Why should you attend the conference?

There’s a large world of Rotary beyond the club, and this is the perfect way to learn about some of it and meet some fascinating people. This year, attendance will be easy for many, since it will be at The Le Meridian in Uptown Charlotte. Even better, it will be a JOINT District Conference, with District 7690 that includes Winston-Salem, Greensboro and much more. We expect well over 500 Rotary, Rotaract, Interact members and guests to attend.

What will you do at the conference?

There will be lots of activities – multiple service projects, great speakers, Friday International Theme Night, Saturday Kentucky Derby Night, breakouts, a magic show, a talent show, time with members of the Rotary family, built-in free time, excursions, and more. Festivities begin Friday afternoon and conclude Sunday morning. You don’t want to miss it. There are options to register for Friday banquet, Saturday banquet or full conference.

What is club attendance competition?

The top 3 District 7680 clubs by most members Registering for the Full Conference, and by the highest % of members doing so, will win prize money from the District: The #1 club in each category will receive $25 per Full Conference Registration (FCR), the #2 club $10 per FCR, and the #3 club $5 per FCR. Winners will be announced at the Conference. Club leaders should decide how to encourage the most attendance.
