From the people who I have talked to who have used it for their first meetings. they have said that it has been a very effec-

tive video as a promotional tool. Take a look inside to see updates on DCON, RTC, and the Dues process along with both old and new projects on the division level! I hope to see you at the September DCM on September 17, at SECTA High School!

Your friend in service, RJ Immerman

FROM THE MEMBERS We asked :what are you looking forward to this year?


As an upcoming sophomore, there are many exciting things that I look forward to this upcoming school year. The biggest thing I look forward to is meeting my new teachers and classmates. Along with this, I also look forward to meeting the great freshmen, who might even become aspiring Valley Key Club members. This upcoming school year, isn’t just a time of continuous learning and hourly classes. But, it is also a time of greater communication within our club. I believe that with the new school year approaching, I will be able to better communicate with the members of our club. With communication and a fresh new start to the educational school year, I believe that working along with Key Club will help me better become a well-rounded student.

There are a lot of things to look forward to during this school year since I am an upcoming senior! One of the things that I am looking forward to is “club rush” for Key Club. I have been an active member of Key Club throughout all of my years in high school, and it is always exciting to see new members join Key Club. I can’t wait to see how officers utilize the marketing tools that the Communications & Marketing Committee produces. Along with that, there are many service events at the beginning of the school year that I am excited to partake in! Service is always inspiring. In addition to, I am actually really excited to start applying for colleges. I feel like this is taking a huge step for the future that lies ahead. I strongly believe that many of the experiences that I have had through Key Club have made me the person I am today and will be in the future.

One highlight I just cannot wait for this school year is Key Club. It's going to be different this year; we're stepping things up! Our first stage is RTC, where I cannot wait to show the rest of the region our club's enthusiasm and spirit! I also would love to show off the awesome cheers that Isaiah created for RTC. Other than Key Club, I'm looking forward to enjoying every single bit of high school that's left after being done with college applications this school year. Oh, am I excited to face the (hopefully many) perks of being a high school senior

This school year, I am looking forward to participating in more Key Club events and trying harder in terms of grades and my volleyball career. I am also looking forward to spending more time with my family despite how busy I will be. Hopefully, we will have more Key Club members this year and most of them will participate in the events that will be held! I’m looking forward to Fall Rally more than anything because I joined late last year so I wasn’t able to go to Fall Rally and RTC and this year I will make it count and I will join every one of them. I really can’t wait! I believe this year will be a really good year for me and my fellow Key Clubbers!

Dues Frequently Asked Questions

When are dues due? Early dues : November 1st On time dues : December 1st Why do we pay dues ?

Process 1. Access muc with the password provided by your advisor

Key club uses revenue generated by collecting dues to fund events like RTC, Fall Rally, DCON, ICON, and large scale service events. In the end, all of the money you pay, comes back to you, in one form or another.

2. Delete members who have graduated or are no longer members and Add any new members

Out of the $11 that you pay. 4.50 goes to the CNH district and 6.50 goes to Key Club international itself.

: delete all classes on there except 2014, 2015,

Where do I take my dues? That really depends on your club. Most clubs submit their dues either via the school bank, or directly to the treasurer. From there the treasurer will send them to Key Club International office using the proper invoice What if my dues are late? If you do not turn your club dues in by December 1st your club is considered Delinquent. If dues are not turned in by February 1st, your club will be suspended. To avoid this, turn in your dues!

m u c

3. Generate invoices and 2016. Once you have deleted those classes (i.e. 2013, 2010, 2011) you can delete those who didn't rejoin your club from the classes 2014, 2015, and 2016 . Then, you can add all class of 2017 members. At the end of the process, you should have the classes 2017, 2016, 2015, and 2014. You can than generate an invoice so you can have a check cut out to international 4. If you have any questions at all feel free to ask for help!
