The 73rd annual Key Club International Convention (ICON) will be held July 9th – 14th, 2024 in Atlanta, Georgia. Due to the proximity of the convention to our district, this will be a great opportunity to attend ICON at a relatively low price. What a tremendous opportunity for Key Clubbers to spend four days with like minded students from around the Key Club world. At ICON, students  share ideas and motivate each other to continue to serve and lead. In addition, they make lifelong friends. Students who attend the international convention come back with enthusiasm that encourages all members of the club to look for new ways to grow the Key Club and serve others.  

The K-T District is once again offering a tour to the convention. The tour provides students the opportunity to attend the convention and enjoy Atlanta and the surrounding area. One of the many advantages to traveling on the tour is that district adults are able to serve as chaperones for students attending on the KT District Tour.  Here is information on the KT District Tour and a Registration Form. We can accept registrations until May 28 or until all the bus seats are taken and/or our room block fills up.

How to pay for ICON?

Key Club members and Key Clubs are encouraged to fundraise to do their part in paying for ICON. Key Clubbers can do this just so they make it clear that the fundraiser is to raise money for the convention. Many Key Clubbers fundraise enough money to pay for the entire trip.

It is also appropriate to ask your sponsoring Kiwanis Club if they are able to help provide financial assistance to send Key Club members to ICON. Some Kiwanis Clubs are more able to help and some are not, but it is appropriate for you to ask Kiwanis for help.

Don’t miss the experience of ICON 2024. Send in your deposit and registration forms as soon as possible to reserve  your spot on the tour. Feel free to contact Steve Phillips is you have questions or need more information.

Announcement  Regarding Internal Change in the KT District Key Club Adult Committee

Hello everyone,

The Kentucky-Tennessee District Key Club Adult Committee consists of the District Administrator, Assistant Administrator, and Zone Chairs located throughout the K-T District. Every member of this committee is dedicated and committed to serving Key Club and young people. It is a privilege and an honor to serve on this committee and work with the outstanding Key Club members, Faculty Advisors, and Kiwanis Sponsors from all around our great district.

I am writing to inform you of an internal change to the makeup of this committee. 

I am stepping down as district administrator and into a new role on the committee. This is a personal decision I made to allow me to spend more time with family in my retirement. 

I am excited to inform you that Kira Wilburn, a current member of the K-T District Key Club Adult Committee has been appointed as the new Kentucky-Tennessee Key Club District Administrator. This change became effective April 1, 2024. 

Kira is from Ashland, Kentucky, and has worked with Key Club since 2015. She became a member of the K-T District Key Club Adult Committee in 2022.  Kira’s experience as Key Club Kiwanis Advisor, her Key Club District Committee experience, and her administrative skills will ensure a smooth transition and help Kentucky-Tennessee Key Clubs continue to move forward. Our website,, will reflect this change. If you need to reach Kira you may contact her at .

I look forward to continuing to serve on the committee in my new role. With Kira’s leadership, the dedicated district adults, Kiwanis District support, excellent sponsors and advisors, and most of all the outstanding Key Club members, I am confident that Key Club in the K-T District will grow and reach new levels of success.

Many thanks for your continued support.

Steve Phillips
