WHAT IS DISTRICT CONVENTION?
District Convention, commonly referred to as DCON, is a three-day annual convention held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel in Durham, NC. The District Convention and Leadership Conference serve several purposes:
To recognize Key Clubs and individuals for outstanding service during the year.
To build enthusiasm and motivate membership.
To educate and inspire Key Club members.
To train new Key Club officers.
To elect new District officers and conduct the business of the District.
To share ideas, projects, and experiences with hundreds of Key Club members.
To have lots of fun!
District service project
This year, the Carolinas District invites all Key Clubs attending District Convention to participate in our District-Wide Service Project!
Members will have the opportunity to make t-shirt dog toys for the furry friends at Best Friends Pet Adoption. Want to participate? Bring one or two clean t-shirts and you can make several dog toys! Check out the yellow flyer on the right and share it with your club.
Elections and Candidates
If you love Key Club, you might find yourself wondering how you can get involved beyond the club level. If you would like to serve on the District Board with other motivated Key Club members from all across North and South Carolina, District Convention is the time to run! The positions that will be elected at District Convention will be one Governor, one Secretary, one Treasurer, one Editor, and up to thirty-six Lieutenant Governors. For more information on what these positions entail and how to run, take a look at the elections and candidates' packet.
Contests at Convention aim to recognize clubs for their hard work over the course of the past year and also to have a bit of fun. Recognitions range from a large amount fundraised for a preferred charity to awards for the overall most successful clubs, while more hands-on contests like the scrapbook contests and talent contest are also held. For a brief overview of these contests and inspiration on how your club can prepare for them this year, check out the contests packet.
