Why Apply

Read below to see the perks and benefits that come with the position in New York District Key Club, or International Council!

When deciding between a District and International position it is important to remember that the higher the position, the less direct communication with members. District officers are expected to communicate with club officers in addition to Lt. Governors, but Trustees are only required to communicate with their assigned Governors. Trustees may choose to communicate directly with Lt. Governors, or with the Lt. Governors through the Governor, but it can be difficult to communicate with club officers when there are so many other responsibilities. If you are passionate about getting directly involved with the members, you may lean more towards a District position.

District and International positions may come with new responsibilities but they do not diminish pre existing responsibilities to home clubs and divisions. Key Clubbers who are elected to higher offices are expected to maintain their current level of involvement with their clubs and should serve as role models to other members.

You have the opportunity to make a long-lasting change on the opportunities that future Key Clubbers will have in their home clubs, divisions, and district.

District and International positions require a significant time commitment, and these officers must be skilled with time management. It is easy to become overwhelmed when serving at these levels of Key Club, but the work you are expected to do will not decrease. If you struggled with managing your time on the club or division level, you may need to reconsider running for higher office until you can guarantee that you are prepared to take on more responsibilities.

Key Club offers many different leadership opportunities, and although the options may seem overwhelming at first, each position is unique in its responsibilities. Before deciding what position is right for you, you must know your strengths and what aspects of Key Club you enjoy most.
