Greetings, PNW Key Clubbers,
Wow! Our clubs have been incredibly busy recently. Throughout this past month, I’ve witnessed each and every one of our clubs hard at work to serve their homes, schools, and communities. Our clubs have participated in Trick or Treat for UNICEF, executed impactful service projects to Help End Hunger, planned fundraisers for DCON 2023, paid dues, and so much more. I know now can be a hectic time between school and Key Club, so be proud of everything you have accomplished!
And, while it might seem early, it is incredibly important to begin thinking ahead. Now is the time to prepare for the 2023-2024 service year. You should consider what goals you have, what positions you may seek, and what you need to do to get there.
One especially relevant thing to think about is Running for Higher Office! Lieutenant Governor elections will begin taking place in December, so now is the time to consider running for LTG. If you or anyone you know is interested in the position, please reach out to your Division’s current Lieutenant Governor as soon as possible. If you would like more information before making a decision, I’ve attached the LTG Candidate Packet below for your viewing. If you are a club officer, please ensure your club has a say in electing next year’s officers by designating two delegates to vote in your division’s LTG election as soon as possible.
Similarly, if you are interested in running for District Executive Office or International Office, please find the DCON 2023 Election Packet later in this Biweekly Update, or on the DCON 2023 website.
Finally, if your club has yet to pay dues, it is time to begin seriously taking action to collect and submit payments through the Membership Update Center. Fundraising and planning for District Convention 2023 in Seattle, Washington, should have also begun taking place by now. Since this is the first fully in-person convention since 2019, you do not want to miss out!
I cannot wait to see what all of you continue to accomplish between now and the end of this service year. If you are ever in need of support, or have any questions, concerns, or ideas, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
