Dear Treasurers,Here is where you may find more information on what Circle K affectionately calls Dues. They acknowledge new and returning members to Circle K, and act as a source of revenue for the New Jersey District. If you are new to the role of Treasurer, two of the most crucial responsibilities that you carry are the collecting and recording
o November 1st is the early bird deadline, meaning your club submitted all its current membership information and payments ahead of time. This can lead to club recognition at awards ceremonies if appropriate applications are submitted.
o November 30th is the deadline to submit all dues to date. New members can join any time, so don’t feel as though Circle K closes down November 30th to interested individuals!
However, it is important to meet these deadlines, for it shows responsibility and our ability in meeting CKI requirements.
In addition, Dues partially fund the successful events that the K-Family comes to expect and appreciate. Such examples are the K-Family Picnic, where last year was our largest turnout since the picnic’s installment, and Club Rally, a fun gathering of the New Jersey District to affirm our efforts at reaching shared goals, such as ELIMINATING Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from the world. Dues may also lessen the costs of Insight and District Convention (D-CON) so that attendance to these other fun and major events are encouraged. For a $10 annual membership (plus any separate amount that home clubs may include), many opportunities are made available, including eligibility for awards and scholarships from both the New Jersey District and Circle K International, as well as all the aforementioned benefits it ensures as a source of revenue.
I challenge each and every one of you to do your best in promoting Circle K to the school you represent; have the best of luck during your year as Treasurer!
Jason N. Dear
