As we come together to celebrate the 104th Rotary International Convention in Lisbon, Portugal, 23-26 June 2013, peace should be uppermost in our hearts and minds. To encourage you and your fellow Rotarians to experience Lisbon as A Harbor for Peace, I am issuing an attendance challenge that I hope will encourage you to promote the convention.
Here are the details:
- The governor and spouse or partner of the top 25 attending districts will be given appropriate reserved seating in the convention hall along with the Rotary Senior Leaders.
- The contest begins immediately and will end at 17:00 Central Daylight Time (GMT minus 5 hours) on Monday, 1 April 2013.
- Winners will be selected on a percentage basis. Total paid registrations from each district will be divided by total district membership as of the January 2013 semiannual report (SAR). The 25 districts with the highest percentage of attendees will be declared the winners.
- The winners will be announced by 15 May 2013.
I am sure you are as excited as I am about participating in this contest to promote another wonderful international convention.
I look forward to greeting you in Lisbon, Portugal on 23 June 2013.
