District Convention Recap by Audrey Lee LTG Division 20

This year, over 500 dedicated Key Clubbers congregated together at Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, from April 8th to April 10, to usher out the old service year and welcome the new one in with enthusiasm and excitement. The weekend was filled with fun and informative workshops, as well as interesting and hilarious guest speakers, like the Keynote Speaker, Steve Meade, a famous hypnotist. District Executive Board candidates also campaigned vigorously, disseminating their platforms and ideas through caucuses and speeches. On Sunday morning, the District Board Key Clubbers have come to know and love the past year stepped down, and a new Governor, Secretary, Treasurer, Editor, and 22 Lieutenant Governors were installed in their new positions. The weekend was an incredible and unforgettable experience, filled with laughter, tears, intensity, and above all, an uniting love for Key Club.

The Acronyms of Key Club

PCM An Officer’s Training Conferenceis a meeting that takes place in the beginning of the service year so all club officers can be properly trained. At the meeting, club officers will receive valuable training manuals and be personally trained by me. EACH CLUB OFFICER MUST ATTEND AT LEAST ONE OTC. The 1st OTC date will be emailed soon.

CMRF The Regional Training Center is where Key Clubbers from a certain region in the state get together for a day of fun and informative workshops, as well as training, and getting to know and make new friends. There are a total of 2 RTC’s: one in the Spring, and one in the Fall.

ALL CLUB OFFICERS MUST ATTEND ONE. The North RTC will be on May 22nd, at Millburn High School. More information will be emailed shortly.

A President’s Council Meeting is a meeting of club presidents in the division, organized by their Lieutenant Governor, in which they share their club progress, as well as discuss district and divisional information. All Presidents are required to attend every PCM. The 1st PCM date is coming up soon! I will email all presidents a few weeks beforehand.

OTC A Club Monthly Report Form must be submitted by each club secretary by the 10th of every month. These forms let the district see how the club is doing in terms of activities and progress.

The 2011-2012 District Project by Audrey Lee LTG Division 20

After five successful years of partnering with Children’s Specialized Hospital, the New Jersey District this year has decided to split its efforts between two truly meaningful causes: one to concentrate fundraising efforts towards, and one to concentrate service efforts towards. All fundraising efforts will now be directed towards the ELIMINATE Project, a joint project between Kiwanis International and UNICEF to eliminate maternal and neonatal tetanus. Almost 66,000 babies are victim to this deadly disease annually. But, this disease can be prevented. With only 3 doses of $0.60 vaccines, mothers can give birth to babies who will not have to suffer from this terrible and excruciatingly painful disease. More information can be found on: https://www.theeliminateproject.com. Service efforts will still remain directed towards Children’s Specialized Hospital, the largest hospital and rehabilitation center for children afflicted by brain injury, spinal cord injury, premature birth, autisim, and other life-changing illnesses. A list of locations and contacts can be found on its website: www.childrens-specialized.org.
