2015 District Conference: Register Now!

The spotlight is turned on and warming up in preparation for your arrival at the 2015 District Conference in Beaumont, TX.  We have much in store and exciting plans in place.  Register now to receive a discounted rate on one of many registration options available for you and your spouse/guest.  

General schedule:
Friday, May 1 - Pre-Conference activities and tours will start at 1:00 p.m. Sign up for the "Shoot Down Polio!" Clay Shoot with proceeds to benefit the End Polio effort, or tours of local museums and attractions.  We flip the switch for the official conference opening at the Beaumont Rotary Centennial Playground; then at dinner in the adjacent Beaumont Event Centre the spotlight will shine on district clubs for the Governor's Spotlight Awards.  

Saturday, May 2 - The day will be full of presentations and collaborations about the good work being done across the District.  There will be time to exchange ideas and share new plans.  In the evening, the spotlight will focus on the District leadership at the traditional Governor's Dinner.  We have some "top brass" showing up for the "top brass!"  (Click on the attachment below for a sneak preview.)  You don't want to miss this!

Sunday, May 3 - The spotlight will turn this morning to light up the great work being done by Rotarians collectively through the Rotary Foundation. You will be moved, motivated, and inspired.  Plan to be here until around 11:00 a.m. when the lights will go dim on the 2015 Conference, but participants take the glow back to their respective clubs to continue to "Light Up Rotary!" across District 5910.

Important News to all Club Presidents/Club Secretaries and Attendance Managers! ClubRunner enabled automatic database integration with Rotary International on November 1, 2010. This means that all member data updates (which your club chooses to share) will be automatically updated on Member Access at RI's Headquarter databases within 2 hours, without the need to send any email notifications or enter the data via rotary.org. This is a powerful new tool for Rotarians to streamline reporting to Rotary International. Each club must "Opt-In" in order to take advantage of this service.
Instructions for Opting In are available on this site on the admin page, once you sign in. 
 

 
 
     In the 1920's, the Hull-Daisetta area was a booming oil field. Once the Rotary Club was established there, they realized there was not only a shortage of residents, but they did not have a place to meet.  As enterprising Rotarians, they built a small structure in which to hold their meetings. It was a six-sided building, with a peaked roof, a brick fireplace, and a lean-to on the outside that acted as the kitchen. The location served them well for a number of years, but as the oil business dried up, so did the Rotary Club there.

Tom Plumb of The Port Isabel, Texas Rotary Club spent over 4 years
pursuing the creation of a Texas Rotary International license plate. 
They are now a reality. The specialty license plate fee is collected in addition to
the regular registration fee and any other applicable fees. 
From the $30 specialty plate fee, $22 goes to the Texas Department of State
Health Services to help fund Tuberculosis (TB) prevention and for improving
the delivery of TB prevention and control services.
This plate is available for Passenger,Truck, Motorcycle, Trailer/Travel Trailer, and
Private Bus.The plate can be purchased on-line at the TxDMV website.
