Governors Page

Hello Everyone!

Hello, my name is Morgan Wade and I am the new Governor for the Missouri-Arkansas District of Key Club International. I live in Arkansas and love to volunteer in my community. I attend High School where I will be a senior next year. I am active in Key Club, FFA, Tennis, and other clubs. My hobbies include crafts, and hanging out with my friends.

My goals in Key Club include: maintaining and opening lines of communication between our clubs; chartering new Key Clubs; increasing communication between me and the clubs in the district; and being an active roll model in my school’s Key Club.

 

I believe that being in Key Club improves leadership skills, allows you to meet new people, and proves opportunities to make great friends with the other members of the K-Family. I look forward to meeting you, and I hope this year is will be a great learning experience and service year for the Missouri-Arkansas District of Key Club.

 

Yours in Service,

Morgan wade, Mo-Ark District Governor

 

How Key Club Works

Key Club International is a self-governing organization that elects its own officers, determines its own service activities and establishes its own dues structure.

Key Club International is an organization comprised of individual Key Clubs and is funded by nominal dues paid by every member. Its officers are high school leaders, who are elected by the members at district and international conventions.

Structure

International

Key Club International encompasses all clubs within the group's 33 organized districts and in countries that are not included in any specific district. Key Club International is led by the International Board, which is comprised of the International president, International vice president and 11 international trustees, all students and active Key Club members.

District

A district is normally defined by state or nation and tends to match a similar Kiwanis district. Each district is chaired by a governor, who is elected by delegates at the annual district convention.

Division

Each district is divided into territories called divisions, which are made up of various clubs. Each division has a lieutenant governor, a student leader who carries out the district's policies and provides support to the clubs.

Club

Key Clubs are established in a high school or equivalent institution. A community-based club also may be chartered. Elected officers are president, one or more vice presidents, secretary, treasurer, editor and one director from each class.

Governance

Bylaws

The international, district and club levels operate under a set of bylaws that spell out their respective policies. You can find the International Bylaws in the Key Club Guidebook, the official guide for Key Club, which is distributed every spring to each club.
