Dear New Jersey District Board, I don’t make the rules, I only enforce them. Though I may seem strict or intimidating at times, it’s because we work together to make the New Jersey District “the district where the Key Clubs are the best.” I am here to help you in any way that I can. If you feel stressed and need to talk to someone, you have my number; if you don’t know how to get in contact with a club, let me know; if you need help picking a profile picture, send me a message on Facebook. You are all doing wonderful jobs as lieutenant governors and I have high hopes for the year to come! Yours in caring and service, Kelly Tran
3. When designing shirts, you have to clear the background so that there isn’t a rectangle of color around the image on the shirt. To do this, use the magic wand tool to clear it so that it's transparent and save as a .png file to preserve the transparency. 4. Always send things in both .doc and .pdf formats.

ltg do’s & don’ts DO | WORK WITH OTHER DIVISIONS Hosting co-divisional events leads to bonding between your members and hopefully a better turn-out! Planning together also lends way for ideas that you wouldn’t have thought of yourself. DON’T | WAIT UNTIL LAST MINUTE TO TRAIN OFFICERS Although all officers must be trained by Fall Rally, it won’t help your officers to be trained already halfway into their terms. Utilize the summer to train all of your officers so that they are adequately prepared to lead their clubs. DO | USE SOCIAL MEDIA Using Facebook groups/events, Twitter, Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram, and any other social media outlet you can think of will help you quickly spread the word about events, meetings, and other news. Networking can also help you get in contact with officers that you would otherwise have never known about. DON’T | OVERSTEP YOUR POSITION Know your place. Although you are a leader and are in a position where you can implement the changes you want to see, never get too full of yourself. Remember that your duty is first and foremost to serve your home, school, and community. When talking to advisors, officers, members, and anyone else you have to work with, be weary of your tone as to not sound condescending. DO | HELP EACH OTHER We are all here to help each other. No one knows the answer to everything, so ask questions whenever you are unsure about something. If you forgot to do something, maybe someone else forgot about it too— post a reminder on the group page. Nothing makes being a lieutenant governor easier than knowing you have each other’s support.
