D9980 Conference 

Special Invitation from District 9980 Governor Dylan Murray

Dylan Murray, District Governor D9980 —

Invitation from District 9980 Governor Dylan Murray to attend their conference 19th to the 21st of March 2021.

Kia ora, Each year, Districts are asked by Rotary International to hold a conference for club members so they can learn about what's happening in Rotary and their District and meet other Rotarians in the area.

The Rotary District 9980 “Power of Moments” Conference to be held in Waimate over 19-21 March 2021 includes:

  • An address from Rotary International President Holger Knaack to inspire and motivate participants.
  • Local and international speakers who will give presentations on leadership; personal development; governance; peacekeeping; inclusiveness; diversity; teamwork; humanitarian efforts; Rotary Oceania centenary initiatives and recent Club Global Grant and District Grant projects.
  • District Speech Competition Final
  • District Awards

There will also be an opportunity for participants to contribute a small amount of volunteer time to the newly established Point Bush Eco-Sanctuary in Waimate.

Most importantly the Conference gives participants time to network, reconnect with friends, and find inspiration for continuing Rotary service, project partnerships and community leadership.

We have raised significant sponsorship for the Conference hence the low registration fee of $150. This is excellent value considering the calibre of speakers, entertainers, and catering being provided throughout the weekend.

The Saturday night social event theme is “Green”. Nice and easy….or as complex as you want it to be!

Everything you need to know can be found on the conference website (https://www.rotary9980conference.org)

We formally invite any member of District 9970 to attend (we already have some coming) and Register Now via the website.

Russell Wallace, our accommodation liaison (Russ.wallace1@gmail.com) can help you sort accommodation if required.

Make some Rotary Moments of your own and connect with your future District 9999 fellows!

Nga mihi nui,
Dylan Murray
District Governor (D9980)
