The focus this month, of course, will be the last D9700 District Conference in Temora. For those who haven't registered yet here is the link to the registration page. And I am told by those in the know (ie the Temora Club) that there is still accommodation available for those who are quick. If you haven't had a look at the program go to the Conference website here and you can download the speaker bios and the program for the weekend.
We have been fortunate to have support from sponsors and the ones involved so far are shown in the picture.

For those who might have missed it the Saturday night Conference Dinner has as its theme the South Pacific and if you want to wow your fellow Rotarians and guests with your flair for getting into the vibe you might consider the following suggestions for dressing up: casual beach, surf and resort wear, celebrating islands of the ocean, sarongs, muu muus, historic ocean explorers, fish & fishing, shells, mermaids, yacht racing, SCUBA divers and anything coastal as we join the new Rotary District. Remember there will be prizes awarded for categories such as best costume; the table group that best reflect the theme of the night; lucky door prize.
As we move to forming our new District 9705 the first official activity for D9705 was held in February, the President Elect Training. I attended both sessions at Wagga and Goulburn and was impressed with the engagement of the PEs with the process and the positive comments about the experience and the learning happening. It bodes well for next year. Also, the Special General Meeting to approve the change of name from D9700 to D9705 was passed and this will commence the administrative actions to start the new district on 1 July. The next D9705 event will be the District Assembly on May  9th in Young.
