District Board Roles and Responsibilities

With dedication and a sincere focus on the members and communities, being an officer on the district board brings unlimited opportunities to not only Key Club, but also each individual. Being a district officer is not easy and takes a lot of time, a love for service, and above all, commitment. By utilizing the International Board, staff, and District Kiwanis committee, board members have the ability to make the Key Club year the best learning experience possible. The friendships and leadership skills developed as a district officer will last a lifetime.

The district board is the main communication support link between Key Club International and club members. The most important function of the district board is to provide support so clubs can provide service to their communities. In addition to the International Bylaws, each district has the autonomy to assign duties to the district officers based on their club and district needs.

The District Governor, Secretary/Treasurer, and Bulletin Editor shall be elected at the annual District Convention. The Lieutenant Governors are elected at meetings of their respective division in accordance with the official Divisional Elections Procedure. If a one third (1/3) quorum of the division's clubs are not represented, the selection of the Lieutenant Governor is the responsibility of the out-going Board of Trustees who shall seek the advice of the club presidents within the respective division.

All officers shall enter upon their official duties immediately following installation (at the annual District Convention), and shall serve for a term of one (1) year or until their successors shall be duly elected and qualified.
