Pennsylvania DeMolay has held the KeyMan Conference, an annual event usually held at the Masonic Conference Center-Patton Campus, for the past 35 years. The conference brings together members from DeMolay in Pennsylvania and many other Jurisdictions across DeMolay International, for various training sessions and fun activities. It has become a staple in the culture of PA DeMolay and promotes the correlation between learning and fun. This year, the conference was held virtually using live stream media promoted through Facebook, Vimeo, and the PA DeMolay website.
The KeyMan Summit and Keynote Series provided content created by DeMolay Advisors and outside presenters airing on Tuesdays and Thursdays between July 21 and August 13, 2020. Discussion topics included being the best leader you can be, knowing ways to communicate with others, the importance of community, and many more useful topics that can help enhance the DeMolay experience. The conference was free for all who attended, while a councilor kit was made available for $20. The councilor kit included a KeyMan 2020 t-shirt, a pair of headphones, a notebook, stickers, and a KeyMan branded bandana.
Each member from Pennsylvania DeMolay received the councilor kit for free, thanks to the donations of the PA DeMolay Legionnaires. A portion of the money from each councilor kit was donated to the PA DeMolay state charity, the Children’s Dyslexia Centers. Chapters were also given the opportunity to match or make separate donations as well. Over $2,000 was raised and donated to the Children’s Dyslexia Centers through the KeyMan promotion.
