Virtual Meeting Kits & Global Leadership Certificate

Key Club Meeting Agenda

Joint School-Community Reflection

Before this meeting, assemble a project planning team with club officers and three to five club members. As a team, meet with the school administrator who collaborates with Key Club and review guidelines for a potential community event. There might be some approvals needed by school administrators before club planning begins. In addition, identify other school or community groups that might want to participate in a community event. It could be conducted virtually or in person depending upon the school and community’s status and regulations.

b. After you reflect, have club members share their experiences from this year. Try this example activity: Give every member a piece of paper.
