Club Officer Elections

Key Club procedures call for a club officer election in February each year. This allows time for new officers to work with retiring officers during the remainder of the school year. Over the course of this year, many clubs are meeting in different ways or not meeting at all. Due to this, the timing of club officer elections might vary this year. For more guidance on the timing of officer elections, please consult with your student activities office and your principal.
