2019 District Conference
On September 20 – 22 was held in Indianapolis, In. We conducted our district business and also celebrated the 100th anniversary of Zonta. There were about 110 Zontians form all over the District as well as our International guest Christina Bergqvist.
As we pulled into the hotel parking lot, we were greeted by an 18 wheeler with the Just Say No wrapped around it. The dinner was started by presentation of the colors by a Jr ROTC group made up of all girls from a local high school. They then joined us for dinner, what a great way for them to be mentored by our group.
We carried out our business with the election of the upcoming board of directors
and passed a budget for the next biennium. We then had an open forum where
Christina was brave enough to take on any and all questions. For some of our
younger members this was great education about Zonta. It was also a learning
experience for Christina as well.
We met our District 6 International Young Women in Public Affairs and learned
about her plans.
On Sunday the conference ended with an invitation to next year’s Convention and
next year’s conference which will be in Joliet. Sundays hi light was Tammy giving
us an up date on her trip and ZI project Learning Madagascar.
Submitted by Elaine Rynders, District 6 Governor
As the biennium draws to a close, I’d like to express my sincere thank you to all members of District 6 for allowing me to serve as your Governor. It has been an honor and a privilege. I’d also like to thank the members of the D6 leadership team. They are an incredible bunch of individuals who served the district tirelessly for the last two years. We are luck that any of them are continuing to serve in the next biennium. With our Centennial Anniversary Celebration and the 2020 Convention in Chicago, District 6 has a lot to look forward to in the next biennium.
