What Does the District Board Do?

Kyle Ingram

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

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.

District Governor

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. 

District Secretary

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.

District Treasurer

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.

District Editor

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.

District Convention 2017

Kyle Ingram

This year, Key Club members from across the Carolinas District met to celebrate a successful year of service and carry out the business for the coming year. This year we had over 600 attendees at our District Convention to learn about their positions, vote in House of Delegates, and listen to amazing guest speakers such as Evan Wesley from the Thirst Project. In addition to the business of the weekend, attendees were also able to experience an amazing Entertainment Session, talent show, and "Under the Stars" dance!

Attendees at District Convention also carried out the important duty of electing their new Lieutenant Governors and Executive Board! Lieutenant Governors were elected by their divisions and the District Elections Committee. Delegates heard from each candidate for Executive office during caucus sessions and then voted at House of Delegates after hearing another brief speech from each candidate. Below you can find information about each of your newly-elected members of the Carolinas Executive Board! 

Meet Your New Executive Board

District Governor Katie McNiffe

Katie is currently a Junior at Jay M. Robinson High School and has been in Key Club since her freshman year of high school. She originally joined Key Club to find service opportunities, but that is not why she stayed; she continued her journey in Key Club after meeting hundreds of incredible members around the district at Fall Rally her first year; after she saw the joy on the faces of those in her community; after she attended District Convention and saw how amazing and united the district is. This year as Governor, she hopes to give this same feeling to all of the members in the Carolinas District.

District Secretary Isabelle Salzmann

Isabelle’s goals as District Secretary are to ensure that the District Board can easily and efficiently collect contact information, as well as serve as a resource to all members of the Carolinas District to ensure that they can work to reach their potential as servant leaders.
