Once your club has elected your new Club Treasurer, one of your duties is to train them. Training is the essential basis of any good Key Club year. Below are some key points that you should make sure to teach your successor about. Also, make sure that they know about the Jolly Book of Intelligence (JBOI). The JBOI is a manual for all Club Treasurers, it has tons of information for their year of service. Finally, please make sure to instruct them to get familiar with the new District Treasurer (after DCON), because they are there to serve you! General Duties

the District Website under Treasurer Resources.


As of February 1st, 2018, if your club has not sent in Key Club International and Texas-Oklahoma District dues, your club is Suspended. Suspended Clubs cannot enjoy any International or District benefits like registering for DCON/ ICON, voting delegates at conventions, membership items (member pins, cards, flyers, etc), and cannot apply for Key Club Scholarships. To regain Active Status: Update the Membership Update Center (MUC), generate the payment invoice, and either send the dues in (check or money order only) to the address on the invoice or use the credit card system to pay.


Whether you would like to run for District Governor, Secretary, or Treasurer or even apply to be appointed as District Editor, Convention Liaison, or Technology Producer, I highly recommend that you run for district office! Running at DCON is a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only get more involved in Key Club but also to serve your homes, schools, and communities. Although campaigning is not allowed, it is a good idea to talk to the Staff Member in the position that you are seeking to make sure you have the time and abilities of that job. Also, ensure that the office you are seeking is what you really want to do— there are tons of other positions that are available. All candidacy forms can be found on the TO Website under Resources > Candidacy and Application Forms. Elected position forms are due March 9th, and appointed position forms are due April 2nd.

FAREWELL TO Key Clubbers,

Kiss a Senior Goodbye: Take pre-orders and prepayments for bags of chocolate kisses with messages purchasers may write for graduating seniors (also advertise to parents). Create cute, little, bags containing chocolate kisses, the message, and perhaps a cookie or two. Make sure to deliver them before the last week where senior attendance tends to be higher.

Hard Finals Survival Kits: Sell final exam survival kits for students (also advertise to parents). The kits can include a soda, energy bar, pens/pencils, gum, jokes, inspirational messages/quotes, coupons, etc. Deliver these in school during homeroom, lunch periods, or study halls and sell them during lunch and before and after school.

Although our service year is not over until DCON, this will be the last District Treasurer’s Update. It has been a distinct pleasure to service each and every one of you this year, and I won’t forget a minute of it! I hope you all continue to follow your quest for service and join Circle K International if you are a senior, or continue servicing your homes, schools, and communities if you will remain in Key Club. My biggest tip for you is to always remember why you are serving when you are feeling low. Without every Key Club member, we would not be able to raise over $6.3 million dollars for MNT, or provide over 13.5 million hours of service. Yours in Friendship and Service, Foster Hillis 2017– 2018 District Treasurer
