Hello! Welcome to the 2020-2021 Service Year. I am Carson Bloomingdale your new District Editor and I am super excited to get started!

A little about me…
I am a third year studying Computer Science at Rochester Institute of Technology. I was my club’s editor 2018 – 2019 as I was New York District Marketing Chair 2019 – 2020!

I am incredibly excited to be able to help guide you guys through this year. My primary concern is you guys, the club editor’s.
It is my job to provide guidance to you throughout the year.
I want you guys to be able to ask me anything throughout this year, so this will be my first of many sessions where we get together and talk about our plans for this year.
This training will be geared towards you getting comfortable in your role and teaching you about some tools which can potentially help you in the new year.

Presentation HERE!

When 2 Meet

Please check your inbox for your respective When 2 Meet for your subgroup!

If you have concerns about the schedule feel free to contact me ahead of the meeting. This first Training is super preliminary and it will give you a lot of information for you to reference in the future. I recommend keeping the information in the training alongside you throughout the year.

This training is FOR YOU meaning…

– If you aren’t getting enough good information from a tutorial on a topic, let me know. (I have about 5 trainings in the future planned spanning from topics in Canva, Mailchimp and Basic Web Design.)

– If there is a topic you want/need to know about sooner, let me know. This second half of the year is hard on us as editors, people are reaching out asking if they can get things onto your social media accounts to promote the club, or your club might be promoting initiatives on Facebook/Instagram meaning you are under a lot of new pressure which you don’t have a lot of time to prepare for! 

– If you want a one-on-one ASK, I am super available during this times to just sit and work on your Club Branding with you. 

– Speak up, ask questions. I am a FAST talker and I really appreciate when people slow me down!

– Let me know what works for you, do you like me Training in a call where you can ask questions in a group setting, or would you prefer me to record these on my own time and distribute and then you could ask questions on the side, I am all ears. I think that group situations allow everyone to benefit, the question you thought of but solved on you own…. Someone else in the group might have the same question! So speak up for the betterment of everybody in the call.

Future Communications
 

Editor Emails – Will be coming out often with information on the upcoming trainings, templates, and guides and etc. These will also be posted to nycirclek.org/editor so that you can reference them!

Trainings – Happening Monthly and in small groups based on divisions! 

15 minute meeting – Every Two Weeks DURING THE SEMESTER. These are to answer three questions:
– What are you working on?
– What is blocking you?
– What are you going to do next?
(We can talk about starting these now?)

One-on-ones – AS NEEDED I am super open to just sitting on a call and working on getting you the info you need to progress in your position

Guides – I intend on creating guides that will go along with any training or
workshop that I do.

Important Resources
 
I have created a drive file of important resources which you can access by going to:
nycirclek.org/editor/resources

On top of that, I am putting all of the resources in one place, if you need anything, a refresher on my last email – getting my Canva templates or accessing the resources, you can go to nycirclek.org/editor

Closing Remarks
 

Respond to this with your favorite animal! Mine is for sure CORGIS! I cannot wait till I graduate and am able to take care of my first corgi. I have been so close sooo many times to just buying a corgi! I have stopped myself though because when I am a dog parent – I want to be a good dog parent!

March Seneca Division Updates

Hello Seneca Division!

What's up Seneca Division! With the end of our service year in sight, I thought it was about time I sent out my last updates email. It's been a wild ride, and to think it's ending during an extremely tense time for the world is absolutely crazy to me. Thanks for sticking it out this year with me, I hope my long boring emails haven't been too bad for all of you. I'm also so excited to announce that we have elected our Seneca LTG for 2020-2021, and you can read all about her below!

Say hello to your new Seneca Lieutenant Governor for 2020-2021, Yuan Shang!
 

Hi Circle K’ers! I’m Yuan from the University of Rochester, and I’m so excited to be the LTG of Seneca Division next service year and cannot wait to meet and chat with you! I am currently a junior, double major in Public Health and Brain and Cognitive Science, minor in Japanese. As the current Vice President of U of R Circle K, I enjoyed my time with other Eboard and general members doing Service and fellowship together as well as all the experiences at the previous Divisionals and District events. The friendships, novel experiences, and the supportive environment for personal growth are the most attractive things for me as a Circle K’er. As what is said in the Circle K Pledge, “to uphold the Objects of Circle K International, to foster compassion and goodwill toward others through service and leadership, to develop my abilities and the abilities of all people, and to dedicate myself to the realization of humanity's potential”, I would like to be a better person and to help others to be a better version according to themselves. By becoming your Lieutenant Governor, I will try my best to help you become the one you want to be, and at the same time, I will be a better version of myself. Let’s communicate, have fun, and enjoy life!

Report Forms

MRFs and FRFs are still due on the 5th of every month as well, so please don't forget to fill them out!

Make sure to check in with your counterparts to make sure that you're up to date with all your forms! We're coming to the end of the service year, so be sure to finish these up so your successor doesn't have to worry about it!

Monthly Report Form
Fundraising Report Form
What's up in Seneca?

Seeing as how it's dangerous to attend any public gatherings, we won't be having a March divisional, and I'm going to recommend not attending many service events until the CDC tells us otherwise, and even if don't consider yourself at risk, you can still spread the virus further so please be careful out there.
 

Online Club Board Elections
If you haven't held your club elections yet (don't be stressed if you haven't, many clubs have not yet), you're probably going to want to start thinking about holding them online. I recommend sending an email out to your members detailing each position, along with an interest form or asking them to reply if they're interested. After, you can either hold a video call for the elections or have it done through a google form within a certain period of time.

If you'd like to talk with me about more of the details, please reach out ASAP. Even if we can't be holding club events right now, we want to make sure that in the Fall you and your club will have a new board ready to go.

THANKS FOR SUCH A GREAT YEAR!

Serve-a-thon 2019 Group Picture
 
It's been such an awesome year, seeing the clubs of our division come together to do service, seeing the officers of our clubs give it their all to make them the best they can be, and seeing our members fall in love with Circle K like many of us have was truly a sight to behold. At the beginning of this year, I thought I couldn't get any more into Circle K than I already had, but this past year has taught me otherwise. I'm not just in Circle K for the service, my own club, or even my own division anymore. I'm here because of the amazing people that strive to make Circle K what it is, and I wouldn't have it any other way. And I cannot wait to see how far we'll go next year!
Coehl's Final Ramblings
 

Holy moly, this is it. The last updates email for my term. It honestly feels like yesterday that I got pinned at DCON, and started working on my first email. Writing these rambling sections specifically has always been the part I've enjoyed the most, and has let me kind of express my thoughts on something that's been on my mind.

With that being said, I'm both happy and sad that this term is coming to an end. At DCON, I spent a good amount of time thinking back through my experiences not only this year, but the past 3 years I've been in Circle K, and I can say for sure that this year was by far the most fun out of all of them. I got to meet so many new people, grow pretty damn close to some of them, and see my own club and division become such outstanding examples of why I want to stay in Circle K for another year.

To whoever actually reads my emails (I know there are more of you than I give credit and thank you for always reading these weird sections at the end), thanks for listening to my ramblings. I hope it was at least somewhat entertaining.

Thanks for a great year, and I'd like to end with my favorite quote, the one thing that I've always thought back to throughout this year.
 

You can pretend to care,
But you can't pretend to show up.

Catch y'all on the flip side.
