We have some very exciting news for you!
As you know, the 2017 Rotary International Convention will take place in Atlanta from June 10-14.  While every Rotary Convention is an exciting event, 2017 will be extra special because we will be celebrating the 100th Anniversary of The Rotary Foundation.  As a matter of fact, it was in Atlanta at the 1917 Rotary Convention, that Rotary President Arch Klumphannounced the formation of OUR foundation with the first contribution of $26.50.
In honor of Arch's birthday on June 6th, and in memory of the first donation,Rotary is offering a special registration fee of $265 - but only from May 28th to June 6th.  After June 6th, the registration fee will increase to $340.
If you are going to the Seoul Convention, you will be able to register and pay with your credit card in the House of Friendship.  For those of us who aren't going to Seoul, registration will be available online at    Click here to view flyer for more information.
