Rotary Supports Basic Education & Literacy
Current District News . . .
Join us for a day of strategizing and developing actionable plans on Saturday, October 15th at the Ralph A. McMullen Center on Higgins Lake in Roscommon, MI.
The District’s job is to help clubs grow, and our strategic plan ensures we focus on what matters most to clubs. We will start by revisiting our Strategic Plan to ensure it's still on track, making adjustments as needed to ensure we continue to be an indispensable resource for our clubs.
For the remainder of the day our focus will shift to Public Image which we believe is a critical driving force to enable member attraction, engagement and successful fundraising. We will feature success stories from several D6290 clubs, and will connect you to resources that will help you get the most from your investment of time and dollars.
Join us the evening prior for dinner and fellowship, or arrive Saturday morning for breakfast and in time for 9am start of program. We will adjourn at 3:30pm. Cost is $100 if arriving on Friday (includes all meals and overnight private accommodation) or $25 for Saturday only (includes breakfast and lunch).
Clubs’ input into this discussion will add considerably to the quality of the discussion outcome. We hope YOUR club will send representative(s) to the meeting and add to the quality of the discussion. Our target audience includes Club Presidents, President Elects, Public Image Chairs, Social Media and Website administrators.
Over 60 people from District 6290 are planning to attend the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, and the list keeps growing!
Rotarians are signing up at a record-setting pace and, as a special celebration of Rotary Foundation's Centennial, this promises to be the best and biggest party in a hundred years! If you are the least bit interested, it's best to register now. There are reasonable cancellation policies if your plans should change. Some of the special events are already selling out.
Our District is working to secure a block of rooms. We've run into a few glitches, so to be on the safe side it's wise to make a reservation for hotel accommodations which you can choose to release at future date. For more cost-effective options we suggest you consider airport properties (book directly vs. via convention site). If booking an airport hotel, we recommend one that has airport shuttle service, complimentary breakfast and free cancellation policy. Hotels.com is excellent site for easy booking. Atlanta has a great rail public transit system and you can use that for transportation to/from the convention center. If you are interested in being notified about a District block of rooms once they become available, please contact Wendell Christoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 616-581-1104.
