greetings pacific northwest cki! Summer has officially come to an end and I wanted to start my letter off by wishing you all a very happy fall and a successful fall term as you embark on yet another year of education! This summer was one of growth, change, and innovation for the PNW CKI District. With the announcement of the PNW Movement, our brand new fall event PNW Summit, and the release of new CLE training materials for club officers, the PNW District is actively changing for the better! To see all the interest and excitement surrounding these changes within the PNW District makes me the happiest Governor possible. Each and every PNW CKI member is hardworking and inspiring in their own way and I will never be able to say it enough that I am truly honored to be your governor. On the topic of new events, our brand new fall event PNW Summit is now right around the corner! This years PNW Summit will be held on the weekend of November 15-17, 2019 at Camp WA-RiKi in Washougal, WA! The cost of attendance will be $50 per member this year, cutting the cost in half when compared to previous fall events! This weekend is currently being planned by the amazing PNW Summit Committee and they are preparing a weekend full of fellowship, service, and fun! Another big event coming up this fall is CKI Week 2019! Taking place during the week of October 14-19 2019, with each day having a different CKI related theme. Circle K International has revealed a brand new CKI Week this year and each day is designed to help CKI members share their personal Circle K experience! For a complete guide to CKI Week, check out https://www.circlek. org/service. I also wanted to take this opportunity to thank each and every club officer board for working with their LTG’s and District Board members to schedule and attend their CLE Training. This is a crucial part to every club officers term as this training prepares a club board to lead their clubs to be successful and enjoyable for all members! Your participation in this training is a way for the District Board to ensure that we are providing all the help possible to our club officers! This upcoming fall is an exciting time for PNW CKI and I am so excited to see what each and everyone of you accomplishes! I hope to see you all soon at PNW Summit! Love,

Mia Munoz Mia Munoz PNW Circle K District Governor munozm4@wwu.edu

THE PNW M TARGETING ISSUES ON

DIVERSITY, EQ

Summary by Mia Munoz & Shane Petrus The PNW Movement is CKI’s path to maximum potential. By targeting issues surrounding diversity, equity, and inclusion within our organization, we will be able to recognize specific weaknesses within. Whether its membership, satisfaction and engagement, quality of service, or the multitude of leadership opportunities; CKI’s internal problems can be solved through the implementation of strategic planning, rebranding, and training. Diversity and inclusion is a hot topic in today’s social climate. Companies and organizations all around the world have made strides in ensuring that their brand is inclusive, equitable, and accessible. In turn, most organizations that successfully implement proper strategies to target prominent issues see great return, both internally and externally. Higher engagement levels in accordance with higher membership are the result of members seeing the true value in joining a college experience like CKI.

Coined as the PNW Movement, our district is pushing for international recognition of the issues facing our organization today. This year, our district plans to implement internal strategies, create effective resources, and rebrand our district to be representative of today’s collegiate demographic. This Governors Project is different from many others. We believe that before helping others, we must learn to help ourselves. How can we serve the children of the world if we aren’t able to serve our organization?

It targets issues that are a true reality for clubs and members on all levels of the Kiwanis Family, and it’s a project that needs support to gain traction. Being a long-term Governors Project will allow easier turnover, achievable goals, and the ability to thoroughly analyze the solutions to our problems. In the future, we plan to analyze and amplify the results of our strategy From here, we can promote our Movement, and push the idea further on the international level. We strive to make an impact in our communities, and our organization as a whole.

HIGHLIGHTS

SERVICE


UNIVERSITY OF PORTLAND HOMELESS OUTREACH AT ST. ANDRES BASSETTE

Members from the University of Portland went out on a Friday night.. to St. Andres Bassette! There, the members served the homeless population an evening meal at the Hospitality Center in the church. Students were able to serve over 50 people. Guests were greeted, dinner was distributed, stories were shared and jokes were made. Members and the CKI officers bonded over navigating downtown and helping each other out at the volunteering site. It was a successful first club outing of the year! - Pema Dema, Club President

UNIVERSITY OF THE FRASER VALLEY EXAM SURVIVAL KITS FOR STUDENTS OF UFV

UFV Circle K held a service/recruitment project for all students called Exam Survival Kits. The kits contained stress-reducing items such as candy, school supplies, tea bags, and silly putty. These items were put into treat bags with a note tied around the bag to show the contents inside, while also encouraging UFV students to join Circle K. The Kits were handed out to students during one of UFV’s annual events called “The Long Night Against Procrastination (LNAP)”. This event is where both students and professors stay late at UFV, so students can catch up on their course work, attend various de-stress workshops, play de-stress games, and have more opportunities to ask their professors for help in their courses. - Sruti Nagalla, District Secretary


KFR UPD ATES WITH JULIANNA SMITH

I hope you all have been having an amazing start to the school year! I am very excited to be a part of the District Board as your Kiwanis Family Relations Chair. As you may already know, Circle K International is just one part of an entire service organization family. This includes K-Kids, Builders Club, Key Club, Kiwanis International and of course us, CKI! Each branch of the K-family has its own amazing culture, and set of leaders. However, what connects us is our commitment to service. It is my goal this year to help organize and facilitate stronger commicationation between the branches of the K-Family in the PNW. Right now, working alongside the district board, we are planning new ways to work together in service and fellowship with each other. One of those plans include an interactive map that allows all branches of Kiwanis to easily identify K-Family members on a geographic scale. I plan to keep you all updated as we navigate this plan throughout the year. Many of us join a branch of the Kwanis Family within an important time in our lives. We join Key Club in high school, and at this point in our lives, everything was changing and we were having to think about our futures once we graduated. Upon stepping on that college campus, we join Circle K, where new challenges are met as you enter a new area to further your education. Lastly, we have our Kiwanians, a network of adults around the world with the motivation and drive to serve the children of the world. One of my favorite professors has always told me that everyone has the ability to be an educator. I plan to make that statement as a defining responsibility of the KFR chair. Every member of each branch holds an incredible amount of knowledge, and I encourage all branches to reach out to each other and see what knowledge and stories the others hold. If we incorporate more welcoming and collaborative communication, we not only will we strengthen our clubs respectfully, but we will also increase the power we have together; the power of people working towards the betterment of society. Respectfully,

Julianna Smith
