The Circle K International Convention is a yearly gathering of representatives of Circle K clubs from around the world. The convention, which takes place in the three days immediately after the Large Scale Service Project, gathers members from these various clubs in order to foster growth and learning amongst attendees, who then use their new knowledge to improve their home clubs.
ICON attendees participate in various workshops and informational sessions to learn more about the goals of Circle K International for that year, to gain ideas on how to better serve their communities, and to gain the skills to be able to improve their club as a whole.
The attendees also gather to elect the officers of Circle K International for that year, such as the International President, Treasurer, and Secretary, etc. These officers are responsible for overseeing Circle K International as a whole.
Finally, at the end of the convention, attending members gather to give recognition and awards to clubs who have in one way or another shown great achievement in the previous year, such as in the amount of service performed or in membership growth.
International Convention is an unforgettable experience for those who attend, one which leaves them with new skills, knowledge, and new friends from every corner of the world.
