Dear Rotary District 5030 Rotarians,
I hope this email finds you well and ready to enjoy the Labor Day weekend.
I want to take a moment to share with you the latest update on the 2021 Rotary District 5030 District Conference, scheduled for October 1-3, 2021 in Coeur d’Alene, ID.
Historically, the annual Rotary District 5030 conference has been a magnet for Rotarians to hear from nationally-noted keynote speakers; to learn from experts in their fields; to meet new friends, re-connect with old friends; and to simply have a good time with fellow Rotarians. That is why I am deeply sorry to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Couer d’Alene event in October.
The significant negative impact of COVID on our conference plans cannot be overstated. Over the past ten days, the team that has worked tirelessly for nearly a year in planning the conference evaluated the covid-related news and the concerns expressed by members in our district and keynote speakers. We conclude that canceling the conference is best for its members and the district.
Please join me in thanking our Conference Planning Team, headed by Co-Chairs Diane Tebelius (Bellevue Rotary) and Trent Mummery (Seattle 4), for their dedicated work to create what would have been an absolutely outstanding conference!
In place of the conference, the district will start promptly to plan for events during the remainder of the Rotary year that will bring together Rotarians from around the region, covering multiple areas of focus.
For those who have registered and paid for the conference, you will receive a second email with instructions on refunding your registration fee.
Your health and safety is, and always will be, our priority! I wish you all good health!
Rotary District 5030
District Governor 2021-2022
