The DEC for Division 3C will be sometime in the first week of January. In the Divisional Election Conference (DEC), we will elect the new Lieutenant Governor for the next Key Club year. Only one member or officer is allowed to run for each club and your club needs to have paid dues in order to vote. Along with the DEC, we will have our January DCM. I will go over important information regarding DCON. If you would like to run, please contact me with your school name!


The Challenge of a Big School for our Key Club Our Key Club is one of the 110+ clubs at Bellaire High School, which is home to 3500+ high school students. Many of these students join many of the clubs that Bellaire has to offer. Even though this wide diverse range of clubs is one of Bellaire’s trademark characteristics, it can be challenging for clubs to attract members, due to all the other clubs that students can to consider. Bellaire Key Club is one of the clubs that faces these challenges. Even though the school is home to 3500+ students, we have struggled in the past to have little more than 20+ members by the end of the academic year. Our club faces stiff competition with other volunteer and service clubs such as Leo Club, UNICEF, Red Cross Club, and more. Many students have difficulties choosing between the many clubs Bellaire has to offer. As a result, the school holds 2 club jamborees each year, which allows any club to show incoming freshman what their club has to offer, and to attract new members. Clubs put up booths advertising their club, and hand out candy and other sweets to try to bribe freshman to join their club. Because many incoming freshman are overwhelmed by the amount of clubs our school has to offer, and can be unsure about which clubs they should join, it is very easy for them to get lost in the shuffle of the clubs Bellaire offers. At these club jamborees, we easily get 100+ freshman to sign up on our interest forms, which allows them to get access to our Key Club emails and updates once the school year starts.


However, when it is time for our meetings, the majority of the freshman who signed up, do not show. While this can be frustrating for our club and our officers, our Key Club board this year are optimistic and working hard to retain members throughout the year. We will be marketing and advertising our club as hard as we can, and we are optimistic that we will be able to solve the problem of low membership that has plagued our club in the past. One thing we are doing to retain membership this year is to have specific requirements club members have to fulfill in order to stay in the club. We are hoping that these requirements will not only promote club activity, but also spurt membership growth. -
