HOUSE OF FRIENDSHIP

WHY IS THE DISTRICT CONFERENCE FOR YOU?

Celebrate

If we’re not having fun in Rotary, we’re doing something wrong. Let’s kick up a little dust and have some fun sharing what we’ve done this year.

Networking Opportunities

With three districts represented, we’ll be able to find new partners for projects and hang out with some awesome folks that all enjoy Rotary.

Find New Ways of Thinking and Problem-Solving

More ideas get exchanged in a conference hospitality room than beer drank. Maybe.

You Are A Rotarian

No matter how long you’ve been in Rotary, you are welcome to attend this party, ‘um we mean conference. This is where you will find new friends and expand your Rotary world.

Location and Venue

Enjoy beautiful Columbus and the Polaris Area

Spend a few days discovering Polaris Fashion Place and the surrounding area. In addition to the hundreds of stores, you will find many great activities such as Top Golf and Star Lanes Bowling. The area is full of great hotels, restaurants and family activities.

People of Action

Rotary is where neighbors, friends, and problem-solvers share ideas, join leaders, and take action to create lasting change

WE CONNECT PEOPLE

Rotary unites more than a million people

Through Rotary clubs, people from all continents and cultures come together to exchange ideas, and form friendships and professional connections while making a difference in their backyards and around the world.

WE TRANSFORM COMMUNITIES

We take action locally and globally

Each day, our members pour their passion, integrity, and intelligence into completing projects that have a lasting impact. We persevere until we deliver real, lasting solutions.

WE SOLVE PROBLEMS

No challenge is too big for us

For more than 110 years, we’ve bridged cultures and connected continents to champion peace, fight illiteracy and poverty, promote clean water and sanitation, and fight disease.

Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change —
across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Multi-District Conference
2 Districts + 2 Zones + 106 Clubs + Over 5,500 Rotarians = 1 Awesome Conference
