Rotary International Convention - Melbourne Australia

by Megan Law, Lesli Massad, Jeanean Jones
Each spring Rotary clubs, districts and zones around the world see a flurry of activity as they work to train their future leaders and celebrate as their program year draws to a close. While district assemblies, presidents-elect training seminars, and district conferences offer outstanding opportunities for fellowship and growth with Rotarians in your community, there is no better place to learn, celebrate, and see Rotary at-large than at a Rotary International Convention.

Rotating continents each year, Rotarians from around the world will gather annually in late spring/early summer for an opportunity to learn, hear from world-class speakers and Rotary leadership, and energize themselves for the year to come. It’s hard to not feel the energy when you’re surrounded by more than 12,000 Rotarians excited for the opportunity to discover new projects, meet potential grant partners, and have fun along the way!

This past May, I was honored to represent our club along with Club 29 President Lesli Massad and District 5750 Governor Jeanean Yanish Jones in Melbourne, Australia to prepare for our year ahead. Here’s what each had to say:  READ MORE
