District Convention 2017 Promotion

Lindsey Banks

It's hard to believe that another year has past, and that it's already time for District Convention (DCON) 2017! For those of you who have attended DCON before, we know you're excited for this annual event. But for those of you who have never attended, we hope to see you this year!

District Convention is an annual gathering of the Carolinas District, where members across the Carolinas come together for a weekend of fun, reflection, and service! Club officers will be trained, the new Carolinas District Board will be elected, and the sessions will be out of this world! We will also spend the weekend reflecting on the service and accomplishments of this past year, and preparing to do even better this upcoming year. 

Along with the service learning aspect of DCON, don't forget the entertainment, contests, talent showcase, awards, and dance. You'll also get the chance to meet people who share the same love of service and Key Club and make new friendships. 

District Convention will be held on the weekend of March 24-26th at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham, NC. Talk to your members, encourage them to attend, and don't forget to register yourself!

2016 International Convention

Lindsey Banks

Earlier this month, on July 3rd, the Carolinas District pulled out of Pineville, North Carolina, headed to Atlanta, Georgia for the 2016 International Convention. Before the convention started, the Carolinas District took a few days to tour Atlanta, visiting the many attractions and sites of the city. We rode roller coasters at Six Flags, watched the giant pandas play at the Atlanta Zoo, ate burgers at the Varsity, tried foreign sodas at the World of Coca-Cola, and visited the Georgia Aquarium, CNN Studio, the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, and the Civil Rights Museum. And that was just in the first three days!

On the evening of July 6th, the opening session officially marked the beginning of International Convention. Attendees spent the next day attending workshops, learning about their elected positions, leadership, service, Key Club, and more. Then, caucusing began and the new International Board was elected.

Our new International President is Devin Sun, the Carolinas' immediate past International Trustee, our new International Vice President is Mary Grace Lewis, and our district's new International Trustee is... Drew Valenti!

Then, on July 9th, International Convention ended with a fun dance, and the next day was spent traveling back home to the Carolinas. 

The 2016 Carolinas District Tour to International Convention was a success, and definitely an experience attendees will never forget. 

2016 District Convention

Lindsey Banks

On the weekend of March 11-13, Key Clubs from across North Carolina and South Carolina gathered together for our annual District Convention, also known as DCON.  Over 600 members got the chance to attend training sessions and learn more about Key Club, and being a leader not only in their club, but in the community. Members attended general sessions and training modules, learning and soaking up new information to take back to their home clubs. With all this aside, It’s not DCON without the entertainment session, talent show, and dance. Attendees watched on as acrobats performed draw-dropping stunts and hilarious comedians made the room erupt with laughter. Members also competed in a talent show and attended a (Key) club dance. 

Another important, exciting event that happened over this weekend was the election of the new District Board. Thirty-six Lt. Governors were inducted, as well as the new Executive Officers, who were elected at the House of Delegates. The new Executive Officers are Governor Morgan Yelverton, Secretary Daniel Liu, Treasurer Katie McNiffe, and Editor Lindsey Banks.

Meet your new Executive Officers:

District Governor Morgan Yelverton

Morgan is currently a junior at the Wayne School of Engineering in Goldsboro, NC and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. Outside of Key Club, she enjoys being apart of her church’s youth group and volunteering with the Special Olympics. Throughout her term as Governor, she hopes to enact the three C’s: communication, connections, and compassion. She believes if we are able to effectively communicate together, then our connections for service will arise and our level of compassion will shine.

District Secretary Daniel Liu

Daniel is currently a junior at Enloe Magnet High School in Raleigh, NC and has been in Key Club since his freshman year of high school. He is involved in a STEM tutoring initiative, participates and competes in Speech and Debate, and is a member of the National Honors Society. During his free time, he loves watching all of Shonda Rhimes' shows and House of Cards, running, and playing tennis. This coming year, he hopes to be able to educate all 12,000 members of our district and make sure that all executive board members are accessible to any club that may need assistance.

District Treasurer Katie McNiffe

Katie is currently a sophomore at Jay M. Robinson High School and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. Besides Key Club, she is involved with Younglife and runs on her school's cross country team. She also works at the YMCA as a daycare counselor. During her free time, she loves to watch reruns of Grey's Anatomy and cook. As District Treasurer, she hopes to be able to make the dues process as easy as possible and hopes to provide any type of assistance to our District Board, as well as Key Club members throughout North and South Carolina.

District Editor Lindsey Banks

Lindsey is currently a sophomore at Charles D. Owen High in Black Mountain, NC and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. Besides Key Club, she is involved in Student Government, Journalism, Cross Country, and Track. She loves being outside either hiking, backpacking, or running. During her free time, she loves to read, write, watch ABC sitcoms, run, and draw. As District Editor, she plans to work hard to insure every member is well informed and kept up-to-date with what’s going on in Key Club not only in our district, but internationally.
