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.

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.

What is District Convention?

Anjali Venkat

Many of you Key Clubbers are probably wondering, what is DCON? Why is my Lieutenant Governor talking about this? Why should I go? These are all very important questions and here are all the answers.

District Convention, commonly known as DCON, is the time of the year where all Carolinas Key Clubbers come together in Durham, North Carolina to learn, meet new friends, elect the next year's leadership and have fun. With dynamic workshops for officers, general members and candidates, the convention provides an opportunity for all to learn and grow as Key Clubbers and leaders. With fun sessions like the Talent Show and the Service Olympics, Key Clubbers are able to express their talents and skills in all sorts of ways. Key Clubbers who also aspire to become strong leaders in their community and on a larger scale can run for Lieutenant Governor or even a District Executive position. The opportunities are endless at District Convention! For just one weekend, this event is packed with great experiences. Be sure that you clear your schedules for the weekend of March 13-15!

Remember to be sure to keep a lookout on the front page for Registration forms! For now, check out the District Convention page for even more information! The Carolinas District hopes to see you there in a couple of months!
