What does District Conference have for you ?

● Be inspired ? – our district always has fantastic speakers at conference, ones that will inspire Rotarians to continue what we do in Rotary in order to improve the lives of others.

● Be motivated ? – meeting and talking to Rotarians from around the district is always amazing, just hearing how much we do should easily motivate you to do more.

● Be enthused ? – there’s one quality that all Rotarians need, enthusiasm, and believe us when you attend a conference you should certainly leave enthused to support Rotary, your club and your community.

● HAVE FUN ?? – there’s no point in doing something if it’s not fun, and conferences are always, most definitely, fun!   Not only do you get to spend more time with your fellow club members, you get to enjoy a beautiful part of the world and take in new experiences.
