New Board Introductions Division 1 Lieutenant Governor: Zach Raetzman
Hello! My name is Zach Raetzman and I am ecstatic to be serving as the 2013-2014 Division 1 Lieutenant Governor. I will be a senior at Tremper High School in Kenosha and am proud to be an involved member of my school. I am a member of our bowling team, a Co-President of our Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) chapter, a member of our National Honor Society, and play saxophone in the school band. In addition to my school commitments, I am also an active member of the Boy Scouts of America. I am working toward becoming an Eagle Scout, am in charge of programming for my councilâ€™s National Youth Leadership Training program, and work at a Cub Scout Summer Camp. This year, Division 1 is going to increase its dedication to service and optimize communication. Division 1 will truly synergize this year and make our community a much better place in the process. This year is going to be great! Yours in Service, Zach Raetzman Division 2 Lieutenant Governor: Lauren Camacho Hello WI-UM Key Clubbers, Iâ€™m Lauren Camacho, a junior at Wilmot Union High School, and your 2014-2015 Division 2 Lieutenant Governor. In hopes of creating a more united District, I would like to begin by making close connections with the clubs within my own Division. By uniting my Division, hopefully other Lieutenant Governors will do the same and then our District, as a whole, can come together and share the bond for which Key Club is known. I hope we can have a great start to this new Key Club year! Feel free to contact me at any time at email@example.com.

Division 5 Lieutenant Governor: Joshua Dvorak I am Joshua Dvorak and I will be serving as our division’s Lieutenant Governor for the upcoming year. I know this is going to be a unique and fun experience for me, and I am eager to meet all of your individual clubs in the near future. Until then, this introduction letter will have to do! In this upcoming year, I want to make this Division more aware of District and International affairs to unite Key Clubs in our search for service. Instead of each club feeling like their club is just “some club” in their high school; I want to inform the clubs of what their contribution have become of a part of, or the “bigger picture” and that they are not alone. I am the first to admit that DCON was an eyeopening experience, so much so I have gone from being a general member to being Lieutenant Governor for my Division.

At its core, Key Club is a service organization but in order to achieve our goals we need members, hard work and compassionate peoplethat get out there and volunteer. I am here to make sure you have enough volunteering opportunities to be personally rewarding and to make division 15 the gold standard of all Wisconsin- Upper Michigan Key Clubs.

District Governor: Erin Idler Hey Key Clubbers! My name is Erin Idler. I am the 2014-2015 District Governor. I am extremely excited to have the honor of leading your District this year! I am currently a Junior at Wilmot Union High School. This year on the District board, I have a few goals I plan to complete. First off, my Governor’s Project will be the ELIMINATE Project. In its final year as the Kiwanis and UNICEF partnership project, I would like us as a District to support our Parent organization of Kiwanis in their fight to eradicate this horrible disease. I would like for us, as district board, to create more service opportunities for you, as members, so that there are more options to complete service, rather than having to personally seek it out. Being an active member myself, I understand how frustrating it can be when your school has service projects, but always on the same nights, and you are unable to attend. I am a member of our schools Yearbook Committee. I currently serve as the Committee Chair for the Relay for Life at Wilmot HS. I enjoy acting, writing, reading, bowling, and playing my trumpet in my free time. During the spring, summer, and fall my favorite thing to do is camp. I enjoy spending time with my family and my friends. I am on the tennis team at Wilmot and play softball recreationally. I come from a family of four, with one brother in college. I intend to go to college for either Chemistry or Psychology then moving on to Law School. I set myself a goal when I was quite young to “do everything with a purpose and for a purpose”. I am hoping to get to know all of you very well this year. Through being in Key Club, I have met so many great people and from my personal view as well as my family’s, grown as a person. I have learned how to be a leader and what to know what kind of leader I want to be. Through Key Club, I have worked to break out of my shell, and become a more open person. With activities including Kiwanis Key Leader and getting to work with some pretty great people on the District Board, I have come even closer to the person I want to be. This year, I would like you to feel that I am a resource for you. My information is at the bottom of this page. Please feel free to contact me at any time with any questions, concerns, or suggestions you may have. This is your district, without you, the board would not be here. Along with your Lieutenant Governor, I and the rest of the Executive committee are here at your disposal. Yours in Service and Kindness, Erin Idler email@example.com 1-262-909-5560

I can’t wait to work with all of you to improve the WIUM District. This year I have some goals in mind that I believe will really help the District. For example, I want to review and, if necessary, edit all forms on the WIUM Website to help officers submit them. Additionally, I want to increase the submission of forms, such as Monthly Report Forms and New Officer Information Sheets, by increasing awareness of the forms and how they’re submitted. Another goal I have is to set up direct communication between club secretaries and treasurers and myself, as well as with clubs and advisors. I think this can really help unite the District and effectively give information to officers. I want to serve as an effective resource to all of you and I think the only way to do that is if you all are able to call and email me with questions and suggestions.

District Bulletin Editor: Isabella Blackburn Hey everyone, My name is Isabella Blackburn and I will be serving as your 2014- 2015 District Bulletin Editor. I am very excited to get to know all of you better and help strengthen this District over this next year. This year I would I would really like to focus on strengthening the communication within this District. One of my goals for this year is to send out a publication each month so that you can keep in contact. It is very important to keep updated on what is going on in this district. Therefore, another goal I have is to talk to the Lieutenant Governors and the Club Presidents to see how different clubs throughout the District keep in contact. With this information I will plan to send out the Key to Caring through different formats. Also, I would like to get more entries for the Key to Caring. The entries could be about club projects, division wide projects, or even just an informational article. I see these articles as a way to keep the District informed about what is going on in different places. In addition to these goals, I think you might want to know a little about me. My full name is Isabella-Francesca Lucille Blackburn. I am currently a junior at Wilmot HS. I come from a very large family that consists of seven children, me being the youngest, and my mother. I have three older brothers and three older sisters. From them I have three amazing nieces and three amazing nephews. After them I have a great-niece and a great-nephew. With knowing this you can assume my family is slightly different than most, but they are great. Other things that I do with my time, besides hang out with family and friends, include; Key club of course, band, orchestra, and student council. In the band I play French horn and in orchestra I play the cello. I love playing these instruments; they are very calming and help when I just want to have some fun. Other than band, I spend all my time with my family, friends, or doing Key Club stuff. I very much love and appreciate what Key Club has done for me throughout the past few years. It has changed my life and helped me meet lots of new wonderful people and have some amazing opportunities. I can’t wait for these wonderful things to continue on this year. I look forward to seeing and working with you all. Yours in service, Isabella Blackburn Contact me at:

District Eliminate Project Chair: Celia Nalbach Hello Wisconsin Upper Michigan Key Clubbers! My name is Celia Nalbach, and I could not be more excited to call myself your 2014-2015 District Eliminate Project Chair. I am a junior at Neenah High School where I am involved in many activities. Outside of Key Club I am a part of the Neenah Girls Cross Country and Track teams, the National Honors Society, Vex Robotics, and Math Team. All these activities, including the heavy load of homework high school provides, keeps me quite busy, however, there is always time in my life for Key Club. Like many, I began my career as a Key Clubber as a general member unsure what Key Club was all about. It wasnâ€™t long before I realized that my passion for serving my home, school, and community made Key Club the perfect club for me, and my love for the organization quickly grew. The past year, serving as 2013-2014 District Bulletin Editor, solidified my love and passion for Key Club. Being on the District Board not only strengthened my dedication to the organization, but it also furthered my knowledge and devotion of the Eliminate Project. When I was presented the opportunity to serve as District Eliminate Chair this year, I was extremely honored. I am very passionate about this cause, and I have big plans for the upcoming year. There is only one year of the Eliminate Campaign remaining, yet there is still a lot to be accomplished. I ask that all WIUM Key Club members share my enthusiasm for Eliminate, and together we can make a difference by helping to eliminate neonatal and maternal tetanus from the face of the earth. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions; I look forward to working with all of you! Yours in Service, Celia Nalbach

District Preferred Charities Committee Chair: Taylor Hurst Hello Key Clubbers! My name is Taylor Hurst, and I am thrilled to be your Committee Chair of Preferred Charities for the Key Club year of 20142015. This year is going to be phenomenal, and I can’t wait to start it with all of you! Helping people is my biggest passion, and it’s because of Key Club that I’ve been able to do just that! I’ve always had a desire for helping others, but I wasn’t sure how to get started. I joined Key Club not knowing what to expect, but since then I have fallen in love with this club. I’ve met so many amazing people, and I have grown as a person and as a leader. I am proud to say that I am a dedicated member of Key Club. In addition to Key Club, I do many other things to get involved. I am currently a freshman at Kimberly High School and I take part in Forensics, Free3, Choir and the Theatre program. I love working with others and I always keep an open mind for new possibilities. As the Committee Chair of Preferred Charities, my goal is to have effective communication among club members and raise awareness for Key Club’s preferred charities. I am super excited for the upcoming events in honor of the amazing charities that Key Club supports, and I want to get as many Key Clubbers involved as possible!I’m open to any ideas to get the word out about these wonderful charities. Please feel more than welcomed to contact me via Facebook, email, text or give me a call. I would love to answer any questions that you may have, or even if you just need someone to talk to. I believe that when we come together, we can raise awareness and make a difference in many people’s lives! I cannot wait to see how much of an impact we make in this upcoming year. Yours in Service, Taylor Hurst Contact Information Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Phone: (920)257-6517
District Bylaws & Policies Committee Chair: Stephanie Rink Hello Key Clubbers! I am Stephanie Rink, the Bylaws & Policies Chair. Do not feel bad if youâ€™ve never heard of the position. It was created just this year, so that means this is the first year it will be around. It also means my own work for the committee may outline the work for future chairs. My role this year with the brand new committee is to discover what this position means for WIUM. It is a lot of pressure to be the first of my position, but hopefully I can make a smooth path for the people who will come after me. For those of you unfamiliar with bylaws or policies, you would be surprised that you know a lot more than you think you do, especially if you had previously attended DCON or the House of Delegates. There you are able to see bylaws or policies in action; all the procedurals that some people may find boring or repetitive are actually specifically written out to fit an exact purpose so that Key Club can continue running smoothly. Though that is not all that bylaws and policies are, that is what they look like in their most recognizable form. I would be happy to take any questions you may have about Bylaws & Policies! I would really like to make them much more well known throughout WIUM Key Club, because I think a well-informed Key Club might run more smoothly, and I believe that District Board members, Club Board members, and regular members can all learn something new from it! -Stephanie Rink, Bylaws & Policies Chair Email: email@example.com
District Public Relations Committee Chair: Chelsey Barnes Hello Wisconsin-Upper Michigan! My name is Chelsey Barnes and I am your new head of the Public Relations Committee for 2014-2015. I am so incredibly excited to make this Key Club year a success by working and getting to know each and every one of you! I am currently a junior at Kimberly High School and love being an active student body member. I am involved in various activities such as Varsity golf, National Honors Society, Badger Girls State, Soccer, and of course, Key Club! In my schoolâ€™s Key Club, we do many great events, but one of my favorites is Top Soccer. This is where we help children with disabilities stay active by playing soccer with them every Saturday. One thing that you should know about me is that I have a lot of spirit and positivity. I hope to use this as an asset to the Public Relations Committee to raise club and District passion for service. Through the use of technology and creativity, my goal is to make videos, posters and use online media to promote upcoming major events and increase knowledge of what Key Club is all about!Going into this new Key Club year, I look forward to working closely with the Director of Technologies and the Director of Committees to advertise and publicize Kiwanis events. I also am very excited to get to know and make memories with all of the advisers, officers and club members! If you have any questions please feel free to contact me! Yours in Service, Chelsey Barnes

District Membership Development Chair: Ashlee Trotter Hey there, Key Clubbers! My name is Ashlee Trotter and I will be serving as the WIUM District Membership Development Chair for the 2014-2015 Key Club year. Before I start to go on a rant about how amazing our District is, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a Junior at Gladstone High School (way up in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) and am so happy to be able to say that I have been a member of my school’s Key Club since Freshman year. Along with this being my second year as the Gladstone Key Club President, I am also involved in many other different clubs and organizations within my school and community, which include tennis, bowling, Drama Club, and being involved with my church. You may be wondering, “What in the world does a Membership Development Chair do??” As Membership Development Chair, I will be working to build our District as a whole. You, the members of the Wisconsin-Upper Michigan Key Club, are what make us who we are. Without dedicated members who are willing to serve their communities and the world, we would be nothing. That’s why I will be working to gain membership in the clubs within our District. After all, you can’t spell Key Club without “u”! :) I hope to be able to stay in contact with all of you, whether regarding the membership of your clubs or to get to know you in general! I can’t wait to be able to meet everyone at the 2015 District Leadership Conference (DCON), but until then don’t be afraid to contact me! I’m here to help and would love to talk to you about all things Key Club! This is going to be a great year! Keep on serving!

Dance Marathon On April 12th, three Division 7 schools came together to attend a Dance Marathon, benefiting the Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network. Appleton East, Kimberly, and Neenah High Schools worked extremely hard all year to plan the 3rd annual Fox Cities Dance Marathon. Without a doubt, this was a night to remember. With fun activities, great dancing themes, and touching patient stories, this night was amazing from all of the hard work that was put into this event. Together, these 3 schools raised a total of $11,870.01 for the Childrenâ€™s Miracle Network! It was truly amazing to see the difference we can make together. Amy Blossom- Division 7 Lieutenant Governor
DCON Overview LIGHTS, CAMERA, ACTION! This year at the District Leadership Conference, we had Key Clubbers walking the red carpet at this year’s theme: “A Night at the Oscars”. On March 7, Key Clubbers from all over Wisconsin and UpperMichigan arrived to the Hyatt on Main in Green Bay, Wisconsin for a weekend full of glitz and glamor! The weekend began with a meet and greet with the District Board while clubs registered and checked into the hotel. Afterwards, Key Clubbers dressed as their themes and came together for the Opening Session. The room came to life as characters from different films joined forces to celebrate another year of service! The Opening Session kicked off with the Keynote Speaker, Eddie Slowikowski, who had everyone on their feet and dancing. Nominations for the Executive Board took place shortly after, and from there Key Clubbers were headed to some amazing workshops! The night ended with a theme dance full of music and dancing! Starting Saturday morning there were workshop sessions where Key Clubbers learned things from how to be a good leader, all the way to learning about Key Club International’s new partner – Rustic Pathways. After the workshops everyone joined for the KFamily Awards Luncheon, where we heard from our WI-UM K-Family Counterparts. After lunch the Caucus Sessions began for all positions on the board. The speeches were very interesting for both the Executive Board and Lieutenant Governor candidates. Everyone then got together for the Awards Banquet later that night. Key Clubbers were recognized and awarded for their amazing talent and hard work throughout the year. Everyone celebrated shortly after with the White Out dance. During the dance there was a Miracle Minute which raised money for the Eliminate Project. In exactly sixty seconds, Key Clubbers raised $236.51, saving more than one hundred and twenty four lives affected by MNT all around the world! After a night full of celebration and life-saving, Sunday morning began with the Closing Session. During the session, the memorable Key Club year was brought to a close with the retirement of the old District Board by the Kiwanis Governor, and a new year began with the installment of the New District Board. Whether you were able to attend or not, every Key Clubber is truly a star through service! Taylor Hurst- District Committee Chair of Preferred Charities 18
WIUM District Forms New Officer Information Sheets, aka NOIS Forms, are an amazing chance for each club to get connected to the District. By simply completing this wonderful form, a club will begin to receive updates and important information from Lieutenant Governors and other District Officials. NOIS Forms can be completed by the club secretary on the District webpage (www.wiumkeyclub.com), under the forms tab. These should be completed after a club holds officer elections, but are accepted at any time. NOIS Forms basically provide club officers’ contact information to the District Board. By completing this form, a club takes the first step towards getting involved and connected at the District level. Don’t miss out; submit these as soon as possible! Monthly Report Forms, or MRFS, are the forms that help the District keep track of how much service WIUM Key Clubbers perform. MRFs are available on the WIUM District Webpage (www.wiumkeyclub.com) under the forms tab. The forms should be submitted by the club secretary by the 5th of each month. MRFs serve as an effective way to convey to myself, the District Governor, your Lieutenant Governor, and the District Administrator the amount of service your club has performed. In addition, these forms are important overall for the WIUM District. This year, the District would like to increase the amount of reported service hours WIUM performs, and every Key Club’s help is needed. The number of reported hours would skyrocket if every club chose to submit MRFs on a monthly basis. It is known that service is being done, but without submitting these forms no credit can be given to clubs. These forms are quick and simple and can take less than 5 minutes to complete. Just like NOIS Forms, MRFs can always be submitted past the due date, better late than never. If you do not already, please begin to submit these forms, they help the WIUM District immensely. Thank you all for your amazing commitment to service. I look forward to receiving many more Monthly Report Forms and New Officer Information sheets. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Yours in Service, Justine Schwarz 19
