Division 31 | Region 1 | Cali-Nev-Ha District | Key Club

The year has gone by so quickly. It's been more than 365 days since I've been elected as Lieutenant Governor, and I could not have been luckier. It has been an absolute honor and joy to serve all of you as Lieutenant Governor, and I hope you have all enjoyed it just as much as I have. Since it is February, all clubs should be beginning their elections and their transition period. This is extremely crucial to help our newly elected Lieutenant Governor!

-Cecilia Li Hi Robots! Your Divisional Tech Editor here. I hope that I was able to provide sufficient information with my website and newsletters for these past couple of months. My experience as the Divisional Tech Editor was a very interesting experience but it really did help me get more involved in Key Club and community service. I’m glad I was able to contribute to the Division this year!

In an email from Cecilia Li: I know, it seems like the term has just begun, but remember that in Key Club, terms start in May. So... it's time to talk about elections. (Don't cry!) Club Elections (President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Editor): Club elections should be held somewhere between January and March 2014. I have attached to this e-mail a resource created by the P.I.E. Committee which explores different ways that clubs approach their club elections and tips. Please note that club elections is different for each club according to its standard club bylaws. There is no set way of holding elections. The "How to Conduct Club Elections" video tutorial (created by 2011-2012 PIE Committee) can be found by clicking here, and also serves as a great resource to give you an idea on how to run club elections. Please keep in mind that you should uphold the integrity of Key Club International and conduct your club elections in a moral manner where each individual gets a fair chance. Lieutenant Governor Conclave: Just as club officers are elected, Lieutenant Governors for each division are, as well! The position of Lieutenant Governor will be elected in January 25th, 2014 at Conclave (the term "conclave" just means the election ceremony, basically equivalent to election). The exact time and address of Conclave will be announced soon. Candidate Training Conference: Since the position of LTG is so critical to the success of DIvision 31 Key Club, there is a special Conference dedicated to informing potential elects on running. If anyone plans on running for the position of Division 31 Lieutenant Governor for the 2014-2015 term, then they should try their best to attend CTC. It is not mandatory, but very, very highly recommended. CTC will be on December 14th, 2013. It will take place in Vista, San Diego. The address and time will be announced soon, but the time should be from around 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Come to this CTC to learn about the duties and responsibilities of becoming a Lieutenant Governor as well as learn about the election process. I highly encourage all who are eligible to go (sorry, seniors!). Please remember to register if you plan to attend CTC! The link is here. For more information on how to run for Lt. Governor, also refer to the CyberKey ( > Officers > Running for Office > Running for Lt. Governor > Download Guide [blue button]). District Office Candidate Training Conference: This is a mandatory training conference for those seeking the position of District Governor, District Secretary, or District Treasurer. Nonattendance at this required training will result in disqualification from the election process. This training conference will cover the roles and responsibilities of the positions, challenges these leaders face, skills of effective district leaders, and an overview of the election process. Candidates attending this training may be eligible for reimbursed travel expenditures. The District Officer Candidate Training Conference (DOCTC) will be held on January 19th, 2014 at the CNH Kiwanis Professional Center (8360 Red Oak Street, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730). It will most likely go from 10:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Please remember to register if you plan to attend DOCTC! The link will be released onto the CNH Cyberkey soon, and the deadline to do so is January 10th, 2014.

RECOGNITION Although every single member that serves Division 31 is absolutely amazing, there can only be one Member of the Month, and only one Officer of the Month. As a member, there are many things you can do to get recognized. Send in articles and visuals, attend the monthly DCM’s (Kiwanis has them, too!) Officers can send Cecilia invitations to their events as well as organize their own. Next month, this could be you!

Over thanksgiving break, Valhalla's Key Club volunteered at the Salvation Army and helped to distribute frozen turkeys and other foods to about 500 needy families in the El Cajon area. This event is a fairly new one for the Salvation Army for it was only their second year doing this distribution. Maureen McCully, the volunteer coordinator and my contact for the Salvation Army, told me that we were a very big help to them. Because of our help, they were able to finish earlier then previously thought. Last year, there were only two volunteers handing out turkeys, and it took them until 8 pm (four hours past their planned shift) to finish. Just as we were about to leave, Maureen stopped and thanked us for the help. I feel as though this event helps to establish good relations with Valhalla's Key Club and the Salvation Army of El Cajon!

Rosefloat is a staple event in Key Club. It's a great experience, and I always have fun. This was my second time going and was glad I convinced a number of my club members to go as well. I received nothing but positive feedback from them, and they all look forward to going next year. When I was cutting flower heads off of stems and pouring glue onto them for endless hours, I felt as if what I was doing wasn't very meaningful or had any direct impact on the parade. However, I ended up seeing volunteers placing the flowers I had cut onto several floats. The flowers made the floats enjoyable to look at it and really stood out. I think the best part was seeing all of the volunteers' hard work on TV on the day of the actual parade.

On January 12th, Key Club and Green Club teamed up and headed to Mission Beach for a cleanup. We covered most of the southern part of Mission Beach and found trash items such as cigarette butts, plastic wrappers, juice boxes, and cans. Ironically, most of the trash was found near the trash cans; it was interesting to see trash cans surrounded by loads of trash yet every where else was pretty much trash- free. This cleanup was different from the rest because the environment was more laid back and felt not as rushed. Picking up trash and conserving our recreational habitat was a great way to start our Sunday morning.
