Registration for the 2016 Rotary District 5650 Conference this August is now open! Join Rotarians from throughout our District to celebrate the accomplishments of Rotary in our region and the world during the past year. 
Rotary District 5650 Conference
You really need to check out these amazing speakers who will be present at this year’s Rotary District Conference – August 5-6 at Innovation Campus! Razia Jan, President/Founder of the Zabuli Education Center: Razia has worked tirelessly for many years to forge connections between Afghans and Americans. Razia had the boldness and vision to open a school that provides free education for hundreds of girls in rural Afghanistan in 2008 - a year when the Taliban killed nearly 150 teachers, students and school employees - and she’s coming to OUR conference!
And opening this year was the Razia Jan Institute, the first free, private women’s community college in rural Afghanistan. Some of the women and their classmates have been featured in a documentary, “What Tomorrow Brings,” which recently premiered. Check out the film trailer here:
The Director of this documentary, Beth Murphy, will also be at OUR conference! Another amazing addition.
And, if this wasn’t enough, our very own District Governor, Rod Bates, has arranged for the President and Chief Executive Officer of PBS, Paula Kerger, to also attend. Are you a Downton Abbey fan? Well, come and tell her how much you like it yourself! Because its creation is one of her many accomplishments.
Cost is $125. Register online TODAY at  For questions, contact:
