DISTRICT ASSEMBLY is really a great training workshop for all Rotarians
The District is adapting and adjusting in many ways, and embracing technology that will make it easier to communicate with the clubs and especially the various committees is just one of the changes.
New tools are being introduce along with new marketing plans for membership.
The District Assembly is June 22, 2019 at Shoreline Community College.
It starts at 8:15 AM and will last until 12:45 PM
There will be 18 various breakouts to select from including:  Public Image, Social Media, Marketing, Membership, Business Networking, Visioning, Peace, Training
Note from Jan about this:  I have attended this annual workshop in the past, and it has been really good….time very well spent.
