4 Things to Know About The Rotary International Convention

Atlanta

This week, we’re packing our bags and preparing to travel to Atlanta, Georgia to attend the Rotary International Convention, one of the biggest events of its kind. We can’t wait to meet thousands of Rotary members from more than 130 countries and share with them our passion for serving those who serve the world. Here are four things you need to know about this exciting event:

 

  1. The convention brings together an incredible network. This year, more than twenty thousand people  from across the world registered to attend the convention. A diverse group of passionate Rotarians will gather together to learn, connect and share the good work of their Rotary clubs with fellow members.

  2. Convention attendees will hear from some powerful speakers on a range of topics. Bill Gates, Ashton Kutcher, James Quincey, Brittany Arthur, Governor Nathan Deal and Jack Nicklaus are just a few of the keynote speakers for this year’s convention.

  3. There will be a number of  breakout sessions on issues that matter to Rotarians. Attendees will hear about topics including Zika, refugees, youth involvement in Rotary, healthy living, volunteering and sustainability.  

  4. It's a giant birthday party. This year marks the centennial of the Rotary Foundation, and we’re excited to celebrate! For 100 years, Rotary Foundation members have been changing lives and communities in big ways. Pass the cake.
