clubbers,

It was so nice being able to meet more than 400 of you at Key Club Days over these past two weeks! Your spirit and engagement were infectious, and I am so appreciative that you took the opportunity to engage with the District. Whether you attended virtually or in-person, I hope you were able to make new connections and learn more about the resources we offer at PNW Key Club!

In addition to the learning we experienced and fun we had, we were able to contribute significantly to our District Project: Help End Hunger. Between our canned food drive and over $800 dollars in donations during our miracle minute, we were able to provide over 2,500 meals to families in need across the Pacific Northwest. This means we now have a grand total of 50,000 meals donated to families in need since April 1st! I’m proud to say that we are on track to meet our goal of 100,000 meals by DCON 2023. I have been impressed with all of the work each of you have done to Help End Hunger this service year.

As our clubs begin meeting regularly once again, now is the time to begin planning ahead! This includes, but is not limited to, Kiwanis One Day, recruitment season, club officer elections, running for Executive Office, and DCON 2023, which will be from March 31st-April 2nd in Seattle, WA. You must invest time now into planning these events to be sure they are as effective as possible. Please remember that you don’t have to plan these events on your own; PNW Key has created a variety of resources over the years to make your job easier. Whether it is our Kiwanis-family Resources that outline how to reach out to local Kiwanis Clubs, or our MGRC Guide on how to see membership growth in your club, we can provide you with tried-and-true tips to help your club grow.

To keep in-the-know about these resources, webinars, and opportunities, please follow us on Instagram (@pnwkeyclub) and continue to read Biweekly Updates! If you ever have any questions, ideas, or concerns, feel free to reach out to me at governor@pnwkeyclub.org.

The Membership Growth and Reactivation Committee’s (MGRC) Fall’s Membership Campaign has been officially released!! This Membership Campaign will give you and your clubs additional resources and new ideas for increasing engagement, recruitment, and retention throughout the school year. The resources included in the campaign will help your Key Clubbers learn how to become leaders, how to provide service to your community, and understand the importance of being a part of Key Club. The MGRC committee has been working hard to provide you with new resources that will help you charter and reactivate Key Clubs in your area! Be sure to utilize all these resources that can help your clubs progress and grow so we can grow our Key Club community. All resources can be found on the MGRC Linktree, which is linked below.

As the 2022-2023 fiscal year begins, Key Club International expects all clubs to pay dues this fall.

As with previous years, dues are $12.50, with $5.50 being for the PNW District and $7.00 for Key Club International, per member. Clubs are able to increase this amount if needed, and the money in excess of $12.50 can be used by the club to fund any additional costs, as allowed by your club bylaws.

It is encouraged that clubs submit dues by the Early Bird deadline, November 1st, to allow your club to qualify for the Early Bird Dues Patch as well as be entered into a raffle to win a Key Club spirit bundle and pizza party! The regular dues deadline is December 1st, 2022. Dues are paid through the Membership Update Center (MUC) to Key Club International. The club secretary and faculty advisor should have access to the MUC.

The MUC is now open for dues collection for the 2022-2023 year. Active clubs are able to update their membership rosters. We highly encourage the club secretary or faculty advisor to clean up the membership roster and delete any members who may have graduated in the past year.

More information about dues can be found below.

In early summer the Executive Committee hosted an Officer Training Conference (OTC) for officers without Lieutenant Governors and officers that were unable to attend their LTG’s OTC. Now that this has been conducted, we have a recording and slides available for you below.

This training is split up into sections, including Key Club 101, general officer training, and position-specific training. If you are an officer, we would advise that you watch any section that would be of interest to you, in addition to viewing the training for your specific officer position. Hopefully, these resources will help you learn more about your position while getting tips and tricks from the Execs. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you have about this content.

Our District Project, Help End Hunger is more than just a project, it’s a movement. Originally created with the intent of providing local relief to communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, the continued plague of food insecurity has provided reason for this district project to be extended into the 2022-2023 term. This project provides meaningful and unique opportunities to get involved through multiple vehicles of service. Throughout the service year, Key Clubbers are especially encouraged to participate in service projects at their local food banks, through food packaging, food drives, monetary donations, and educational events. The District’s goal for the 2022-2023 service year is to provide 100,000 meals to those in need! Our District’s contributions to this goal will be calculated through monetary and food donations recorded in secretary reports, so please help us reach our goal this year!

To get started, you can see past resources from the 2021-2022 District Project Committee below at our Issuu page. They have published numerous resources, ranging from General Fundraising Guides to articles in past ESPRESSOs. Two particularly useful resources are their one pager and Food Bank Tracker, which I’ve linked below for your convenience. The time to get involved in the District Project is now! You are always welcome to reach out to our District Project Committee Chair, Pauline Adonis, at project@pnwkeyclub.org with any questions, ideas, or suggestions.

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 governor@pnwkeyclub.org or District Administrator Brian Egger at administrator@pnwkeyclub.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.
