Are you attending the RI 2015 São Paulo Convention from June 6th – 9th, 2015? WATCH the Rotary International Convention 2015 video below and VISIT the convention website at www.riconvention.org. Don’t miss out on the fun and opportunity to explore the Brazilian culture!!
After careful consideration, Rotary International President Gary Huang and the RI Board have decided to change the dates of the 2015 Rotary Convention in São Paulo to Saturday, 6 June, through Tuesday, 9 June – starting and ending one day earlier than previously scheduled.
The dates were changed because the original opening day (Sunday, 7 June) coincided with one of the city’s most popular parades. The new start date will dramatically reduce traffic congestion and make it easier for Rotary members to attend the opening plenary sessions. It will also make it convenient to attend our very own Rotary Carnival, a Host Organization Committee event, on Saturday evening.
We will communicate the new dates through all available Rotary media, including our websites, newsletters, and magazines. Please make certain everyone in your district is aware of the change by updating the 2015 Rotary Convention dates on your district websites, calendars, and communications.
