Point of Contact for the 2020 RI Convention, HOC
Aloha Club Members,
I am the Point of Contact for the 2020 Rotary International Convention Host Organization Committee, HOC for short, and my job is to keep the Club up-to-date on the convention and also the HOC activities.
As a recap, the 111th international convention is well underway with about 18,000 already registered.  Imagine Rotarians from all over the world coming to Hawaii to experience the Power of Rotary and enjoy our island hospitality!  There will be lots of collaboration on projects and partnerships, lots to learn about Rotary and a lot of inspiration from awesome speakers.  The convention will take place at the Hawaii Convention Center June 6 to 10, 2020.  There will be great speakers, maybe 100 breakout sessions and several hundred booths in the House of Friendship.  Rotary International is responsible for the convention logistics, the program, speakers, breakouts and the House of Friendship.
The HOC is responsible for the local events, which includes 2 lunch cruises, a windward fishpond service project, a walk for peace in Ala Moana park, host hospitality and a fabulous concert at the Waikiki Shell.  We have a website for registrants to sign up for the HOC events and also tours and activities.  In order to cover the expenses, we need your help with donations and sponsorships.   If you would like to donate or can reach out to your company contacts, it would be much appreciated.  If the amount is $6,000 or higher, please let Sonya Mendez, the Sponsorship Chair know, because we need to get Rotary International’s approval first. 
We also need a lot of volunteers.  If you would like to greet people at the airport, provide info at the Convention Center or just want to be in the thick of the action, sign up either on the HOC or District website.  This is an initial volunteer registration.  You’ll have a chance to choose your shift later this year.
This convention is an opportunity for you to see the Rotary big picture without having to pay a lot for airfare and hotel rooms.  It will bring a lot of attention to Hawaii, not to mention revenue for the State. So, what are you waiting for, register now before the price goes up in December.
Here are web addresses for more information:

The Rotary International website to register is:
Thank you for listening and I hope you will take action to donate, volunteer and register for the convention.  It’s going to be a memorable opportunity for us to share the Aloha spirit with Rotarians from around the world, make lasting friendships - and learn more about Rotary ourselves!
Yours in Rotary,
Charlene Meyers, POC Liaison
