Paying Dues

International Club Fees

NORTH AMERICA AND CARIBBEAN CLUBS

Each Circle K club shall submit to Circle K International, or its designated fiscal agent, an annual club fee, and membership information for every member, but not including honorary members. All clubs are encouraged to send all fees via traceable means, i.e. certified mail. Clubs must submit payment by check, money order or credit card; cash will not be accepted. A club roster or fees invoice must be submitted at time of payment. Clubs that fail to follow the guidelines for club fee payments will be placed into a special handling group that will delay the processing of fees.

  • Each CKI club in a nation with a per capita gross national income of US $10,000 and from a 4 year institution with an enrollment of over 1,000 students shall pay an annual fee of US $600.
  • Each CKI club from a nation with a per capita gross national income of US $10,000 and from a 2-4 year institution or a 4 year institution with an enrollment of less than 1,000 students shall pay an annual fee of US $450.
  • Each Circle K club in a nation with a per capita gross national income of less than US$ 10,000 shall pay dues of US $150.

SPECIAL NOTE:

Circle K clubs, in good standing, can use the Membership Update Center to add new members and update records after officer elections. The Circle K club’s Kiwanis or faculty advisor should update the club officers at the Membership Update Center. Then, the club secretary or treasurer can follow the easy, three-step process to update membership information and register your club.

  1. Round up information from each new member, including email addresses and expected year of graduation.
  2. Log in and update membership records at www.circlek.org/muc. You are only adding new members during this time. Do not graduate or remove any member on your club’s roster. Graduation and deletions will be completed in September.
  3. Submit payment or print invoice and pay by check. Clubs in good standing have paid their international club fee and district dues for 2017-18. Your club will only be invoiced for district dues of new members added to your roster.

International, district, and club dues are payable on October 1. If clubs do not pay dues by December 1 – (non-US clubs are suspended if not paid by February 1), they will be considered suspended. Suspended clubs lose the right to seat delegates at the district and International convention and their members are not eligible to serve in an elected or appointed office on the district or International level. In addition, members of clubs on suspended status are not eligible to receive scholarships administered by the Kiwanis International Foundation. Suspended clubs are not eligible for awards or recognition in any program administered by CKI.

Many clubs tend to delay the payment of dues until every prospective member has paid. Any dues collected before December 1 should be sent to the International Office before the past due date. Dues can be sent in periodically as they are received.

Circle K clubs on suspended status wanting to pay 2017-18 dues cannot use the Membership Update Center and should follow these steps:

  1. Create a roster (in excel or word). Round up information from each new member, including his or her first and last name, email address and expected year of graduation. Please include a note saying“delete all other members from current roster” to prevent any inaccurate billing for members who are no longer part of your club.
  2. Calculate dues owed. The amount due includes your club’s international club fee ($600, $450, or $300 based on your school’s enrollment plus a per member district due determined by the district. 
    OR 
    Request an invoice.
    To obtain an invoice, email the roster information above to memberservices@kiwanis.org and an invoice will be calculated and  emailed to you.
  3. Identity club. Include club name and ID number on the check.
  4. Mail check and roster. Send to:

Kiwanis International
PO Box 6069 Dept 123
Indianapolis, IN 46206-6069

Update faculty advisor: Only the Faculty Advisor(s) on record at Kiwanis International for your Circle K club may access the Membership Update Center. If the Faculty Advisor name or email needs to be updated, please contact Member Services at memberservices@kiwanis.org or 1-800-KIWANIS x411 before accessing the Membership Update Center.
