Robert’s Rules of Order As most of us know, Key Club meetings are held under Parliamentary procedure, commonly following Robert’s Rules of Order. Below in bulleted format are just more points commonly used during Key Club meetings. 

Motion: To propose a decision or form of action, one says “I move …” and the motion must always be seconded before the governor opens the floor. More than one motion can be made in between another. (Ex. If one wanted to move to condense the time of discussion), then the most recent motion must be dealt with first.

Point of Information: This is called when someone wants the motion to be repeated.

Call the Question: If one feels that a discussion is being prolonged and almost everyone seems to have made a decision, they can call the question (must be seconded) and debate will end. Voting then proceeds.

Voting: voting is either based on voice.

Division of the House: When voting by voice is unclear, a division of the house is called and voting is made based on visible votes by ballots or raised hands.

 

Recess: A motion can be made (and seconded) to take a break during meetings.

Propose an amendment: To propose / amend a new amendment, not originally on the list, one must first submit a form to the chairs of the House of Delegate session.

Adopt: This motion is made and seconded when one wants to accept a proposed report without discussion.

Nominate: Another person can nominate another to represent them or a certain activity. This nomination (I…(insert name) from (insert place) nominate…) must also be seconded.

Adjourn: A meeting/session is adjourned once someone makes a motion for adjournment and it is seconded.

To make a motion, second, or speak on behalf of it, the chair must always be addressed in a proper manner. A motion cannot be discussed until the chair repeats the motion and announces that discussion can begin. Note that if you are addressing a point, you should stand up.

On the week of July 1 to July 4th, the New York District had a District tour experience at Disneyworld's many parks from the Typhoon Lagoon to Hollywood Studios to the Animal Kingdom. It was a true bonding experience in the sun and sudden rain.


2012 International Convention In Orlando, Florida. Page 9

The 2012 International Convention, held in Orlando Florida definitely took my breath away. This experience not only enabled districts to bond with other districts of 33 different nations, but it also brought together our own. From the District cheers to all the different pins received, we were Key Clubbing all the way.


ICON Experience The Experience One can’t forget the amazing dances as we danced to eliminate and danced from the 80’s to the 21st Century. I’m sure every single Key Clubber during that week also bought our hearts out in the Key Club Store. Every session from the opening to recognition to the closing was phenomenal thanks to Keynote Speaker Eden Sher giving us such a innovative speech as well as our Entertainer: Justin “Kredible” Willman performing a magic show that definitely made the whole audience stand on their feet. Aside from fun, we also participated in voting for the new international board in the District caucus sessions, nominating conference, Meet the Candidates session, and finally House of Delegates. The House of Delegates, though taking a very long time was one of my favorite experiences, because we learned so much about politics, itself as we moved to approve/deny amendments proposed. The informative workshops were definitely a plus as well.

CONGRATULATIONS! Congratulations to the IP International President’s Annie Lewandowski’s 20112012 International board for leading Key Club International for a successful year. Congratulations to IP International Trustee Nick DePorzio for serving the New York District. Congratulations to New York’s Diamond Clubs recognized by International: North Shore High School Ogdensburg Free Academy Congratulations to Robert F. Lucas award recipients IP LTG of Division 9: Helen Chen IP LTG of Division 11: Emma Cheng IP LTG of Division 15: Katie Coley Congratulations to Jack Veilhauer for being elected International Trustee form the New York District. Congratulations to the 2012-2013 Key Club International board led by International President Rebecca Riley.

With that said, I am definitely going back to ICON next year and seniors, Key Club and service isn’t over. As 2011-2012 Circle K International President Steven Spriggs and Kiwanis International presidentdesignate Mr. Thomas Dejulio said, there is always Circle K and Kiwanis to show that service lives on within our hearts and our purpose is to serve and lead for the betterment of our future. -Amber Lee District Secretary
