If you came to District Convention (DCON) this year, then you may remember voting for Executive Officers and Lieutenant Governors to represent the District. While we all see the elections at DCON, many people are often still confused about what exactly these officers do.
Lieutenant Governors act as liaisons between the District and Key Clubs across the Carolinas. They typically oversee a division of 5-10 Key Clubs within a certain region and serve as a resource to those clubs for any questions or concerns they may have. Lieutenant Governors also hold meetings with the club officers in their divisions and organize division-wide service projects to bring their Key Clubs together. In addition to their responsibilities to their divisions, Lieutenant Governors also serve on the District Board. This means that they work with the other Lieutenant Governors in the District to implement new programs, work with our service partners, and organize events like Fall Rally and District Convention.
Executive Officers serve as the leaders of the District Board. They oversee the Lieutenant Governors and carry out specific duties related to their positions.
The District Governor is the head executive of the District. They preside over all meetings and represent the District at all conventions and events. They must ensure that each Lieutenant Governor is fulfilling their duties to their divisions and assist Board members with questions or committee work.
The District Secretary keeps records of all District Board meetings and conventions. They also produce the annual District directory, known as the Carolinas Key and assist the District Governor and Executive Board with their duties.
The District Treasurer works to ensure that all Key Clubs pay their required dues by the deadline and keeps records of all dues payment. They also inform the District Board of progress with dues collection and contact suspended or inactive clubs.
The District Editor maintains the District Website as well as all social media accounts responsible for communicating on behalf of the District. They also produce the District's quarterly publication, the Carolinas Blueprint, and oversee Lieutenant Governors' newsletter distribution.
