United Divisions sign now

The recent amendment that will be "Limiting the size of Key Club Divisions" that was approved on February 29, 2008 at the Board of Trustees Meeting in Denver, Colorado largely ignores the interests of Divisions. Despite allowing Lieutenant Governors and Governors to more properly govern respective Districts and Divisions, it completely and selfishly ignores Division 22 Menehunes of District Cal-Nev-Ha. Splitting Division 22 in half not only greatly increases the costs in travel for LTGs in the state, but also eliminates long-standing traditions and organizational prompts set up for over forty years, which includes our annual Convention held in February of each year.

This document directly contradicts the Key Club International Motto: "Caring - Our Way of Life" by discouraging unity amongst clubs in Hawaii and clubs in Hawaii with California and Nevada. It sets up complications in splitting a Division that is already divided by four islands.

The plausible solution is to split the clubs as "Oahu" and "Maui, Kauai, and the Island of Hawaii". However, only eight clubs compose the outer islands, meaning two clubs on Oahu will likely be designated to the new Division. The resulting conflict of interests will not only divide our Division even greater than the oceans already do, but put further strain on the value of "aloha" that surely the International Board cannot comprehend.

Surely we are not ignoring the entire backlash of such an Amendment upon other Divisions as well. The possible assimilation of clubs nowhere near each other into a Division lacks any moral reasoning. The possible splitting of clubs who have worked together for years in a partnership could result in the fall out of many clubs that rely on others for help.

However, those who wish to keep the Divisions as it is still have a hope, and that is to appeal to the Board of Trustees to not adopt this amendment at the International Convention later this summer. That gives us nearly four months to attempt to stop this proposition from becoming permanent.

If you feel that Division 22 should remain a united Division as it has been the last four decades, please sign this petition. Key Club is a club meant to raise good citizens through the vessel of service, and by all means, you are being a Key Clubber right now by being a public advocate of a good cause. Serve your community by ensuring that in the future Key Clubbers will be able to know Division 22 the way it is now, as one loving Ohana.
