Each year the California- Nevada-Hawai'i District of Circle K International hosts an event called District Convention. Here, clubs from all over the three states come together to celebrate the three tenets that our organization follows: Service, Leadership, and Fellowship. Members can develop themselves as student leaders and professionals through the many workshops we provide and our professional exposition, participate in our on-site service project, and network with people from all different backgrounds. We also use District Convention as a time to celebrate our achievements throughout the term and elect our future leaders. No matter what you're in the market for, District Convention can provide you with a wide range of experiences. Join us at our 65th Annual CNH District Convention at the Riverside Convention Center from March 22nd to 24th, 2019.

Name exchanges must be submitted before FEBRUARY 22, 2019. Last-minute exchanges thereafter may only be made due to emergencies.
As for hotel swaps, the hotel WILL NOT allow any changes on-site, so please make sure to contact the Riverside Marriott for any changes or swaps by Wednesday March 20, 2019.
If there are any inconsistencies when matching members to their designated room, or proving they are registered with the hotel, the members will not be able to pick up their Convention Registration packet. Be sure all your members are properly registered and accounted for in Convention AND Hotel Registration!

ANSWER: For Kiwanians, you may register them on the same spreadsheet as you will use for your members. In the drop down bar where you would typically select "Circle K/club member," select the title that corresponds to them such as "Advisor" or "Kiwanian." Make sure you ask if they would like to attend the entire event or just a certain day. There is another option for if they feel more comfortable registering themselves, go ahead and direct them to the registration link and offer assistance if they need it.
ANSWER: For Circle K alumni and guests that do not take either title, they must first obtain approval from District Administrator Armando Velazquez before beginning the registration process. As soon as the alumnus or guest decide that they would like to attend DCON, they or their Circle K member affiliate must send an email to the VIP & Entertainment Chair, Clifford Kaunang ([email protected]), containing the following information:
Name of alumnus or guest
Their phone number
Why they would like to attend DCON
From there, the VIP & Entertainment Chair will group the emails from the same day or two and send them to District Administrator Armando Velazquez for approval. If and when approved, the VIP & Entertainment Chair will notify the sender as soon as possible. Then, approved alumnus or guest may begin the registration process. Please note: the registration deadlines apply to everyone wishing to attend DCON. The earlier the email is sent and the alumnus or guest is approved, the better. Attendees aside from Circle K members are not required to stay at the hotel.
ANSWER: Hotel parking is $12 per 24 hours contrary to the hotel website. When paying for parking at District Convention, make sure to note that you are with the Kiwanis event, so the discount for parking will reflect accordingly. Convention parking is $8, however, the convention center is not liable for any cars parked there. Hotel parking is recommended.
