Greetings From the
Club Building Chair Hello Fellow and Potential KEY CLUBBERS! George N. Parks:
A Little About Me:
“No rule for success will work if you don't.”
Hi! I’m Tali Bitton and I’m this year’s RMD Club Building Chair. It’s super exciting to be able to work with all of you RMD members to make sure our district grows! I live in Cow Town, USA, or for those of you who know the city as Greeley, CO, that’s where you’ll find me. Interesting name? Most think so; it’s Hebrew. My family is Israeli and we’re really head strong as such. Besides Key Club, I’m the GWHS Marching Band senior drum major, an accomplished artist and a committed student. My personality is big and I try to give 120% (that’s the only way everyone else will give 100%). I’m interested in hearing from ya’ll, so find me on Facebook , Tumblr or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Welcome to the first issue of the Club Building Newsletter. Here, the Club Building Committee (CBC) provides a way of members, just like you, to easily obtain the information about Starting a Club. All of your Lieutenant Governors are going to charter new Key Clubs across our district this year, but that doesn’t men you can’t do anything. Many of your divisions have some K Kids, Builders Clubs or Aktion Clubs; well, if you’re in an established Key Club, start a charter for of these clubs. All the K-Family clubs hold many opportunities for our generation to give back to our communities and develop leadership within us at the same time! See Page 6 for the official K Family Chartering Pages. Pg. 3

Along with a potential of 20 more Key Clubs and other K-Family clubs being added in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska, we are will be fixing the inactive and suspended clubs.

With this new structure, any member in a given region will be able to contact their respective CBC Region Representative. The four of us on the CBC are your representatives. If you’re interested in chartering, reactivating, etc. a club, contact your representative.
