Conventions, Conferences, & Retreats

Circle K provides numerous opportunities to participate in many activities on both district and international levels. These events can provide leadership training, new friends, service, and fun!

District Convention (DCON)
In March, all the Circle K members in Michigan gather for District Convention. It is a fun weekend filled with service and social activities, a banquet, a dance, workshops, and just hanging out. It is a great time to meet fellow Circle K members from across the state. The 2016 District Convention will be in Detroit, MI and will be hosted by your very own Wayne State University Circle K!

International Convention (ICON)
International Convention is similar to District Convention, except on a much larger scale. There are Circle K-ers from all over the world who attend this five day event. There are informative workshops, awesome dances, inspiring speakers, a creative service fair, entertaining sessions, and the election of the International Board. Almost all International Convention attendees rank this event as one of their best experiences in Circle K. This year, International Convention will be held in San Antonio, Texas. 

Fall Rally
Every October, Circle K members from all over the Michigan District get together for a weekend of team-building, workshops, service and fun! The District Board puts on this event and it is open to any interested members.

Leadership Team Retreat
Every April, the new chairs and Executive Board spend an intensive 24 hours learning leadership skills as they get ready to take on their positions for the following year. They have a chance to set goals, bond as a leadership team, learn more about their positions, share ideas, and relax.

LeadCon is a one-day conference geared towards members who are interested in building their leadership skills or taking on a leadership position in our club. LeadCon will help you to further develop your leadership skills in an engaging, interesting, and interactive manner. You will learn your communication style, how to work better with others, how to improve creativity, and more. If you are thinking about becoming a leader in Circle K, LeadCon is highly recommended. LeadCon is held in January or February each year.

Committee Lock-In
Every October, the committees get together to get to know each other and enhance their leadership abilities. The night is full of icebreakers, teamwork oriented activities, and lots of fun!

Committee Olympics
Every February, the committees compete in a night full of games - Olympic style - to determine which committee really is best! Bragging rights are on the line!
