            Toronto 2018 Rotary International Convention Host Committee
November 24, 2016
November 2016 update on the Toronto 2018 Rotary International Convention
Excitement is building among Rotarians in the Districts Hosting the 2018 Rotary International Convention (6330, 7010, 7040, 7070, 7080 and 7090). People are asking how they can help out. Clubs are asking if they can participate in Home Hosting. Folks are coming up with all types of entertainment and speaker suggestions. Others want to register and get their hotel accommodations lined up.
It is absolutely fantastic to see this level of interest this far out and we are frankly over joyed with everyone’s enthusiasm.
Toronto 2018 will indeed need a lot of support both with Rotarians registering and attending the convention and also by becoming Ambassadors (Volunteers) at the convention itself.
Right now the Toronto 2018 Host Organizing Committee (HOC) work is still somewhat in the background as we let the Atlanta 2017 Convention build to be a great Rotary International Convention. Highly visible Toronto 2018 elements such as Registration, Hotels, Announcing Speakers, Entertainment and Events will only go live in Atlanta this coming June.
Right now we are putting together the last pieces for our Volunteer Registry system which will allow any and all of the Rotarians in the Hosting Districts to volunteer to help out the Toronto 2018 Convention. Whether it be working on a committee in your area of expertise, acting as an Ambassador welcoming folks to Toronto or being an HOC Venue Ambassador you will be needed. All you will have to do is go to the website and enter you information to become part Toronto 2018. We will be announcing the launch of the Volunteer Registry as soon as it is up and running.
Sub-committees such as Home Hosting, House of Friendship, HOC Events and Entertainment are starting up and look forward to engaging more Rotarians in the Districts as they build their plans for 2018.
For those who are asking “What can I do now?” The best thing that you could do is register for Atlanta 2017, attend and talk up Toronto 2018 where attendees will find INSPIRATION AROUND EVERY CORNER.

Pope Francis thanks Rotary for its efforts to end polio and urges Rotary members to continue vaccination campaigns

The Honourable Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie, announced the renewal of the partnership between Government of Canada and Rotary Foundation Canada by providing a total of up to $18 million to help save the lives of vulnerable children and reduce poverty in the world’s poorest countries.

During the next four years, the Government of Canada will contribute two dollars for every dollar raised by Rotary Foundation Canada in support of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative’s Endgame Strategy, to a maximum contribution of $12 million. The funds will be provided to UNICEF to support the goal of eradicating polio worldwide by 2018.

The renewal of the partnership reinforces Canada’s ongoing leadership on polio. It builds on the Pennies & More for Polio initiative, through which Rotary Foundation Canada raised $2.2 million between 2012 and 2013, which was matched by the Government of Canada.

The Government of Canada will also contribute up to $6 million to support Rotary Foundation Canada’s efforts to help advance maternal, newborn and child health, secure the future of children and youth, and increase sustainable economic growth in under-served communities in developing countries.

Today, the world stands on the verge of being able to end the preventable deaths of women and children within a generation. Canada remains steadfast in its commitment to work with Canadian and international partners to achieve this goal.

Choose one of the following option and then notify DG Michael Bell that you have done this and he will make sure you get you pin.
