It’s been announced that this year’s Rotary 7030 District Conference will run from April 16th – 24th 2021. Currently in its advanced planning stages, the Conference will be executed from Saint Lucia.
Lisle Chase the 2020/2021 District Governor has the herculean task of leading Rotary through the murky waters of the COVID pandemic as St. Lucia prepares to stage the virtual conference.
Not having envisioned this in his lifetime, or for that matter for the world of Rotary, Mr. Chase acknowledges the stellar assistance from all of the clubs in his District, headed by leaders who have stayed the course and really put their shoulders to the wheel when it was most needed.
Mr. Chase says, “now is the time for concerted action especially as the District’s focus turns inward, to the celebration of the upcoming District Conference, usually an annual event that brings the region together under the banner of celebrating Rotary and Service Above Self.”
Normally what would have been considered a small boon for the local tourism industry, this year’s District Conference will be truly historic and in the words of the District Governor, “I can assure you that we will convene, under the theme “Service, Sustainability & Peace” and that in the spirit of Rotary International President Holger Knaack’s theme, we will host a virtual Conference that is engaging, informative, exciting, and offers each of us, whether incoming leaders or seasoned Rotarians, the opportunity to serve, to learn and to effect lasting change for good.”
