HOUSTON has been selected as the 2022 Rotary International convention city! This was a lengthy process that involved many people throughout our District, particularly PDG Rhonda Kennedy and her committee, and this selection could not have happened without their dedication to presenting Houston and District 5890 as the only choice for Rotary International. Over the next six years we will be planning a convention that shows Rotarians from around the world exactly why Houston was not only the right choice but the only choice for the best International Convention possible.
