2020 Rotary Virtual Convention

Now More Than Ever, Rotary Connects the World: The 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention will join you with Rotary participants around the world during a time of unprecedented challenges.

Together, we’ll still experience the spirit of Rotary, be inspired by innovation, celebrate our resilience, and explore how clubs are addressing COVID-19. Experience Rotary in action during our Flag Ceremony, witness the power of connection during our general sessions, learn new ways to engage with Rotary during our breakout sessions, find inspiration from our global speakers, and much more.

We have never needed Rotary — and we have never needed each other — more than we do now. We hope to see you online, because Now More Than Ever, Rotary Connects the World.

Evening of Opportunity

Rotary Opens Opportunities. As Rotarians, we’ve experienced great opportunity and will live the new Rotary International theme as we move forward with our service. Rotarians across the state of Utah are invited to join us online on Friday evening, June 26 (7:00-8:30pm) as we look to the future, installing incoming District Governor Linda Sappington.

It will be a fun and impactful 90 minutes hosted by legendary Rotarian Devin Thorpe. As emcee, Devin will mix it up with some fun and surprises. The program will feature an insightful recap from this past year’s District Governor John Hanrahan. We will also welcome an important voice from the Rotary International Board, Johrita Solari, and be making the 2019 – 20 Rotary Club of the Year and Rotoract Club of the Year Awards. And don’t be surprised if there are a few special guests!

It’s an evening of fun and entertainment, along with a few surprises, with your Rotary friends from all across our great state.
