HOUSE OF FRIENDSHIP

WHY IS THE DISTRICT CONFERENCE FOR YOU?

Celebrate

If we’re not having fun in Rotary, we’re doing something wrong. Let’s kick up a little dust and have some fun sharing what we’ve done this year.

Networking Opportunities

With two districts represented, we’ll be able to find new partners for projects and hang out with some awesome folks that all enjoy Rotary.

Find New Ways of Thinking and Problem-Solving

More ideas get exchanged in a conference hospitality room than beer drank. Maybe.

You Are A Rotarian

No matter how long you’ve been in Rotary, you are welcome to attend this party, ‘um we mean conference. This is where you will find new friends and expand your Rotary world.
