2019 District Conference
May 3-4, 2019
McKimmon Conference and Training Center
NC State University
1101 Gorman Street, Raleigh, NC 27606
This year’s district conference promises to be fun and inspirational! The conference kicks off with lunch followed by our keynote speaker, Tru Pettigrew. Tru will set the stage for an inspiring two days of presentations. You will hear about what Rotary is doing in our local communities and in our world community. We’ll have panel discussions and an opportunity for audience participation.
Instead of a banquet on Friday night, we’ll offer dine-around opportunities for conference attendees and their spouses/partners. Keep an eye out for an email on this. We’re going to launch Sign-up Genius soon for you to sign up for a restaurant in Raleigh, Durham, Cary or Chapel Hill.
And don't forget the service project we'll be completing at the conference on Saturday afternoon right after lunch. We'll be sorting all of those travel size items you've been collecting all year before we present them to the USO at RDU. And think about having your children join us to help sort the items.
If you’ve never attended a district conference before, this is your opportunity to attend one in Raleigh.
No need for the expense of a hotel room and it's an easy drive to the McKimmon Center from anywhere in District 7710.
Tru is a celebrated author, an engaging speaker, a committed community leader, and an award-winning marketing executive with close to 20 years of experience at the nation’s top advertising & marketing agencies.
Show Off Your Creativity
Do you have some artistic talent? What about someone in your family? Or are you or one of your family members good with a camera? If so, the Rotarians in Action Art Contest is for you!
Rotarians in District 7710 make a big difference in their local and world communities every day and this art contest is a celebration of those contributions. There are six age categories and separate categories for artwork and photography.
The deadline to submit your artwork or photography is February 28. Once we have all the artwork and photos loaded into our voting system, every Rotarian will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites. Winners will be announced at the 2019 District Conference.
District Service Project
We are collecting travel-size toiletries that will be donated to USO of RDU.
For the next several months, save any of the items listed on the downloadable sheet and at the District Conference, we will sort and package these items for delivery to the USO.
Bring Your Appetite
Following the reception on Friday night, you'll have the opportunity to enjoy dining with old friends and new acquaintances at one of the many well known restaurants, bistros and bars in Raleigh, Durham and Cary. The area has become a foodie's delight and the choices will be many and varied, so look for more info soon and sign up early.
