The California-Nevada-Hawaii (CNH) District is home to the CNH Bees, and to the first ever internationally formed Key Club! The first five clubs officially chartered by Key Club International were at Sacramento, Monterey, Oakland Technical, Hemet, and Stockton (now Edison) High Schools, of which all are located in our District!
The California-Nevada District converted to the California-Nevada-Hawaii (Cali-Nev-Ha, CNH) District when McKinley High School Key Club was established in Hawaii in 1952. The first edition of the Cali-Nev-Ha Key appeared on May 1, 1954.
Today, there are 77 divisions, grouped into 18 different regions, through out the three states that make up our district. With over 730 clubs and 33,000 members, we are the largest of the 34 International Districts!
