Hello everyone
First, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all that you have done or are doing for our organization. Just as our collective humanitarian efforts accomplish more than any of us could individually,
it is the collective effort of all of you that allows our organization to operate year in and year out. We appreciate you.

Some of you receiving this are long time friends and acquaintances in Rotary Some are relatively new. Some of you we have not yet had the privilege of working with. Regardless, we need each of you to consider the following.
September 20-22, 2018, we will be holding the first ever Zone 24/32 Conference. Oh wait you say, we've had Rotary Institutes for years. Right you are. So what's the difference? This event is open to ALL Rotarians. Past Officers, incoming officers, current officers, AG's, district Rotarians, club Rotarians. Everyone!

Why you might ask? It is our belief and experience that non governor types get incredibly motivated, energized, and engaged when they can interact and engage with you who are more experienced and have a different knowledge base (possibly higher Rotary IQ) and skill set. We've seen it over and over. So now we're going to get intentional about it. We're eliminating the silos and allowing for and encouraging growth
through collaboration.

That will only be successful if YOU are there. It doesn't matter how long ago you were Governor. We want you back. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you've been to a Zone event, we want to celebrate you. We stand on your shoulders. All of us do. Welcome back. Welcome home.

I am simply the Convener. There is an extraordinary team of people planning an outrageously exciting event. This is YOUR event.

So, go to:
and see what the program looks like. Register and join us in Montreal.

Encourage others from your Governor's Council, District, and Clubs to join you.
The early bird discount ends June 1st so act NOW.

We look forward to welcoming you to Montreal....and celebrating you.

Jeffry Cadorette
Incoming Rotary International Director
