GREETINGS Hello Division 27, If you haven’t already met me, my name is Josh Kim and I will be serving as your 2014-2015 Lieutenant Governor. Currently, I’m a junior at Woodinville High School. Recently, we just came back from the biggest event of the year: The 65th Annual Pacific Northwest District Convention! This is where we leveled up in service by recognizing the sacrifice of countless hours towards Eliminating MNT, met people from all over the Pacific Northwest District, and celebrated a year of service together, as a family. As we recover from the lows of Post-DCON Syndrome (PDS), let’s remember to stay connected with the new friends that we’ve made, as well as reconvene as a division to become stronger in our next term. Sadly, the time has come for us to give our farewells to our lovely Immediate Past Lieutenant Governor, Ashley Yoo. If you get the chance, please thank Miss Yoo for her service, and congratulate her for embarking on a new chapter of her life! Thank you so much Ashley, for your care, service, and sacrifice for everything Toucan. Even though we’ve just come back from DCON, it’s now time to start thinking about going to ICON (International Convention) in Anaheim, CA! More information about registration will be rolling out soon, but keep in mind that you will need ample funding to cover the costs of attending ICON. While it will be a bit pricy, it will be worth the time you spend with your district board, the international friendships that you will make, and the service that you’ll provide. I highly encourage you to make an effort to attend ICON, especially if you’re currently in a leadership position in your club. As your new Lieutenant Governor, I am beyond excited for the coming year, and I’m even more excited to be working with you amazing people! However, please remember that I am here as your resource, so please feel free to contact me about anything! And with that, let’s get pumped for a whole new year of taking action! With love and service,
Lieutenant Governor of Division 27 Pacific Northwest Key Club
GREETINGS Dear Pacific Northwest District, The ending of District Convention is always hard, but it also marks the beginning of another Key Club year, and another year of service. If you have not already met me, I am Lisa Antonio, and I am honored to have the chance to serve as your District Governor for the next year. I am so privileged to be leading such a diverse and enthusiastic district, and I am excited to start building upon our strengths and creating new solutions for our districtâ€™s weaknesses. In this upcoming year I want to focus on clubs and members. I want to make sure clubs are thriving and increasing not only membership, but active membership. I want each club member to know the District Board is there to serve the members. I am inspired by the love and passion each one of you has for the act of service. Keep up the amazing work, and remember that every single minute you spend serving the community is changing the world around you in a positive way. Remember to always keep service in your heart, and no matter what is going on in life, if you are serving, you can always find love. Keep in mind that in hard times, you always have your Key Club family to lean back on, and depend on. Know that the things you have done in Key Club, and the peopleâ€™s lives you have touched along the way will never be forgotten. Once again I am so grateful to have the chance to serve all of you. I am looking forward to meeting all of you, and if you have any questions please feel free to contact me via email, Facebook, or telephone! In Love and Service,
Lisa Antonio Pacific Northwest District Key Club Governor
Hello Key Clubbers! My name is Aneesh Pappu and I am the incoming District Treasurer. I am so honored and grateful to serve you all for the 2014-2015 term and I look forward to what we will accomplish together! One of my main goals is to actively educate club treasurers so that dues collection is easy and efficient for all clubs in our district. I also plan to effectively monitor the budget of the board and to oversee all fundraising efforts for the district project this year. In addition, I intend to play a very active role in working with growth committees on the district board to increase membership within our district. I want you all to know that I am always available to assist you with any and all problems that you may have in your clubs. Feel free to give me a call anytime, even if you just want to chat, and add me on Facebook! I look forward to meeting you all this year. In Caring & Service,

Toucan Tips Be Confident Clubbers need a confident leader. Hold your head high, and they will have more faith in your decisions and direction. It’s natural to feel like a fish out of water in a new leadership position. There is no need to show shame for your “lack of experience”. You’ll learn as you go, so there’s no pressure to be perfect.
Plan Ahead ALWAYS know what is happening in your club and personal life. Nothing is worse than realizing that you have a conflict on the same date as an important Key Club event. Try to make a calendar and mark important dates AS SOON AS you are aware of them. This will help you keep track of everything going on in your life, and will help you avoid a messy scheduling crisis.
Be Knowledgeable People like leaders who know what they’re doing. Clubbers want you to lead them down the right road, and that would be rather difficult if you have no idea of what you’re doing. If you’re unsure of what your duties are, check the website! Both websites! The Pacific Northwest District website (pnwkeyclub.org) and the International website (keyclub.org) both have resources to help you with your job.
Be Caring Answer emails and phone calls immediately. People use their valuable time, and step out of their comfort zone to seek your help. Be there for them, so that they will be there for you (i.e. remain as outstanding clubbers). Take an interest in community affairs and always push for a good charity event. Your club and school will see you as a strong, caring, and dedicated leader. If an officer or clubber misses a deadline, don’t be too harsh with them. Find out what the situation is first, have a discussion with them about why they missed it, and then offer help if possible. Just think back to all of those times that you were late, would you want an angry person yelling at you? 23
A Farewell to Division 27 From the Immediate Past Lt. Governor
Dear Division 27, What a year we've had! I began my term unaware of what was to come. Within this last year, I've grown immensely and I owe it all to you. I've learned to have confidence in myself as a leader and learned to trust my instincts. My heart to serve and belief in our ability to make a difference in the world grew even stronger. But most of all, I've had the privilege to witness you do the same. I've watched as you stepped up as leaders, deliberately making an effort to impact the communities around you, and I'm so proud to say that I had the privilege of serving you. To all of you seniors--it has been such a successful year for you and our division. I know that wherever you end up, you'll make an impact, and I can't wait to hear all about it. Best of luck in your endeavors. To all the incoming officers--get ready for an even bigger and better year! Never stop dreaming and aspiring to be the best you can be. With your help, our division can grow to be even stronger and impacting. I wish you the best of luck on your term. To Josh--I'm so proud of your work this past year, and I am so excited to see how you'll strengthen this division. I already know you'll make me proud, but don't forget where you come from- WHS & the toucan family is where it's at (: To the rest of the members--you are the core of it all. Thank you so much for being the best group of Key Clubbers a girl could ask to serve. Your heart for others is what inspires me, and what will continue to inspire me in the future. Don't ever lose that heart because it is through all of you that we as an organization can thrive and continue making a difference. Thank you for a wonderful term, Division 27. As this year comes to a close I hope to leave you all with laughter, smiles, and memories that will last a lifetime. I love you all. With love and service,
Immediate Past Lieutenant Governor of Division 27
