Following my presentations at the last few Joint Presidents Meetings, I am pleased to share with you more details about the 53rd District Conference to be held at the Mission Hills Convention Centre, Dongguan, China on Saturday 20 April and Sunday 21 April 2013.First of all, three distinguish speakers, Dr Allan Zeman, Chairman of Ocean Park, Professor Edward Chen Kwan Yiu, former President of Lingnan University and Dr Ken Chu, Chairman and CEO of Mission Hills Group have accepted our invitation to share with us their words of wisdom and invaluable experience at the Conference. More details on the list of Guest Speakers will follow.

Meanwhile, attached for your ease of reference is an update on various arrangements including registration fees, hotel accommodation, transportation and travel documents. Please share with your members and encourage them to submit the registration as early as possible. In particular, high demand for hotel rooms is expected so early booking is strongly advised. A special booking procedure has also been set up to ensure that the very generous package offered by the Mission Hills can be enjoyed by Rotarians attending the Conference.

Pre-conference programs including a golf tournament, mahjong competition, sight-seeing tour and a scrumptious BBQ dinner have been arranged on Friday 19 April 2013 as a prelude to a formal and yet fun-filled conference. There will also be some interesting programs for spouses and children to make sure they can enjoy a wonderful weekend. So please don’t miss this opportunity to join this “Whole-In-One” Conference.

Also attached are the registration form, list of participants form and an order form for advertisement in the Conference Program Book. All these three forms are included in the same excel file so that it will be easier for each Club to centralise the registrations. Finally, may I take this opportunity to seek your generous support by placing an advertisement in the program book. Any assistance you may offer to make this Conference a great success will be greatly appreciated.

I will write to you again soon with more updates about the Conference. Last but not least, I have the pleasure in sending you a promotional video about the Conference. Please share this with your fellow members and your friends on facebook as well!

Yours in Rotary

K L Cheng

Chairman, Organising Committee
