We have been asked to send at least one Rotarian per 10 club members AND sponsor one young professional per 10 members who is a potential member. Friday/Saturday: $180. For those under 40: $160. It’s up to each club but consider $100 sponsorships for potential members under 40 years of age. Thursday night Rotary Foundation Dinner is $50, and features Rick Foster, North American Manager for the LDS Humanitarian Foundation.
All will receive a digital certificate of attendance at this professional development Conference featuring workshops in conflict resolution, managing generational diversity, discovering & addressing implicit bias, building teams of trust, collaboration & results – and much more including all the Rotary programming you love!
