The 2022 Rotary International Convention 4-8 June in Houston, Texas, USA, is fast approaching, and so is the deadline for attendees to take advantage of the reduced registration rate.  After two years, this is an opportunity for us to meet new friends and reunite with old friends.

This will be a convention like none before, showcasing Rotary’s ability to bring people together, connect, share ideas, and strengthen our friendships as we Serve to Change Lives. We have overcome so many obstacles in the past two years, and this is our chance to show the world what Rotary does best. We look forward to welcoming you and your club members to Houston in 2022! 
The Rotary International Board met earlier this month and confirmed the 2022 Rotary International Convention will be held as an in-person event in Houston, Texas from June 4-8, 2022.

With a continuing commitment to the health and safety of all Rotary members, it was also agreed that all registrants must provide proof of their full vaccination status or proof of a negative rapid antigen test (professionally administered),and follow all established health and safety protocols.

Understanding that many people delayed registering for the Convention until there was clarity about the event and safety protocols, an additional promotional registration rate of $495 has been authorized through the end of February, and will apply retroactively to higher rates that may have been paid starting in December.

The Convention and Host Organizing committee is pulling out all stops to ensure that this event is a WOW! as this will be the first time our international Rotary family has been back together in more than 2 years. 

Houston is a go!
