About Circle K
CKI operates on an international, sub-regional, district, divisional, and club level. More than 13,000 members make up about 500 clubs in 30 districts and 17 nations, including Antigua, Australia, Bahamas, Barbados, Canada, Cayman Islands, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Jamaica, Malaysia, México, Nigeria, Panama, Philippines, St. Lucia, Suriname, Taiwan and the United States.
This level is comprised of members within a particular school or university. Here, a board of officers runs the operations of the club. A President, Administrative Vice President, Service Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary make up the Executive Board.
Each club is part of a division, which is comprised of other clubs within a close demographic area. UCSD Circle K is a part of Paradise Division, one of the eight divisions in Cal-Nev-Ha . Our current Lieutenant Governor is San Diego State University's Jesus Agulilar. Our division comprises seven schools that range in location from California to Hawaii. Paradise Division's mascots are a toucan and a pineapple.

Each club in a division then falls under a district which is usually bounded by state lines. During the annual district convention, delegates from all clubs in the district elect a Governor, Secretary, and Treasurer to service on the District Executive Board. A board of district chairs is then appointed in order to carry out specific district focuses and events throughout the year in which clubs from all over the district can participate and attend.
The first Circle K club was founded in 1947, and the California-Nevada-Hawaii District was one of the two founding Districts of Circle K International, along with the Michigan District. California-Nevada-Hawaii was instrumental in the internationalization of the organization. Chartered on December 12, 1957, the district was founded with thirty-one clubs and has grown to over forty clubs at the present.
Our district puts on many exciting events throughout the year, which you can find out more about on the District tab

Every sub-region is a collective of several bordering districts based on size, demographic, and cultures. Every year at International Convention the sub-region elects a Trustee to be the voice and bridge to international.
Of all 30 districts in the organization, they together comprise Circle K International. At this level, there is an International President and Vice President as well as 7 elected Sub-regional Trustees and a Trustee-at-Large. These Trustees carry out the interests of Circle K international as a whole, as well as for each individual sub-region.
