Rotary District 6310 Conference
This event has been cancelled. Please contact Alysha with any questions - 989.774.1540
Each year, districts are asked to hold a conference for club members so they can learn about what's happening in Rotary and meet other Rotarians in the area. This conference is meant to engage members at all levels, from most-senior leaders to new members. We will celebrate accomplishments of members, clubs and the district. Most importantly, we wish to inspire you to become more involved, give you a vision of Rotary beyond your club and to provide a memorable fellowship experience.
We recognize some of you may travel with a partner or your family. Although everyone is welcome, it possible your loved ones would appreciate ideas of things to do in Mt. Pleasant outside of the conference. Please check out “Area Information” below for a list of events happening this weekend.
The Rotary Club of Mt. Pleasant is excited to host the conference for District 6310 on Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2, 2020.
