2021 Virtual Rotary International Convention

2021 Virtual Rotary International Convention

The 2021 Virtual Convention will be better than ever, opening more innovative opportunities to learn and to engage with the family of Rotary, near and far.

For the first time, organized in conjunction with the Rotary International Convention, a two-day virtual preconvention event will focus on Intercountry Committees: Opening Opportunities for Peace.

We have been working and preparing this event for more than a year now.

It will feature inspiring speakers such as Nobel Prize laureate Ouided Bouchamaoui, UNESCO Director General Audrey Azoulay, Rotary International President Holger Knaack, President-elect Shekhar Mehta, President-Nominee Jennifer Jones and many more.

Practical breakout sessions, and networking opportunities will help participants learn about starting or develop intercountry committees.

A joint session with the Rotaract Preconvention attendees will reimagine how Rotaract clubs can participate in ICCs to strengthen their international service work and build partnerships with Rotary and Rotaract clubs in other countries.

A Town Hall with ICC Leaders, Rotary International Staff and Director will allow you to discuss the role ICCs play in Rotary’s peace strategy and explore how the ICC structure creates opportunities for international partnerships and peacebuilding activities.

A virtual reception with Rotary International President Holger Knaack will be a celebration of culture and global connectivity. You will be asked to dress in your national clothes, prepare a virtual background representing your community, and bring a favorite beverage or snack for a virtual “cheers”!

If you haven't already done so, consider signing up for the pre-convention at convention.rotary.org .

The preconvention will not be the only event to focus on InterCountry this year at the convention.

On Tuesday 15 June 2021, at 08:00 AM (CDT) or 03:00 PM (CET), Convention participants will be able to attend a breakout session on “INTERCOUNTRY COMMITTEE’S CONTRIBUTION TO ROTARY’S PRIORITIES”.

Through presentations and exchanges this workshop will highlight how ICC’s project support of Rotary’s strategic priorities to enhance participant engagement and increase our impact and expand our Reach.

Like last year, the House of Friendship will include a booth on the inter-country committee.

The virtual House of Friendship will be the ultimate destination for Convention attendees to gather the tools and resources needed to make an impact around the world. The perfect place to connect with old friends and new, the House of Friendship will offer the opportunity for Rotarians to strengthen and grow your global network.

The House of Friendship will open from 10th to 16th June 2021.
