Run for District Board Position
Key Club members in the Georgia District are encouraged to run for a district board position for the 2019-2020 year. Lieutenant Governor positions are available and elections will be held at each division’s rally. Three executive office positions will be elected at the conference. Learn more about elections.

Rooming / Shared Rooms
To help minimize costs, all Key Club members attending the convention will be roomed with up to 3 additional students in a room. If a club would like to have a private room for their members, they should either register four members of the same gender *or* contact District Administrator Brad Malone immediately after registering. An additional fee of $125 will apply per student less than four. For example, if two students want to have a room together with no additional roommates, the additional cost will be $250.

Cancellation Policy
No cancellations will be accepted after February 1, 2019. Substitutions of the same gender will be accepted through February 15, 2019. The club/school is ultimately responsible for payment, even if a member registers on their own. An invoice will be sent to the club/school for any registrations that are not cancelled by the deadline, even if those registered do not attend the conference.
