Gerry Gerlach is the District Conference salesman, keen to take a large delegation of Wollundry members to Leeton for a weekend of taking Rotary to a new level of fervour.
There is one constant with District Conferences, we come back inspired by a great weekend,  fired up to spread the word of our achievements and seek out like minded people to share our sense of pride.
Accomodation for Wollundry Rotarians has been reserved, in excess of current requirements, and Gerry must find candidates to use the rooms, or relinquish the bookings. The registrations for conference are being made later and later each year, so we need commitment, early commitment, from our members.
Gerry introduced District Governor George Weston. He outlined the topics that would be emphasised at the conference this year, and Youth programs were dominant. Youth Exchange, Rotaract, RYPEN, and RYLA were all acknowledged.
ABC sports personality Peter Wilkins will be among the speakers, along with the ambassador from Timor Leste, and Brendan Farrell who is the driving force behind the Burrumbuttock Hay run program to help drought affected farmers in Queensland.
The Dinner on Saturday night will be themed, with "Water" as the topic. 
There is an "app" on the website to facilitate registration - just look for the red Text.
George pointed out that Conference attendance is paid by the district, and the only cost for those attending is meals and refreshments.
