“Discover and Reconnect”

Message from Conference Chair PP Peter Chu

Dear Club Presidents and Secretaries,

It is indeed my pleasure on behalf of the Organising Committee to welcome you to one of the highlights of this Rotary year – the 54th District Conference. Our dedicated and committed organising team has been meeting for several months to plan and to bring you a District Conference with a difference.  The theme of the 54th District Conference is “Discover and Reconnect”

In line with our District’s commitment to ‘Engage Rotary, Change Lives’ we will bring Rotarians and family members together over two days to discover the potential in ourselves and our clubs, and to reconnect with ‘Rotary’ with fellow Rotarians, alumni, the extended Rotary family and the communities we serve. To this end we have planned an exciting business and entertainment program and lined up some of the most eminent speakers for inspiration.

As we all know – All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! So apart from the formal ‘business’ part of the conference program, there will be a celebration dinner and ball – The Rotary 109th Birthday Ball to celebrate 109 years of service as the world’s first volunteer service organisation.

In addition, on the 2nd day of the conference there will be opportunities to engage and service the local community with a Classic car Parade, and Rotary come out events.

The District Conference will be held early in the second half of the Rotary year on 22nd and 23rd February 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Tseung Kwan O, East Kowloon. This brand new venue is conveniently located on top of the Tseung Kwan O MTR station next to Popcorn Mall with easy access by car or public transport. We believe this District Conference will be well attended and urge you to register early to ‘Discover and Reconnect’ and be revitalised.

Please find attached a Conference Registration Form for your club’s usage and note that the completed form together with the summary of attendees should be submitted to RIC on or before 31st October 2013 to be eligible for an ‘Early Bird’ discount, or by the registration deadline on 31st December 2013

Yours sincerely in Rotary,

Peter Chu

Chairman
