Dear Fellow Rotarian and member of the family of Rotary,
The NORTHERN LIGHTS ROTARY INSTITUTE begins with sessions for District Governors Elect and Nominee and their partners. This gateway leads the participants later to the International Assembly and helps them to be prepared for an unforgettable and wonderful District Governor year.
GETS and GoNTS are followed by three excellent Seminars: how to do good through The Rotary Foundation, how to build a strong and effective group of Assistant Governors and how to train and be trained for various service positions within districts.
The Institute itself offers deeper knowledge about the important issues within Rotary: polio eradication, The Rotary Foundation, peace promotion, finances, new strategic plan, membership development, Rotary brand and visibility, our values.
Rotarians from Oulu area welcome you to an InterIntercity meeting followed by a friendship dinner. There will be a Governor Generations Reunion, where you have the chance to meet and dine with your governor batchmates. The Gala Dinner offers you a possibility to meet and greet Rotary Leaders, enjoy delicious food and dance the night away – at least part of the night!
A Zone Institute with all events linked to it is a great opportunity for experienced and incoming Rotary leaders to meet, exchange ideas, discuss and bond in friendship. When all this takes place in an easygoing and enjoyable atmosphere, serious business mixed with lots of fun, you just have to be there!
The Organizing Committee together with Rotarians in Rovaniemi will arrange a post-conference tour to visit the City of Santa Claus. This limited excursion calls for early registration.
Virpi Honkala, RI Director 2020 – 2022
Convener of the Institute
