The Rotary International 2014 Convention is being held in Sydney from 1st to 4th June 2014 and the venue for this event is the Sydney Olympic Centre (the convention centre is being demolished).
Early bird registrations close on 15th December 2013, after this date, registration fees increase the closer to the event.
This is a great opportunity to witness the true internationality of Rotary and to see what Rotary is doing all over the world.
The last time the Convention was in Australia, it was held in Melbourne back in the 1990’s and 15,000 people attended from all over the world, it was held at Rod Laver Area and PP Eric Williams was able to secure for us, accommodation in Swanston Street, within walking distance of the venue.
Sydney is a city known all over the world and is expected to draw as many as the Melbourne held convention. Registrations are beginning to flood in and the demand for accommodation is increasing.
For those who haven’t been to a Rotary International Convention before, it offers an insight into the real world of Rotary and its work all over the world. It will provide the opportunity to meet and mix with people from all over the world as well as key people within the Rotary circles, including RI Directors, past RI Presidents, the General Secretary and Trustees of The Rotary Foundation.
Could I recommend this convention to those who have not attended a convention before, it is a way of learning about the international organisation to which you belong, its work and its many many humanitarian and educational programs as well as enjoying the friendship of Rotarians and spouses of the world?
It is in Sydney and it is on our back door step. You may never have a better opportunity to attend a convention without the expense and trauma of overseas travel.
For those who would like some help with registering, see me at Rotary or call me and I will assist you where I can.
You may never have a better opportunity to attend a truly international event like this again so register early and see Rotary at work.
