GREAT NEWS:

We want you to know that, in response to questions and concerns raised by members world-wide, the Rotary International Board of Directors has confirmed that the 2022 Rotary International Convention will still be an in-person event in Houston, Texas, USA, 4-8 June.

In addition, the Board has determined that all participants, including Rotary International preconvention participants, must either be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (as defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) OR provide a negative result from a COVID-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before their arrival at the convention.

To encourage attendance, considering this news, there is a special registration rate of US $495 through 28 February, which is retroactive to 16 December. Any registrations made at the US$575 rate since 16 December will automatically be refunded the difference in price — no action is required from the registrant.

Please, share this news with your Rotary community and invite a fellow member to attend this year’s convention with you.

Thank you for your support, and we will see you in Houston!
