|Dear Rotary Member,
Early bird tickets are now available for all Rotaractors and Rotarians in Australia, New Zealand and across the Pacific to attend the Zone 8 Better Together Conference in Canberra from October 28-30.
The conference will be held at the National Convention Centre Canberra and the Saturday night dinner at Old Parliament House.
The conference is set to be the first in-person zone event since the COVID-19 pandemic and is shaping up to be a celebration of all the best our Rotary family has to offer. This includes a range of excellent speakers and sessions across the weekend.
Australian Army Major Alex Rubin was deployed as part of the Australian contingent to rescue the Wild Boar soccer team in Thailand and will headline the conference. Major Rubin was also involved in the Northern NSW flood recovery effort and will no doubt captivate the audience.
Another keynote speaker will be New Zealander Suran Dickson, founder of Diversity Role Models, a charity that tackles gender and sexuality related bullying by encouraging empathy and critical thinking in young people.
In addition to tickets going on sale, booth registrations have also opened for the Rotary Showcase and the conference team are also taking expressions of interest in hosting a breakout session over the weekend.
The conference organising team are aware that COVID-19 is still in the community, but are confident everything is being done to ensure a fantastic time in Canberra for everyone.
Governor Elect and Governor Nominee training will take place immediately ahead of the conference from 25-27 October also at the National Convention Centre Canberra.
To purchase tickets, register for a Showcase booth, complete a breakout session expression of interest form or find out more about Canberra head to https://conference.
