What are dues?

  • Dues are a small amount paid by Key Club members in order to belong to Key Club International. In the Illinois-Eastern Iowa District, dues are $12.00 ($7.00 goes to International and $5.00 goes to district). However, clubs may also charge an additional amount for fundraising/housekeeping purposes.

Why should I pay dues?

  • The Illinois-Eastern Iowa district uses dues to for its officer/board budget and fund events such as the annual District Convention, where Key Clubber from all over the district spend a weekend together to celebrate the new Key Club year and enjoy some Key Club fun. Dues are also used in providing members with printed copies of resources such as the district mailing and Iolian.
  • International also uses the money to create and distribute materials such as various promotional materials, posters, and the Key Club magazine through the Key Club Website; for your membership card and pin; for the administrative/officer/board budget; for the Youth Opportunities Fund (YOF); International Convention; and Recognition Awards.

Regular Deadline: December 1st

What if I don’t pay dues?

  • If you as an individual do not pay dues, then you are not considered in “good standing” with Key Club International. This makes you unable to hold office at any level-club, district, and international, prevents you from attending conventions, and renders you ineligible for any District or International scholarship opportunities.
  • If a club fails to submit dues, it could become suspended or inactivated (inactivated clubs require an addition fee to be reinstated) as well as become ineligible for any awards, honors, or grants such as the Youth Opportunities Fund grant. After a long enough period of time, the club’s charter could be revoked.
