Hello Again! Everyone settled into the routine again by now I suppose and I wanted to let everyone know that even though the early registration period for Rotary International Convention has passed, YOU CAN STILL REGISTER and WITH A DISCOUNT.  They like to call that " PRE-Registration "!! So, if you register today you can still get in at a lower price of 550.00~ Registration is super simple at the Rotary International Website: https://www.riconvention.org/en/honolulu/register

 

I will be covering what some of the possible breakout sessions will be in my upcoming email so look for that in your inbox! There are so many great ones, that there are almost too many to list! The topics will touch your heart and inspire you to want to get involved with other amazing Rotarian's doing amazing things in our world today! I hope you will look over them and see what speaks to you, there will definitely be something!!
