Key Club Hierarchy
In Key Club, the KC hierarchy is an inverted triangle. Usually in other organizations the triangle wouldn't be upside down. Members are considered the most important and the most powerful level in the inverted triangle. The members are the people who participates in events and the people who keep things together. Moving under the members are the clubs .Clubs are established in a high school or equivalent institution, or a community-based club may be chartered. Elected officers are president, one or more vice presidents, secretary, treasurer, editor, and one director from each class. Further down is Division. Divisions are made up of various clubs. Each division has a lieutenant governor, a student leader who carries out the district’s policies and provides support to the clubs. Then more down would be district. A district is normally defined by a state, a group of states, or nation and tends to match a similar Kiwanis district. Each district is chaired by a governor, elected by delegates at the district annual convention, and the District Board consisting of executive officers and lieutenant governors, either elected by delegates or appointed by the governor. At last the bottom, which is International. Key Club International encompasses all clubs within the group’s 33 organized districts and in foreign countries that are not included in any specific district. Key Club International is led by the International Board, which is composed of the International president, International vice president, and 11 International trustees, all students and active Key Club members.
