2020 Zonta District 6 Fall Conference

So, who said it couldn’t be done!! I am so happy to say that District 6 was able to hold our Annual District Fall Conference in October. In many ways it did not look like any other conference we have had with masked faces, less members and social distancing. However, there were many things that were exactly like past conferences that included excellent speakers, workshops, programs, and a sisterhood of coming together in the spirit of Zonta. Whether you attended or not, I hope you feel more empowered to keep the Mission of Zonta alive through those who represented you and shared their conference experiences with you. Please go to the Zonta website and open the conference links posted there to view the conference events on your own or as a club meeting program. A huge thank you to the entire District 6 Board and Area 5 Conference Committee for turning “we can’t do that” into “we can do this!” Save the dates for the next

Zonta Foundation for Women
Congratulations to District 6


Fellow District 6 members, we can be proud of our efforts to support Zonta and its work in our communities and around the world.

A heartfelt thank you is due to all those who heard the call and donated.  For our Fall Conference you donated $9,020 to the Zonta Foundation for Women. For the Every Member Every November Campaign $5,800 was added.  Adding in other gifts and club gifts, our district has raised through November, $29,219 this year for District 6.

Of course, we still have a way to go yet before the end of the biennium. Governor Anna and I hope to start Zonta’s next 100 years by raising $100,000 in this biennium.  It will be a challenge with Covid 19 dampening our club fundraisers, but I am constantly amazed by the creativity and enthusiasm that I see throughout the district.  We can do this!

Even with Covid hindering us in the last part of the 2018-2020 biennium, District 6 managed to raise over $110,000 for ZFW plus an additional $57,000 for the endowment.  You make a wonderful example for the Zonta world.

While the Centennial Anniversary Endowment Campaign is officially finished, Zonta continues to encourage endowment giving to help ensure Zonta’s future. It will be crucial to our stability and ability to face unexpected events. (Covid 19?)

Many of us have given more than once to support each campaign.  Thank You Thank You Thank You.  For those of you who haven’t yet made a donation, this may be the time to join your fellow District 6 members by making a donation.

Since Zoom is now our lives, please remember that I can be available to make a Zoom presentation for your club.

Happy Holiday season and stay safe

New District 6 Newsletter Coming Soon

New Beginnings!

Welcome to the 2020-2022 Biennium of Zonta International.  The start of this new Biennium brings us many new things.

  • The start of a new century of Zonta
  • New International Officers and Board Members
  • A new District Governor and District Board Members
  • In some clubs, new club officers
  • A new club year
  • Many new challenges and new opportunities

What an exciting time to be in Zonta!  It all fits perfectly into the Zonta International theme for this biennium which is Transitions, Changes and New Opportunities.

I am honored to be serving as your new District 6 Governor with a fantastic District Board.  Everyone is already hard at work to bring you new programs and fresh ideas for the next two years.  Each board member is dedicated to serve you and help meet your needs.  Please do not hesitate to call on any of us with your questions or to share your ideas and concerns.  Through our District website and newsletters, you will have the chance to meet all the board members and learn what they are planning.  Our goal is to serve you.

Speaking of goals, the District 6 Board has agreed to adopt the Zonta International goals that were approved for this biennium.  There are only three of them and those goals are:

Goal 1:  Programs and Projects:  Education, Violence Against Women and Advocacy

Goal 2:  Membership:  Retention, Recruitment, Leadership

Goal 3:  Financial Resources:  ZI Foundation and Endowment

It is my hope that your club will also adopt these goals, and maybe even a couple of your own.  Let’s get this new century off to a great start!

In the Zonta spirit of Transition,

Anna Weselak, Governor
