District Board Member Testimonies
The Governor for the District is one of the most difficult and rewarding opportunities that I have ever had. The role includes responsibilities like travel, meeting planning, communication, and leadership. Due to this position, I have to travel hours almost every other week and sacrifice some of my social life. However, I wouldn't give up this position in a heartbeat. Being Governor allows you to meet new people and make fantastic friends. Throughout my term, I have been able to interact with fellow Key Club members all through the state. The bonds that I have been able to make are by far the strongest I've had in my life. If there is any object to describe the position, it would be a sour patch kid. First, it's sour due to the transition and the responsibilities. Then, it's sweet. The friends and moments that you have are what make this position meaningful. And before you even know it, it's gone. You are left with the passing of the gavel, a final speech, and a lifetime worth of memories.

Secretary Treasurer Testimony:
Hello Indiana Key Clubbers! My name is Hannah Quirk and I am your Secretary/ Treasurer. As sec/treas I take minutes and make a directory of the officers and advisors in the Indiana District. Board meeting minutes are taken so non-board members know what happened at an Indiana District Board Meeting. The Club Officer Directory is used so we can spread the word about upcoming district events to clubs. From time to time, I make a district wide newsletter; this is to ensure that all Key Clubbers know the 4-1-1 about our district. I also volunteer on a club, divisional, and district level. If you want to learn more about how to become the next Indiana District Secretary/ Treasurer, contact myself or your LTG for more info!
Peace, love, Key Club

Lieutenant Governor Testimony:
Lieutenant Governors serve as liaisons between your clubs and the District Board. Each LTG is responsible for keeping every club in their division informed on what's happening on the district level. This includes writing monthly newsletters, holding divisional council meetings, visiting individual clubs, and consistent one on one contact with club board members. Being an LTG will take an amount of dedication and time that can sometimes be hard to fit into a busy schedule, so make sure this is a position you're willing to commit to fully. It's a lot of work, but being an LTG has helped me improve as a person and meet amazing people from all over the state. I have formed so many incredible friendships and met people from all kinds of backgrounds. Additionally, being in this position has helped me become a better leader, discover what I'm passionate about, given me the confidence to be more outgoing, and allowed me to have a platform on which I can better serve my community. This is an experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Key Club is what you put into it, and I am so glad to have put in this much effort.
