District Virtual Training Assembly

Rotary Theme 2020-21

Via Zoom Teleconference

Saturday, June 13, 2020     9:00 – 11:00 am


Since we can not meet in person for the Annual District Training Assembly we will be conducting a virtual assembly with ‘rooms’ set aside for a variety of topics. We encourage all club leadership, club committee chairs and Rotarians interested in knowing more about Rotary to participate. So please register now (prior to June 8) for this free opportunity. Though I regret we can not enjoy the in person fellowship that occurs during Assembly, we will have discussion time in our sessions so you can get to know others in the District. This will undoubtedly be the most convenient Assembly we have ever been able to hold.
