DISTRICT 23 CONFERENCE 1 – 3 SEPTEMBER 2023
Zontians from across District 24 (WA, SA, Tas. and Vic) gathered in Bunbury for our 2023 Conference.
What a great conference and great opportunity to meet up with Zontians old and new.
We had an opportunity to elect the next Board of Directors, vote on future proposed projects, recommend changes to by-laws etc. All helping to steer our Zonta work into the future.
We were delighted to be able to congratulate our Geelong club member Deb Schmidt on her election as the incoming District Governor. Deb will take on her new role next year after the Zonta International Convention in Brisbane in June.
Five Geelong club members received Length of Service pins and between then they had over 140 years of working for the Geelong community and Zonta International.
ZONTA INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION BRISBANE 2024
Zontians know Brisbane will host the Zonta International Convention in 2024. This is only the third time Convention has been held in Australia in Zonta’s 103 years.
The Convention Committee has been working behind the scenes since Hamburg, to secure venues and develop the Convention program. This work amped up in December with a visit from Zonta International President Ute Scholz and Executive Director Allison Summers who met with the core team, Judy Gorton (Convention Chair), Jane Adornetto (Convention Secretary) and Jane Reid (Convention Communications Coordinator) to tour the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, investigate accommodation options and venues for events.
Excitingly, on behalf of Convention Chair Judy Gorton, we can let you know that Convention will take place from 27-30 June 2024. There will be a workshop program on the 27th and of course lots of social gatherings before, during and after. There will be a range of accommodation options, with special rates for attendees, close to the Convention Centre. Convention registration will open in early 2024.
Exciting times to come!
