Last week I had the honour of attending several days of training, in preparation for my year as District Governor, 9810. This was along with all my colleagues from the other 25 Districts that cover Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Our Zone also includes East Timor and PNG.
At the conclusion of our training we attended the Zone 8 Conference which took place over the weekend.
The events took place in Canberra.
The whole experience was just wonderful. Lots of work and lots of socialising. And making many new friends.
The highlight was the chance of meeting and engaging with International President Elect, Gordon McInally (Scotland).
There were quite a few other visitors from Rotary USA including Larry Lunsford, Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Rotary Foundation.
