A revamped schedule for a whole new experience that builds the area, our clubs, and our members so CKI can be even better.

Beginning with a Friday night spent on Why We Serve and ending with a Sunday morning celebration of the service we’ve done so far, the 58th Annual Alabama District Circle K Convention was built from the ground up to enable CKI do more in Alabama. Convention is new ckiTalks from Circle Kers and Kiwanians on hot-topic issues that effect our organization, an entirely rewrritten training curriculum, refreshed & updated sessions, and a morning of service in the community.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_gmaps link=”#E-8_JTNDaWZyYW1lJTIwc3JjJTNEJTIyaHR0cHMlM0ElMkYlMkZ3d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvbSUyRm1hcHMlMkZkJTJGdSUyRjAlMkZlbWJlZCUzRm1pZCUzRHo4eWZJRm9WcFdaNC5rcDA2SnFYWTZSLU0lMjIlMjB3aWR0aCUzRCUyMjY0MCUyMiUyMGhlaWdodCUzRCUyMjQ4MCUyMiUzRSUzQyUyRmlmcmFtZSUzRQ==”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/3″][meetup_timetable title=”Friday, February 26″][meetup_timetable_content title=”Welcome & Registration” time=”6:00pm – 7:30pm”]Russell Hall Atrium[/meetup_timetable_content][meetup_timetable_content title=”Opening Session” time=”7:30pm – 8:45pm”]Get into convention with club cheers, keynote speaker Tuscaloosa Mayor Walt Maddox, and the beginning of officer elections.[/meetup_timetable_content][meetup_timetable_content title=”Meet & Greet Reception” time=”8:45pm – 9:15pm”]Light hors d’oeuvre and refreshments provided by The University of Alabama President’s Office[/meetup_timetable_content][meetup_timetable_content title=”Why We Serve” time=”9:15pm – 9:55pm”]Celebrate what it means to be a Circle Ker in the Alabama Kiwanis Family with District Governor Jessica and share your service.[/meetup_timetable_content][meetup_timetable_content title=”Night Out on the Quad” time=”10:00pm”]Games, movies, and more across the Quad[/meetup_timetable_content][/meetup_timetable][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][meetup_timetable title=”Saturday, February 27″][meetup_timetable_content title=”Service Projects” time=”8:00am – 11:00am”]Make a difference throughout the Tuscaloosa community with Circle Kers from across Alabama.[/meetup_timetable_content][meetup_timetable_content title=”Club Officer Training” time=”8:00am – 11:00am”]Join other Club Presidents, Vice Presidents, Secretaries, and Treasurers in a completely new training curriculum based on proven practices.[/meetup_timetable_content][meetup_timetable_content title=”Jean Dean Reading is Fundamental Cookout” time=”11:30am – 12:30pm”]It’s a lunch cookout to celebrate the successes of Alabama District Circle K’s commitment to the literacy for the children of Alabama with the Jean Dean Reading is Fundamental program.
