Descriptions


Alumni & Kiwanis Family Relations Committee Chair

Are you a master of the K-Family? Want to help bridge the gap between New York District Circle K and other K-Fam branches? This committee will work with New York District K-Kids, Builder’s Club, Key Club, Aktion Club,  Kiwanis, and the New York District Circle K Alumni Foundation members to promote unity, membership, and plan Kiwanis Family events. This committee will work to help recruit more Key Club alumni into our clubs, encourage graduating CKI members to join Kiwanis Clubs and our Alumni Association, and also help our clubs to network with local K-Family branches and hold Kiwanis Family Relations events.


Awards Committee Chair

Help our NYCKI members get recognized for their hard work! This committee will work to organize and create the 2017-2018 district awards process and applications, working closely with the district officers and communicating with clubs once the applications have been rolled out. The committee will also assist the ConCon committee with superlative awards at other district events. Have cool awards ideas? Want to help promote our award and scholarships? This is the committee for you.


Club Building & Strengthening Committee Chair

Charter new clubs, strengthen our existing clubs, and reactivate inactive clubs by working directly with club officers, LtGs, administrators,  and the governor. This committee will also be observing and analyzing our clubs in order to determine their strengths and how we can best help them as a district as well as ensuring club officers are properly trained.


Conferences and Conventions

Love organizing and planning events? This committee will work with a team of members from across our district to host our 3 annual district events: the District Large Scale Service Project, New York Speaking Conference, and District Convention. From picking event themes to working with workshop presenters and getting service opportunities together—the ConCon committee is always fun and exciting, but takes a lot of hard work and preparation!


Laws & Regulations Committee Chair

Most people haven’t read the NY District Bylaws, but if you’re interested in learning more about how our organization is structured, want to help us upkeep our governing documents, and work with clubs on reviewing their club constitutions, this is the committee for you!


Marketing Committee Chair

Get our word out, improve our organizational brand, and work to improve our presence throughout New York. This committee will oversee our various social media platforms, help clubs with making promotional materials, implement the brand guide, and create and organize marketing plans and promotions for our own district initiatives, events, and more! You will also head the media team at all district events in charge of photography and videography. 


Service Initiatives Committee Chair

Promote our New York District service initiatives and work with clubs to provide new and exciting service opportunities to our members, as well as forming and organizing campaigns and promotions for our various service partners and preferred charities.


Technology Committee Chair

Work on the design, upkeep, maintenance, and improvement of our district website, nycirclek.org, as well as assisting in all other technology related needs. (We currently run our website through WordPress—It’s easy to learn).

CKI Service Week 2017

Service Week SliderThis week is CKI service week! This year our subregion has been assigned to the project Students Team Up to Fight Hunger or STUFH. STUFH started in 1999 as an end-of-the-semester food drive, and has been growing ever since. STUFH aims to feed those in need while simultaneously spreading awareness of the issue by partnering with college students. Their main 3 campaigns are Food Fight, STUFH the Bus, and end-of-the-semester food drives. Start off your club with STUFH this week by finding local partners and checking out the CKI STUFH Resource Guide.
