What does KEY Club mean?
It's an acronym for Kiwanis Education Youth. So no, no key-making lessons here! The reason why it is KEY Club is because, back when the organization was only for males, the members were "key students" who were distinguished among their peers.
How do I register?
To join, just simply attend a Key Club meeting the beginning of the semester and submit your dues , and your club secretary or president will register you as an official key club member.
What if my school does not have a Key Club?
If your school does not have a Key Club, you can head to the New Club Building and Reactivation Committee page to download some resources and try to charter a new club at your school.
What is NYDKC.org used for?
This website is basically an information and update site for the New York District and other Key Club International related news, and we also provide resources for clubs to help their improvement.
How do I find the resources I need for my club?
To find resources to use for the function of your club, you may head to the Resources/Paperwork in the main navigation at the top of this page and click Club Resources.
To find contact information you may need, you may head to the District Board menu and click Contacts on the right navigation. To know who you're looking for, I advise you to ask your fellow key clubbers what division you are in and who is your Lieutenant Governor.
I'm a new secretary and I don't know where to submit my forms.
To find any paperwork that needs to be done, head to the Resources/Paperwork section and either submit it online or download the PDF and mail/email it.
Where do I go to look for project ideas to discuss during a club meeting?
An easy way is to go to the District Projects section and see if any of those projects will interest you because they're fairly important and your club gets credit for it. You can pick some projects, or all, to discuss with your club and ask if they want to work on a project or suggest one during a Divisional.
How do I get important updates and information through email instead of refreshing the website?
For the most part, information is usually sent to emails of all the Subscribers, so just click Subscribe on the right of the main page and enter in your email address to receive the information. Updates will be posted on http://facebook.com/nydkc, just click to be a fan of, or join the group.
The question I want to ask isn't here, who should I contact?
You can always ask your club president, email your division's Lieutenant Governor or the Governor, and if no one responds, try to email an officer through here (simply click on their name). Lastly if no one answers at all, ask it in the Guestbook section.
