CONFERENCE SYNOPSIS

This conference provides Rotarians with the opportunity to join together in fellowship to share information about successful projects and to learn from each other. It is by sharing information that our communities benefit from our knowledge, innovation, creativity, resourcefulness, and enthusiasm. Through Rotary we make the world a better place

The Global Nurses & Midwives Rotary Club invite you to join us as we explore this fabulous part of the world.

Optional Tours will be available at a number of ports where we will discover the sites but also join with fellow Rotarians from a local Club to gain an understanding of what they are doing and share our own experiences. It will be fabulous!

CONFERENCE PROGRAM

The conference content will consist of a variety of 20-minute presentations that will explore projects that have been or are being delivered by our Rotary colleagues from a variety of geographical locations.

We encourage Rotary Club members to share their knowledge so that others may learn – not only about the project being discussed but also about the logistics of project delivery and lessons learned along the way.
