Hello CNH Secretaries! (And Goodbye) Although DCON has not occurred yet, I say goodbye because this is my last insert to the District Newsletter!

To the newly elected secretaries, I hope that you are excited and prepared for your upcoming term! Know that you hold a huge responsibility as one of the most important members of your club. Good luck with all of your MRFs, your minutes, and more! Remember, if you need help you have access to the various resources on the CNH Cyberkey (cnhkeyclub.org), your Lt.

Keep the strength and status of your club well and high and help prepare those who you leave it behind to! Thank you for your efforts and accomplishments this past year and I hope to see you at the upcoming District Convention! (If you do attend, visit the Secretaries Workshop!)

CONGRATULATIONS

treasurers 2009-10 WELCOMEtreasurers 2010-11

Treasurers, it has been quite a year! I hope your term is wrapping up smoothly and your club is transitioning well. Thank you so much for all you have done for your club and the Cali-Nev-Ha District. Without you, we would not have accomplished so much. Here are a few of the many things you have accomplished:

Welcome to your new position and congratulations on being elected! You have already proven to be a great leader by wanting to go beyond being an ordinary member to serve your community better! I wish you luck your responsibilities and I am sure you will improve Key Club even more! I have some tips for you to start off your new position:

Club Membership:

Make Yourself Comfortable: th

This year, we have 39,793 members as of March 18 . We were a handful short of meeting our goal of 40,000 members, but this is a CNH record! We have the most membership count this year in Cali-Nev-Ha history! Congratulations!

District Fundraising: This year as a District, our goal was to raise $75,000 for Cali-Nev-Ha’s Pediatric Trauma Program. We have greatly surpassed this goal! The total amount raised will be announced at District Convention as well as in the CNH Yearbook coming soon. Thank you so much for cooperating and raising funds within your divisions! Congratulations!

Setting the Example As your term is wrapping up, please assist the future of your club. Always offer a hand to your new, future leaders following your term. Without the help of experienced leaders, new officers will tend to be confused and too shy to ask for your help. Offer your best advice to them. Although your term is almost to an end, your actions will forever affect the future of your Key Club—you will never stop being a leader.

Again, Congratulations! We all are very proud of these accomplishments made possible by YOU! You have proven yourself to be a great contributor to your community and I hope you take these experiences along with you. I wish you the best in all your future endeavors wherever you are headed, whether it is another Key Club leadership role, college, and everything else. Bless you all!

Be familiar with your treasurer responsibilities. There are many resources on cnhkeyclub.org to aid you. You may also ask your Immediate Past officers for any advice, and I am sure they will be more than happy to assist you. Your returning club advisors will also know a great deal of what your responsibilities are to your respective club. Establish some goals you want accomplished during your term.

Join the Reflector: There is a new reflector just for you! The link is found below. After joining this reflector, you will be exposed to valuable resources, and connect with the Treasurers throughout this whole district! After District Convention, you can meet your new District Treasurer and ask him/her for any help.

http://groups.google.com/group/cnh-kc-treasurers Prepare a Club Budget: Your new board must be very excited for the new Key Club term! During your next Board Meeting, discuss and estimate the expenses for your Club in the upcoming year. Expenses include: paper costs, Fall Rally costs, transportation, spirit items, and DCON costs. Remember to establish a healthy bank account with your advisor or student body. Remember, advisors must be present when dealing with money. Ask your immediate past officers for old resources and their wisdom to compile a better estimate of funds needed to make your club prepared and efficient. It will look great for your Treasurer’s Binder if you have a Board-approved preliminary budget. In service and friendship, Jeremy Truong District Treasurer California-Nevada-Hawaii District Key Club International cnh.dt0910@gmail.com

WRITE ABOUT DISTRICT CONVENTION!

District Convention is coming up! I hope all of you are going to attend – I’ll see you there! DCON will definitely leave you with many memories, so write them all down and send in articles so that people who missed out will get to feel like they were in Sacramento too! Good luck on writing future articles!

WEBMASTERS

Please send in weblinks to the newly elected Technology Editor after DCON! Weblinks currently will not be accepted. Until then, keep on improving your websites! Try implementing a chatbox or revamping graphics. Good luck!

bulletinEDITORS

REMEMBER:   

Send it in to cnharticle@gmail.com, not my tech editor email! Please use the template that is available on the CyberKey! It makes my work compiling/editing the CNH Key a lot easier. You do not need to send in pictures to CNH Visuals if you want them to be put in the CNH Key. Simple copy them to the end of your article and I will use the picture.

YEARBOOK

As the Key Club year is drawing towards a close, your District Board is compiling a yearbook to wrap up and summarize all of your amazing efforts and contributions this year.

  

Always use Graphic Standards! Make sure your background is not too ―noisy‖ or distracting – it detracts from your main goal, which is to get information across! Your aim is to communicate, so use eye-catching ways to get everything through to your readers in the most simplistic way. Everything in this newsletter is a way to make it easier to read! Choose schemes. Color schemes, font schemes, design schemes. A scheme keeps it organized and aesthetically pleasing. If you use a bunch of colors & fonts, it makes it difficult to read.

NEWreflector

Since this is a yearbook for you, we want your suggestions!  

Is there anything that you want to see for the yearbook this year? What parts of last year’s yearbook would you like to see again this year?

ARE YOU TECH-SAVVILY CREATIVE? If you would like to contribute your creative graphic skills to help create the yearbook, please email me at cnh.dte0910@gmail.com to join the Yearbook committee!

Policies, International, & Elections

Page compiled by 2009-2010 Policies, International, and Elections Committee Questions for Candidates During Caucusing Every year at District Convention, all of the candidates participate in a caucus. At the beginning of the caucus, the candidates each give a speech about their reasons for running, their qualifications, their experience, etc. After the speeches, there will be a question and answer period, in which anyone can ask the candidates appropriate questions. Below is a list of acceptable questions for you to ask the candidates on the day of the caucus. On behalf of the district, we ask that you take the caucus sessions very seriously. This is the process that will lead to the election of our district’s next leaders, and we need to ensure that we elect the most responsible, efficient people to do their respective jobs. Please take a few minutes to look over the following questions: • What would it mean to you to be elected to this position? • What will you bring to our district? • What goals do you have for our district? • How do you plan on balancing academics with Key Club responsibilities, family, and other commitments?

COMMITTEE REPORT District Projects Page compiled by 2009-2010 District Projects Committee

ALCOHOLAWARENESSmonth April is Alcohol Awareness month and CNH Key Clubbers can join in on the fight against alcohol abuse! We hear about all the negatives of alcohol abuse in our Health classes and on those T.V. commercials. But many of us just live our lives not really caring about or realizing the extreme consequences of alcohol abuse. Think about it. What if your best friend turned into one of those statistics? Like becoming one of the millions of deaths each year due to drunk driving; or your fellow Key Clubber whose parents could be abusive because of alcohol abuse. You the Key Clubber have all of the power in the world to prevent and put and end to this. How? Consider a few of the service projects and educational opportunities that you can provide for others.  Hosting a Alcohol Abuse Awareness/Health Fair at school  Broadcast Alcohol Abuse Awareness Videos during the morning school T.V. Broadcast  Have Club members write an essay or a short blurb on their ―antidrug‖ and have them share it with the club  Make posters displaying statistics

UNICEF UNICEF has established its high school club program, where high schools can raise funds for UNICEF and join in on the education and activities of UNICEF. If you would like to start a UNICEF club at your school in partnership with you Key Club, visit unicefusa.org. UNICEF High School Clubs have the opportunity to educate their members on the different ways they cant aid children in other countries through UNICEF. Some of the resources could prove great use in your Key Club!

AWARENESS inourdistrict April is known with many other focuses for awareness within our District! In California, April is Earthquake Awareness Month! Currently, the scare of earthquakes has grown and you as a Key Clubber can help prepare others for these natural disasters. Consider preparing a safety/ evacuation plan for your family or school. You could even hold an earthquake drill in at school or at home in addition to showing some clips of the damage from other earthquakes such as in Haiti. April is Tsunami Awareness Month in the Aloha State of Hawai’i. Our District is located in the Pacific Ring of Fire and is subject to many of these natural disasters, including Hawai’i. Recently, Hawai’i faced a tsunami scare as a result from the earthquakes in Chile. Luckily, the waves did not prove destructive for the islands. Tsunamis are not always expected and Key Clubbers must prepare for the worst. You can create an emergency plan or consider preparing an emergency kit containing food, water, shelter, and light just in case. Taking these precautions could make all the difference for one’s life. In Nevada, it’s Donate Life Month! The Nevada Donor Network is promoting the donation of organs and tissue. Thousands of people die each day because of a shortage in tissue or organ transplants. Key Clubbers have the opportunity to change this and shine light on this issue. The Nevada Donor Network is holding a Creative Poster Contest for Nevada High School students to promote and express the importance of donations. Cash prizes will be awarded and the deadline in April 30th! For more information visit http:// www.nvdonor.org/events.html. Go out there and make a difference!

DCON is HERE!

UNICEF provides you with materials on subjects such as global education and education equality. The website has great service projects ideas that could help build a club towards international service. To view/download these resources, visit http:// volunteers.unicefusa.org/.

It is time to celebrate another wonderful year of your service to the homes, schools, and communities of the CNH District! At District Convention (DCON), Key Clubbers from all over the District come together for one weekend to learn how to better serve the world through workshops.

GLOBAL

This year, the District Projects Committee will present you with the 2010-2012 District Project! Is there any other way to learn about how to improve your service than to be educated on the District’s focus for the next two years? With your help, the new District Project will make a great difference. So, join us Friday night during the fourth and fifth workshop sessions to learn about this great cause. Find out what service projects you can do under the new District Project or what an impact it will make! As an added incentive, the District Projects Committee will provide you with a District Projects Ribbon to add to your name badge!

YOUTH

serviceday

―Global Youth Service Day is an annual campaign that celebrates and mobilizes the millions of children and youth who improve their communities each day of the year through service and service-learning. Established in 1988, GYSD is the largest service event in the world and is now celebrated in over 100 countries. On GYSD, children and youth address the world’s most critical issues in partnership with families, schools, community and faith-based organizations, businesses, and governments.‖ – Global Youth Service Day Website Teenagers all over the world will be performing service over these three days and CNH Key Clubbers are invited to join in on the party! This is a great opportunity to end the school year with a huge service project that your homes, schools, and communities can participate in. This is also a great opportunity for DCON attendees. DCON attendees may not be able to do a Kiwanis One Day Project because Kiwanis One Day falls on DCON weekend. If this is the case for your club or division, plan a project for these few days and combine these two amazing efforts into a huge celebration of service!

DP Chair Christian Rodriguez will also be hosting a Going Green Workshop! Learn how to improve your service while helping the Earth at the same time. It will be a fun and informative workshop that will have you walking out ―greening‖ with service! DCON also means the coming of the annual Walk-for-Life! Remember to bring the money you raised for PTP to the District Projects booth during DCON and remember to pack those walking shoes! The walk will take place Saturday afternoon, a change from previous years. The District Projects Committee can’t wait for you to join them for the stroll around the Sacramento Convention Center. It’s going to be a blast!

COMMITTEE REPORT Kiwanis Family & Foundation Page compiled by 2009-2010 Kiwanis Family & Foundation Committee

Hello Key Clubbers! It’s that time again the end of the (Key Club) year, DCON around the corner and clubs wrapping up their activities. I hope all of you have had an amazing year with your Kiwanis Family!

CIRCLE K Did you know there was a service program after Key Club? I sure did! And I hope all of you will join it. It’s called Circle-K and no it’s not the chain of convenience stores! It has over 13 thousand members and is an international organization just like Key Cub.

Make sure you go see the Kiwanis Family & Foundation workshop at District Convention to learn more! Join Circle-K and if you don’t go to college Kiwanis when you get the chance (I know I will). I hope you all have had an amazing year!

They have their own divisions, districts and international level and is structured just like Key Club is. They also have their own District Convention and all the fun events that we have in Key Club with a college flavor on it. Their motto is ―Live to Serve, Love to Serve‖ and thus fosters the same spirit to community service that Key Club does.

David Limjoco 2009-2010 CNH Kiwanis Family and Foundations Committee Chair

The organization overall is an experience so once you go to college at least go check it out for a few meetings and decide if you want to continue your stay in the Kiwanis Family. I know you won’t regret it.

Though Circle-K has it’s differences in that it is a smaller organization though with that you can connect with many people more easily than in Key Club with smaller conventions and such.

Member Recognition

DISTRICT convention    

New Officers! Make sure to attend the ―Planning for the Finish Line‖ workshop to learn how to eligible for awards in the upcoming year! The Member Recognition Chair will also be giving a presentation on Active Appreciation! This is something every Key Clubber should learn about to thank those who have helped them through the year. Prepared Orators! Don’t forget to check-in at District Convention so we know you are in attendance. The MR Committee will need a few judges at DCON to look at scrapbooks, judge Prepared Oratory, and a few other things. If you are interested in helping out, keep your eyes peeled for any District Board member to point you too the right direction. SPIRIT! We’ve been through this before at fall rally but this time you will be cheering as clubs. The clubs with the most spirit throughout DCON and at general sessions can win a spirit stick! Judges will be hiding all over so make sure your club shows spirit all throughout DCON! You never know when someone is watching.

FAQ I’m not going to DCON, will I still receive the award I applied to if I get it? Yes you will. Although, DCON does have a awards night and we want to give you a standing ovation on stage, we are not holding you accountable to attend DCON. You will still get your award and we will send it home with your LTG.

Hello CNH! That time of the year is here! DCON is in less than 2 weeks and for many of you, you will finally get your 15 second of fame for applying to awards after a hard year’s work. On behalf of the Member Recognition Committee I would like to thank everyone who supported CNH in going green by submitting electronic submissions. We had a great time going through all the submissions. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you great applicants at DCON! Antoinette Dickerson Member Recognition Chair California-Nevada-Hawaii District

YEAR inREVIEW Don’t forget you have about 2 weeks left to finish up working on those scrapbooks! Keep in mind that there are two types of scrapbooking contest offered through CNH that you can still apply.  Year-In-Review: Traditional: This contest is for traditional scrapbooks that are organized with tabs and chronological order. (Non-Digital) Check-in at District

Convention.

 Year-In-Review: Non-Traditional: This type of scrapbook may be anything with-in reason, as long as it is nondigital. Some clubs get really creative (ex: piñatas, dioramas, etc) with this contest, so think outside the box.

Check-in at District Convention.
