2015-16 Presidential Conferences:

A joint program of RI and TRF to highlight Rotary’s areas of focus


Dear Friends:

Rotary’s areas of focus encompass some of the world’s most critical and widespread humanitarian needs. Our members and partners around the world have rolled up their sleeves to promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water and sanitation, save mothers and children, support basic education and literacy, and grow local economies. We are proud to say that Rotary has become a global leader in advancing these vital goals.

It is our privilege to convene a series of presidential conferences in 2015-16 highlighting our areas of focus. Between January and March 2016, five conferences will be held around the world, each focusing on one of these areas:

15-16 January | Ontario, California, USA | Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution

19-20 February | Cannes, France | Disease Prevention & Treatment

27 February | Cape Town, South Africa | Economic Development

12-13 March | Kolkata, India | Literacy and Water, Sanitation, Hygiene (WASH) in Schools

18-19 March | Pasay City, Manila, Philippines | WASH in Schools

All of the conferences are being led by local Rotary districts and are open to Rotary members and non-members. The conferences will feature engaging speakers, informative plenary sessions, and hands-on workshops. Attendees will have the opportunity to network with fellow leaders and take away new ideas and strategies to put into action. Visit the conference websites to learn more about each of the programs and register to attend.

If you are working to improve your community through these areas, or would like to learn how to do so, you will not want to miss this unique opportunity to join fellow leaders, exchange ideas, and take action. We hope to see you there!
