I’m so ready to go to DCON! What should I pack?

Refer to this Packing List.

Other than workshops, what else is there?

Throughout the weekend there will be guest speakers, an Awards Session, Governor’s Banquet and Ball, House of Delegates, CKI Pool Party, and a Meet & Greet.

What is the House of Delegates? Do I have to be a delegate?

House of Delegates occurs in the late afternoon on Saturday. During this session, the next Governor, Secretary, Treasurer, and International Endorsements will be decided. In addition, any new amendments to the bylaws will be discussed and voted on. Each school in attendance must send two representatives to this session to vote in the best interest of their Key Club. For even more information about House of Delegates contact our Legal, Elections, and Credentials Committee at legal@floridakeyclub.org.

What food should I expect?

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all included on Friday and Saturday, including a banquet meal on Saturday evening. If you prefer a gluten-free or vegetarian diet, ensure that your advisor specifies this when registering your club. Unfortunately, kosher meal requests cannot be accommodated.

How much money should I bring?

Although food is provided Friday and Saturday, you will need money for food Thursday night and Sunday morning. Throughout the conference, there will also be Key Club merchandise on sale and the opportunity to participate in an auction to escort your Lt. Governor to the Governor’s Banquet. So budget carefully!

Once my bus arrives at the hotel, what do we do?

A member of the Registration Committee will board your bus and give you specific directions. Generally speaking, all members should give their forms (if not turned in ahead of time) to the chaperone to turn in when registering. Rooms are not ready until 3 PM, so make sure to take some pictures in front of our photo backdrop and check out the DCON App for more cool things to do.

DCON interferes with my prom/Grad Bash/other event. Can I leave DCON and return?

For everyone’s safety, students must be in their assigned rooms from 12:00 AM to 6:00 AM. Chaperones are responsible for ensuring that their assigned students are in the correct area. If you are found to be in violation of curfew you will you be sent home early from the conference at your own expense.

Will there be leisure time? If so, how can I spend it?

There is definitely enough time to bond with other Key Clubbers outside of scheduled activities. Many attendees choose to spend their downtime either hanging out around the convention center, swimming in the pool, spending time in the lobby, or going back to their rooms for a quick nap.
