Hello, Fellow Rotarians and friends of District 9810,

The Conference 2023 District 9810 Canberra has the potential to bring together over 1,100 members and friends from the district in Victoria.  We are planning what will be a spectacular, highly visible, and engaging event. The Conference will be the first one held out of Victoria since 2018. 


The conference will be held over two days 4th and 5th March 2023 and a Sports/Tour Day 3rd March 2023.

The conference theme is 'Diversity', and we will be 'Looking at the past, embracing the future.'  At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realising our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. 

We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, colour, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs. 


I encourage you to attend the Conference 2023 District 9810  Canberra.

We have secured special ROTARY rates at a number of Doma Hotels and within the triangle of Canberra's major attractions and conference venue locations. Special rates have also been secured at the Rydges Canberra.
