MEETING MINUTES

KEY CLUB INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF DELEGATES

72nd Annual Convention Key Club International June 26, 2015


Amendment #1
Presented by the Key Club International Board of Trustees


Article V. Organizing and Chartering of Clubs
Section 1. A Key Club may be established in a high school or community-based organization that does not have a chartered Key Club upon petitioning Key Club International.

The voting delegates from Pennsylvania had mixed feelings about this amendment. The delegates that did not support this amendment were concerned that it targeted the KIWIN’S District. [Point of information: the KIWIN’S District and the CALI-NEV-HA District have about 20 schools in which there are two Key Clubs, one representing each District.] The concern was that this amendment could challenge the KIWIN’S District’s ability to charter new clubs. Meanwhile, those in favor of the amendment felt the organization would be better off having one strong club within each school as opposed to having multiple small clubs within each school. There was a proposed amendment to the amendment that would have excluded the KIWIN’S District, but it was not passed. The original amendment (above) was adopted.
