District 6460/6490 Conference
September 8-9, 2017

Our District Conference will showcase your hard work, enlighten others of the societal progress your efforts have created, and recognize your club successes. It is a chance for you to meet and mingle with Rotarians from across the District, make new friends; and, bring the family together for fun and relaxation. There will be something for everyone (including a few surprises).

This year, Districts 6460 and 6490, neighbors on the map, will be conducting our first ever Joint District Conference in conjunction with the Zone 30-31’s Zone Institute.

What does that mean to you? 

By working with the Zone, our two districts will be able to enjoy some exceptional speakers such as Ian H.S. Riseley, Rotary International President for 2017-18; Chantal Vallee, University of Windsor championship basketball coach; Lee Cockerell, former executive vice-president of operations for Walt Disney World Resort;  Jackie Joyner-Kersee, Olympian track and field star who helped establish Athletes for Hope; and Ron Burton, Rotary International President in 2013-14.

The Joint District Conference will be on Friday, September 8, and Saturday, September 9, at the Wyndham Springfield City Centre in Springfield, IL.  This will truly be an event that you don’t want to miss; exceptional inspirational speakers and Rotary fellowship3 (that’s fellowship to the 3rd power – Zone, District 6460 and District 6490)!.  What a great chance to get excited about this Rotary year while meeting new people from your district, your neighboring district and the Zone!
