The Rotacon Command Crew just returned from a productive planning weekend in Sandestin. Details for a few key elements that are new for district conference were tweaked and confirmed as follows:

Friendship Lounge: A new element for district conference, the Friendship Lounge, will be a central place where all conference attendees can visit for refreshments or snacks and to socialize. Clubs that do not typically host a hospitality suite but would like to sponsor and staff a shift in the Friendship Lounge may do so for only $250. All room, food and beverage costs are included in the sponsorship. All you have to do is sign up and take a shift. Visit the sponsorship tab on the district registration page at http://bit.ly/RotaconRegistration for details and to sign up.

Scrapbooks and House of Friendship displays: Clubs are not being asked to provide scrapbooks or House of Friendship displays for Rotacon 2018. Instead, clubs are asked to provide a short (about 3 minutes max) video highlighting their club’s activities for the year. Video will be played on a district-provided display in the Magnolia Foyer of the Baytowne Conference Center and at other points during the conference.

Friday Breakout Sessions: An engaging series of breakout sessions are being organized for Friday afternoon from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Examples include:

  • Building Partners at Home and Abroad for International Work
  • Rotary Community Corps: Community Solutions for Community Challenges
  • Rotary Leadership Above the Club Level
  • Leveraging Club Flexibility and Working ”Outside the Boundaries"
  • And many more

Stay tuned for more exciting updates and announcements! #rotacon2018 #18rotary6900
