  • Later, we'll head to see a Texas Rangers v. Boston Red Sox game in Dallas and then see a fireworks show for the 4th of July!
  • The next day, we'll visit the Dealey Plaza and Book Depository Museum where we'll learn about the conspiracy theories surrounding JFK's assassination and see the historic spot where it happened. 
  • After the convention, we'll stop in Houston to tour the Johnson Space Center and then make our way to New Orleans!
  • When we arrive in New Orleans, we'll go on a carriage ghost tour through the streets and visit the French Quarter, Jackson Square, and Cafe Du Monde!

The Convention

The annual Key Club International Convention (ICON) is an amazing event to experience. From International Board elections, to meet-and-greet sessions with Key Clubbers from around the world, ICON is an exciting and educational experience that you're sure to love. We'll spend our time at the convention listening to inspiring motivational speakers, attending informative and helpful workshops, and dancing the night away with our fellow Key Clubbers at both of ICON's annual dances. Whether it be experience, excitement, or entertainment, this convention has it all! 

For more information about ICON visit http://www.keyclub.org/events/convention.aspx. To register for the convention and Carolinas District Tour fill out the Registration Packet here by May 1st!

We look forward to seeing you there!

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

When she’s not participating in Key Club events, Isabelle enjoys volunteering at Gigi’s Playhouse, a Down syndrome achievement center in Raleigh, as well as participating in Science Olympiad, fencing, cheerleading, playing piano, reading, and kickboxing. 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.

District Treasurer Avery Freeman

Reminder: Regional Meetings are Soon!

Regional Meetings 

Make sure to keep in touch with your Lt. Governor regarding your Regional Meeting; for most of you, it's less than a week away! Each meeting, unless noted otherwise, will be held on the February 15. Regional Meetings are irreplaceable opportunities for you to run for or elect a new Lt. Governor for the 2014-2015 Key Club year; hear more about upcoming events, such as District and International Convention; learn about our Key Club service projects; and collect ideas to make a difference in your home, school, and community. Ideally, each club would send their advisor and at least two club members. However, the meetings are designed for everyone in your club to attend.

Please take advantage of this great chance to meet clubs from your division and region, get your club more involved on the district level, and possibly become a Lt. Governor yourself! If you are responsible, willing to devote your time and effort, and passionate about strengthening your communication and leadership skills, please consider running for Lt. Governor. Commitment forms can be found under the "About Us," - "Running for District Office" tabs, and your Regional Meeting location and time are listed under the "Events" - "Regional Meetings" tabs.

If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact your Lt. Governor!
