Key Club September News Letter: Key Club Sept 2014 pdf
Hello All Key-Clubbers!!
We are nearing the end of our service year, and the time has come for our officer elections! This year, most of our officers are seniors, so that means for the upcoming service year, there will be many officer positions to be filled by active Key-Clubbers! The officer election will be held after school March 12th, where the candidates will each give a brief speech and then the general body will vote! If you are interested in becoming an officer, you can download an officer application form from the Downloads tab on this website. Please fill it out and submit it to Mr. Trinkner BEFORE the election. Officer positions will be based 50% on the general body vote and 50% on the opinions of Mr. Trinkner on the written applications. There will be lots of seats to fill the upcoming service year, so please consider trying out for a officer position, because as we can attest, they are very rewarding positions!
We look forward to seeing many candidates and members at the upcoming election!
