2017 Conference Video - Why you should attend!!



Lyn Stroshin, Governor 2016-2017


Our focus is on Rotary in today’s modern society and the image we want our Clubs to portray to others in our communities. We need our clubs to be alive, vibrant and exciting with younger people engaging in Rotary service. With this in mind, we hope you can take back to your clubs, new ideas and approaches shared by our key note speakers during Conference 2017. Spend time sharing ideas and experiences with each other so that your clubs will benefit in attracting young professionals. Remember Rotary tomorrow depends on what you do for Rotary today.
