Hello my fellow CKIer’s I hope you have been doing well! I am very happy I got to meet some of you at the Pacific Leadership Academy in Mt. Hood, OR! I wanted to give thanks to all the members, Kiwanians, and Patrick Hall for joining the District Board. I also wanted to thank Gloria Guizar, PNWLA Chair, Shane Petrus, Bulletin Editor, and their team that put this event together. They worked really hard to make it a memorable weekend for the attendees. If you were not able to attend PNWLA, no worries! Our Annual District Convention will be soon! This year, 2018-19, we will be hosting District Convention on February 8-10, 2019 in Hood River, OR at the Best Western Plus Hotel. Please join me and CKI’ers from throughout the district during this weekend to learn, grow, and interact. I also want to take some time and encourage you to run for a District Executive Position. If you are interested, even if you just want to know more about any position, please contact me. I am more than happy to answer any questions that you may have. Friendly reminder, that dues need to be paid by December 1, 2018. If you have any questions, please contact me or Josh Kim, District Treasurer. Happy Thanksgiving, and I wish you all the best on your exams!

Get Competitive was a competition-based event filled with teambui and bonding activities. After a pizza and sushi dinner, challenges tested U members’ collaborative skills (as well as the team’s joint ability to mind-rea flip bottles), and, most importantly, stood as a chance for all members to included and acknowledged on the team. Thanks to this event, fellowship grounded UBC CKI’s first term of the 2018-2019 school year. Weekly meetin monthly fundraisers and events, and volunteering opportunities with Ques Exchange would not be the same without the members’ collective positiv gy, respect for one another, and mutual motivation! - JASMYNE EASTMOND, PRESIDENT
