Membership Recognition Program
The Membership Recognition Program (MRP) is the largest way we recognize member from all over the California-Nevada-Hawai’i district. It recognizes members who have shown dedication in our three tenets: service, leadership, and fellowship. Members are recognized at the district level during Fall Training Conference and District Convention. In order to achieve an MRP ranking, you need to be dues-paid, reach a specific number of service hours, and complete a specific number of tags.

- Dues-Paid – Full dues paid to both the California-Nevada-Hawai’i District and International. See your club treasurer for more details.
- Service Hours – All community service hours completed by dues-paid members between March 1, 2017, to February 28, 2018.
- Socials (SE) – Any type of event that fosters fellowship within your club or with other members from the Kiwanis Family. Examples include club dinners, recreational activities, etc.
- MD&E (MD) – Any event that help in the recruitment, retention, development, and education of new and old members. Examples include tabling, workshops, etc.
- Fundraisers – An event that raises money for either your club or for a charitable organization. If 100% of the proceeds are being donated to a charitable entity, individuals that help plan the event may receive service hours for the planning done. Members may not receive service hours for simply attending a fundraiser for a charitable entity. If the proceeds go to the club’s administrative fund, planning done can only be considered as administrative hours.
- Alumni (AL) – An event in which two members from a Circle K club and at least two alumni are present. An alumus/alumna is someone who was in Circle K and graduated from a college or university.
- Kiwanis Family (KF) – A Kiwanis Family event with at least two members present from your Circle K club and at least two members present from another non-Circle K Kiwanis Family club (ex. Key Club, Kiwanis). Examples include Kiwanis meetings, Key to College.
- Interclub (IN) – An interclub is any event hosted by another Kiwanis Family club, including Circle K. The following table will illustrate on how to achieve this tag:
Club Member Count How many attending members needed from your club How many attending members needed from another Kiwanis Family club 50 members or less 2 members 2 members 51-90 members 3 members 2 members 91+ members 4 members 2 members
The host club may mark the interclub (IN) tag if the hosted event is a community service project. Interclub events cannot be Club Hosted (HE), with the exception of Service Events.
