Division 39 North, Another month has sped on by us too soon! Hopefully homecoming traditions, mixed with a little bit of homework and a lot of socializing with friends, haven’t gotten in the way of your Key Clubbing! In addition to Key Club, I have been busy with another club I am involved with, Model UN, which at my school hosted out first ever conference of about 170 people- a large feat for a club with only about 10 active members! I have also been avidly watching the RANGERS win the Division Series against the Rays! Let’s see if they can make it to the World Series again this year—wouldn’t that be something! Thank you to the 8 schools that made the journey to come out the Fall Training Conference on September 17th; it ran wonderfully and I hope everyone was able to take something away from it! Don’t forget, our next PCM will be on October 22nd from 12pm until 1pm at La Hacienda Ranch in Colleyville, TX. Don’t forget to keep staying active in your communities and volunteering whenever you can, your help is always appreciated! Besides, who doesn’t like making someone else’s life just a little bit easier?

Alexandra Yauch 2011-2012 Lt. Governor Division 39N Texas-Oklahoma District Key Club Ever since I was about 6 years old, I have been a huge Texas Rangers baseball fan. At Fan Appreciation Day on Sept. 25th, 2011, I won a signed, game worn jersey from 1st baseman/catcher Mike Napoli! UPCOMING EVENTS!
Back-to-School LTG Club Visit Tour! Coming to YOUR school this September, October or November; this is one “concert” your club can’t miss! This may take place at a meeting, service event or even at a social. Your Lieutenant Governor (that’s me!) is your link to the Texas-Oklahoma District and this is a very special time to meet her (me) and ask questions. Kiwanis Zone Conference: Saturday, October 8th, 2011—from ~8:30AM to 3PM at Oak View Baptist Church//1004 S.Story Rd.//Irving, TX; cost is $12 for refreshments and lunch (ask your Kiwanis club to sponsor you!). Great way to learn more about the K-Family. For more information, ask me or your Sponsoring Kiwanis Club OCTOBER PCM: Saturday, October 22nd from 12PM-1PM at La Hacienda Ranch in Colleyville, TX. Important things will be brought up and there may very well just be a costume contest! AT LEAST ONE REPRESENTATIVE FROM YOUR SCHOOL MUST COME.

Congratulations for raising over $1,700 on September 17th and 18th at the National Drag Boat Races by selling t-shirts and sodas to attendees!
Is this worth all the time and effort? I won’t lie to you; this position is more time consuming than any other officer position, but that’s just it, this isn’t your regular old officer position. This is something new, something exciting, something Key Club. Look around at the other clubs in your school and I can almost guarantee you NO OTHER club at your school has a LTG position or a hierarchy quite like Key Club International. You can meet so many new people as you grow as a lead; colleges love it when they see you immersed in your community and helping out; the scholarships are plentiful; and you can see the impact you can make from all the hours of service you’ve done! Besides that, as an LTG you will get that feeling of being fulfilled almost weekly—let me tell you from personal experience, it’s one of the best feelings of all. Did I forget to mention that this is the best decision I’ve made throughout high school and I’ve never regretted it one bit? Yeah, it’s definitely worth it.
Duties: Organize and put together the district convention Create a Monthly Newsletter to send out to all clubs in your Division Hold PCM(Presidential Council Meetings) throughout the year Have an FTC(Fall Training Conference) in order to train all the officers within your division Hold a DEC to elect the next Lieutenant Governor Visit EACH club in your division Contact clubs weekly and monthly in your division and help them with anything they may need
What is an LTG? (Lieutenant Governor) How can I run? At the DEC (Division Election Conference) in January or February. Your club MUST be in good standing so make sure that you’ve paid dues and your club has submitted them—THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. All candidates MUST be non-seniors (8th graders, freshman, sophomores, and juniors are all eligible to run for LTG; seniors cannot run since they will be graduating). Closer to the DEC, a LTG Candidacy Form will be sent out via. E-mail and you must fill it out and bring it to the meeting. You must either be endorsed by your club (each club can only endorse one candidate) OR you can run off the floor- you must get a second for this. EACH club in good standing in the Division can bring as many people as they would like to the DEC, but only 4 members can vote as delegates, so make sure to have your posse of supporters.
Are you thinking about running for the Lieutenant Governor position of Division 39N next year? Or do you have questions, comments, or concerns?
