By the time the 2021 Zone Summit convenes in Naples, FL, it will have been 674 days since the closing session in Atlanta. That closing session marks the last time leaders from Zones 33 and 34 were gathered together physically for a Zone event. That is why we are calling this the Naples Reunion. Rotarians have learned to adapt and change, a successful Virtual Zone Summit in November 2020 is evidence. However, we look forward to the opportunity to spend time and fellowship with our friends in Zones 33 and 34.
Soak up the sun in Naples and catch up with old friends! This reunion is one that you don’t want to miss. We have a line-up of incredible speakers with amazing stories and plenty of Rotary insight to inspire you until your Rotary year. Additionally, we have an unbelievable team of trainers who are here to answer all your questions. Expand your reach and meet your fellow District Governor-Elects from Zones 33/34!
This reunion also allows for DGE’s to mingle with their rising members who are participating in the Emerging Leaders program. Together, we will build “a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves,” starting with the Naples Reunion Conference!
Known as the Paradise Coast, Naples is situated in southwest Florida where white, pristine sand meets the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
There are plenty of places to explore for shopping and dining that cannot be missed! Naples is home to many treasures of discovery whether it be in downtown or further inland.
If salt or sand is not your thing, head into the wild of the neighboring swamp forests to experience this part of Florida like you never have before. Maybe pick up a new sport as Naples is the Pickleball capital of the world. Regardless, there are plenty of activities to peak one’s interests inside or out!
“Rotary kindled the spark within me to look beyond myself and embrace humanity, service became a way of life for me and I, like many others, adopted the guiding philosophy that ‘Service is the rent I pay for the space I occupy on this earth, and I want to be a good tenant of this earth.’”
President Shekhar will not be able to join us this year in Naples, but his words as spoken during the 2021 International Assembly, provide a look at the man that will lead our great organization.
