Be a part of the district board
Being a part of the Key Club district board is a life-changing experience. As the world's largest student-led community service organization, Key Club provides servant-leadership opportunities at all levels.
Read more on how you can run for a position on the district board that is elected at the annual Service & Leadership Conference.
The following positions on the Georgia District Key Club Board will be available for the 2020-2021 year (the Key Club year is from Service Leadership Conference to Service Leadership Conference).
All board members must agree to the following:
Attend all district board meetings (see below for dates/locations)
Attend all district-wide events (Georgia Leadership Training Conference and Georgia Service and Leadership Conference at the beginning and end of their terms).
Attend the Key Club International Convention (need-based grants are available)
Other responsibilities as outlined in the respective position’s contract
Note that each board member will have an expense account to cover the costs of performing their duties adequately (including travel expenses). The Georgia District will work with each individual board member to ensure that financial burdens are minimized.
District board members will be required to miss school due to events and meetings throughout the year. The district works to minimize the amount of school that will be missed, but it is impossible to avoid altogether.

There are 15 lieutenant governors that serve on the Georgia District Board – one for each of the 15 divisions. Lieutenant governors are responsible for the Key Clubs in their division to ensure that they are informed of all Georgia District and Key Club International initiatives and events. In addition, lieutenant governors must also ensure that the clubs in their division pay dues promptly during their term.
Lieutenant Governor elections will occur at Divisional Rallies in January/February. Only one candidate per club may run for Lt. Governor.
Each candidate will have two minutes maximum to give a speech.
A period of three minutes will be available for each candidate for questions (can be asked by any Key Club member in their division).
Once each candidate has spoken, voting will take place by the official delegates from each club in attendance from that division.
Executive board positions include those of governor, secretary-treasurer and bulletin editor. These three positions carry the most power in the district, in addition to the most responsibility. Candidates must have exemplary leadership and time-management skills in order to be elected. All executive positions are elected at the annual convention – completed/signed contracts must be presented to the District Administrator on the Friday night of the Service & Leadership Conference. If any of the executive positions are not filled at convention, the governor will accept applications and fill the positions with appointments.*
Specific details about each position can be found in the following contracts:
Committee chairs are appointed each year by the district governor during the three weeks following the Service & Leadership Conference. Committee Chairs include (subject to change):
