A record number of attendees are coming to District Conference / Assembly

Rotary Happens HereBeginning this Friday  D7980 Conference/Assembly attendees will enjoy the company and fellowship of over 425 Rotarians, family members, and young adults from Interact, Rotaract and Youth Exchange in a truly engaging and unique Rotary experience.

This extraordinary experience is made possible by the exceptional partnership between the current district leaders and next year’s leaders, especially DGE Mukund Nori. This is the very first time that Rotary District 7980 has combined the Conference and the Assembly into a single event and from all indications the approach is being very well received.

We kick off our event on Friday morning at Ocean Beach in New London with a Community Service beach project and then move to the main venue at the Mystic Marriott in Groton for a program hosted by the young adults of Youth Service (New Generations). All will enjoy a fun-filled evening on Friday featuring entertainment provided by BritishMania, the internationally acclaimed Beatles tribute band.

Conference program COVER FINALSaturday is all about our D7980 Rotary Clubs with high-energy programs and informative sessions that are designed to inspire all attendees. Lunch on Saturday will be attended by both Conference and Assembly participants who will be treated to the 4-Way Test Speech Contest before heading into the District Assembly. Saturday is also the day that we recognize the many outstanding Rotarians and Rotary Clubs for the good works that they do in their communities and around the world.

The event concludes on Sunday at noon after some very informative programs on The Rotary Foundation, the State of the District and we after conduct an election for the representative of the next Council On Legislation.

I am especially pleased that we were able to bring the District Conference back to Connecticut for the first time in almost 25 years and give so many of our Rotarians the opportunity to attend.

On Tuesday or Wednesday registered attendees will receive an email from either Trish Pearson or Mukund Nori giving them a run down of what to expect during the event.

  1. Rick, What a spectacular Program Book! You and Dale deserve kudos for your hard work and vision. I am looking forward to the coming weekend’s festivities! Ed Davies

  2. Rick:

    thanks for sending this email, which I assume was sent to all registrants.  Obviously, I am pleased with the number of registrants for both the Conference and the Assembly.  Do you have a breakdown in the numbers between the two?

    In the past, when I have known who the President’s Rep was to be I would send him/her a personal note,  as Past Vice President, of “welcome” to avoid a sense of intimidation which sometimes happens.  If you have his email address, and if you don’t think I am stepping on your toes, I would like to send him a note.

    I have just returned from the District 7255 conference where I was the keynote speaker and I was very pleased with that event, as well.

    Best wishes.

    Abe Gordon
