About Circle K International
Circle K International is the largest collegiate community service, leadership development, and friendship organization in the world. Circle K clubs are organized and sponsored by a Kiwanis club on a college or university campus. It is a self-governing organization and elects its own officers, conducts its own meetings, and determines its own service activities. They are unrelated to the other international Circle K organization in Davis.
Circle K is an international community service organization with over 12,600 members worldwide in 18 Nations. Circle K blends community service and leadership training with the opportunity to meet many other college students at service projects, conferences, and conventions.
Each club works closely with their school and local community in planning and implementing projects that best serve the needs of that particular area. Clubs within the same basic geographic area (divisions), also work together on larger projects. On the district level, Our clubs works within the boundaries of California, Nevada, and Hawaii to achieve common goals and service initiatives, coming together at conferences, conventions, and large scale projects (see "events" page). This gives members the opportunity to work closely with and get to know many different people, not just those at their own school.
UC Davis Circle K was chartered on April 5, 1974 and remains one of the oldest Circle K clubs in the California-Nevada-Hawaii District. Currently, there are 88 paid members in the club. Club members are involved with all types of service, including working with children, the elderly, and homeless. The club also works with other organizations on campus and in the community, including SHARE with New Orleans, Woodland YMCA, Yolo County Food Bank, Davis Community Meals, Shriners Hospital, and more.
New members are welcome to join any time during the year! We do service year-round, because service never sleeps! If you're around in the summer and want to be a part of our club, come to one of our meetings to find out more about upcoming summer events.
UC Davis Circle K is open to working with anyone, so if YOU need volunteers at an event or want to work with us, please come out to one of our meetings or contact us via our Service Vice President or Service Chair!
Board of Officers
Circle K International has an executive board (better known as "E-Board") and an appointed board (aka "A-Board"). E-Board consists of the President, the Vice President of Administration, the Vice President of Service, the Secretary, and the Treasurer.
In order to be on E-Board, you must be nominated by a fellow member then elected by the dues-paid members. This process happens every year around February before District Convention (DCon) as the E-Board will go through numerous workshops at DCon, meeting fellow E-Board members from other CKI schools, thus bettering their ability and leadership in running a club.
Once all of E-Board is selected, so begins the appointing of more board members — the A-Board!
It is up to E-Board to choose what A-Board positions should be available to the public of the club. The potential A-Board members will then fill out applications of what A-Board position they so dearly desire and be interviewed by the E-Board. Once all the adequate A-Board positions are filled, so begins another wonderful year for Circle K International.
(Sidenote: To be on board you must be a dues-paid member)
