Jordan: Monday, May 19 - 2003 @ 12:20

It will host over 1500 participants from Rotary Clubs from all over the District. The topics that will be discussed build on the Rotary tradition of applying business skills to serve underprivileged communities. Rotary, is based on encouraging and fostering service as a basis of worthy enterprise. The Amman District Conference will focus on four areas; alleviation of poverty, Health care, literacy and the family of the Rotary.

“Next year Rotarians will gather in Jordan to attend the 68th District 2450 Conference, not only will this provide a great forum for ideas on best ways to serve our communities, but will empower the region to help itself improve in areas such as literacy and health care.” said Samir Seikaly, District Governor for 2003/2004. “ Our theme for 2003/4 ‘Lend a Hand’ as Rotarians are well known for their commitment in reaching out to others and supporting development activities in a ‘smart way’ that uses their business expertise to make far-significant changes.”

Rotary focuses on the advancement of international understanding, goodwill, and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in service. This fellowship has been exemplified by the regional co-operation displayed by Conferences and Seminars that unite Rotarians in their District enjoying fellowship and friendship at large. The Rotary Clubs of the District, which have dedicated to help their communities are made up of leading local professional and business figures. Rotarians would not spare time and resources to participate in projects that deliver valuable resources and assistance to the local communities build on the Rotarian tradition of ‘Service above Self’.

“The annual District Conference provides attendees with the chance to share experiences and knowledge on the most effective ways to move forward on translating the international campaigns to their own communities,” said Muhsen Al-Mufleh, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of the 68th District Conference. “We hope that by highlighting the work of the Rotarians around the region, we will be able to have a greater impact and grow our membership. Club members are the most important asset that allow Rotary to carry out its many humanitarian efforts.”

The 68th Rotary District Conference in Amman, Jordan between May 1st-4th 2004, will provide an opportunity to share Friendship and Fellowship in their broad sense. The programme will allow participants to travel and enjoy the many tourist attractions which Jordan has to offer, as well as offering visits to the homes of Jordanian Rotarians so that they can enjoy the traditional spirit of hospitality that Jordan is renowned for.

“We have extensive preparations underway to deliver a world-class event and are glad that this will allow Jordan to showcase what it has to offer to the region,” said Samir Seikaly, District Governor for 2003/04. “The event demonstrates that the District can make very positive steps in providing support to its communities by working together to build on the Rotary’s global network of community volunteers.”
