Once again District 6330 will be combining the District Learning Assembly and President Elect Training.
Here’s your opportunity to learn what’s new in Rotary, brush up on your skills and knowledge. It’s a must attend event for new and older Rotarians/Rotaractors alike. Meet new and old friends, share ideas and best practices and go back to your clubs inspired to continue the good work of Rotary in your community and around the globe. The future of Rotary is in your hands as we prepare to enter a new Rotary year.
This year, the District Learning Assembly will take place on April 13, 2019 at the Holiday Inn, Sarnia, Ontario and following the success of last years remote satellite location we are delighted to be able to offer this opportunity again at the Best Western, Owen Sound in order for more Rotarians to participate.
