5 School, District, and International Dues

6 How much should club dues be? LAMISSTENN District dues are $13.00 and International dues are $6.50. Club leaders can access the membership center online, register members, and pay both the district and international dues at the same time. Club dues need to be enough to cover these, plus enough to help provide operating money for a club. Some clubs include the cost of their club t-shirt in the local dues; others add in rally fees and travel expenses. Dues should not be a barrier for a student to join Key Club. Interested students should be given the chance to pay their dues over time, find a sponsor, or receive some sort of assistance in paying the full amount, if the need arises.

7 Reasons to Pay dues Makes you an official member of Key Club International Provides service project grants through the Youth Opportunity Fund (YOF) Makes possible the promotion of Key Club throughout the district and the world Provides funds for scholarships Qualifies your club and its officers and members for many awards Qualifies club and members to attend district and international conferences

10 What is a Divisional Rally? This is an event organized and hosted by the Lt. Governors. A Divisional Rally is an opportunity for Key Club members and their sponsors to connect to other clubs. Rallies are usually held at a central location that has enough space to accommodate several schools. Each division’s Lt. Governor works to inform club members, faculty advisors, and Kiwanis advisors about the upcoming event, the cost, and any type of supplies needed for a possible service project.
