We welcome Marty to our club and look forward to him applying his many skills to our Rotary work. Marty joins the Youth Committee.

Rotary Institute/District 9940 Conference
On 5-7 December 2014 Wellington will host the Rotary Institute/District 9940 Conference. There will be no Conference for District 9940 in 2015. This is it! The 2015 Conference has actually been brought forward to December 2014 to merge with the South Pacific Institute and it is all happening here in Wellington. This is a wonderful opportunity to be involved with Rotarians from all over the world.
