3rdAnnual D5495 Pre-district conference Peace Event
“Stepping Up for Peace”
  June 25, 2020   10am – 4pm
  Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak Resort
Your D5495 Peacebuilders Network has organized a one-day peace conference at the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak.  Held the day prior to the District Conference each year, this year’s event is a mix of “TED Talk” and World Café formats.  The purpose is to provide inspiring and practical ideas that Rotarians can take back to their clubs.  This years’ theme, “Stepping Up for Peace,” focuses on the winning combination of dialogue and action.  Dynamic speakers are followed by breakouts with opportunities to delve more deeply into topics.   
The event topics were inspired by the recent Rotary International World Peace Conference in Ontario, CA. The day is designed to give attendees a flavor of some current and effective peace-related Rotary initiatives and projects elsewhere in America and to encourage each of us to further peace in our communities as the People of Action that we are!
NEW THIS YEAR! High school age registrants are encouraged to attend—especially Interactors!  If your Rotary Club sponsors one or more Interact Clubs, please do consider providing your Youth with ‘scholarships’ for the day. Our Rotary Youth have demonstrated their high energy, leadership abilities, maturity, and passion for Peace.  Let’s invest in a peaceful future!
Registration is available through the District Conference website.  Cost is $55 to cover lunch and costs of hosting.  Be sure your club is well represented this year!
