Secretary Update – January

Secretary Update – January

What’s up Texas – Oklahoma!

I hope every one of you had a fantastic winter break. Can you believe that we are in our final stretch of our terms?!? Here are a few updates from me.

District Convention 2017:

There are only 3 more months until DCON 2017! I hope you guys are just as excited as I am for District Convention this year.  I hope all of you are able to attend this year’s magical convention, so I can put faces to names. Not only that there will be many great forums to attend to gain a better grasp of your officer duties as a secretary and other leadership skills. I also highly encourage all secretaries to go out for the Distinguished Secretary Award at DCON. Be sure to keep a lookout for the resource packet so you and your club can start registering for DCON as soon as possible.

Reporting:

I am amazed by how much reporting has grown in our district so far this year. We are in our final quarter of reporting until DCON. So keep on that amazing reporting by making sure you are serving your community to its fullest and submitting reports on the 5th of each month. You should have feedback for every report you have sent to me. If you are missing a month in which you have submitted a report or have questions about my feedback, please email me at secretary@tokeyclub.com. If you have not heard already I will be sending out Novembers Monthly Report Feedback with December’s Feedback. So be sure to keep a look out for those! Also as an early heads up March Reports are DUE APRIL 1st.

Please make sure you are sending your monthly reports to the correct address. They should be sent to me at this address:

7980 Blue Bonnet St.

77713 Beaumont, TX

Secretary Resources:

Ever in need of help with reporting? Well no need to fear, there are many resources that can be found right here on tokeyclub.com! All secretary resources can be found under the resources tab towards the top of this page. Once there, you will find the most up to date reporting forms, sample reporting pages, reporting tutorials, duties of a club secretary, and the Jolly Book of Wisdom. I highly recommend the usage of all of these resources and don’t forget I am also always here to help you as well!

Annual Achievement Report: 

The Annual Achievement Award is given to clubs directly from Key Club International. This is how clubs become distinguished on the international level for the service and other activities. Through this award, a club may be eligible to become a “Distinguished Club” or  “Diamond Level – Distinguished Club.” Last year only one club from our district received this award at International Convention and the year before that two clubs. Let’s show the rest of the Key Club districts how mighty the T-O district really is! If you have any questions regarding on how to fill out the forms, please ask!
These forms are not due until April, but I would like to start emphasizing this starting now. Let’s show international where the best clubs are at!
The following links will take you to the Annual Achievement report form and the Contest and Awards guidelines in our bylaws:
