The 2017 Rotary International convention will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center, June 10-14, 2017 and is expected to draw thousands of visitors from more than 130 countries, and fill 41,000 hotel rooms. The Rotary Foundation started in Atlanta in 1917 and the annual conference will celebrate the Foundation’s 100th anniversary. The worldwide organization serves as an advocate to governments and provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards and helps build goodwill and peace around the world. The convention is often described as a “mini-United Nations” because of its internationality.
In addition, general sessions, breakout sessions and House of Friendship exhibits offer countless ways to help you get the most from your Rotary membership and make your club stronger.
