2018 Convention Breakout Session
We will be holding our first PDGs Fellowship Breakout Session at the Toronto Convention. It will be on Wednesday 27 June, 2018, from 13:00 to 14:00 in Room 715. Title: Preparing For Transition To A Past District Governor. Rotary rarely advises on how to contribute your time and talents as you transition out of the DG role. In this breakout we will discuss the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead so you can better prepare for the years that follow.

RI President Elect Ian Riseley and PDG Juliet Riseley were hosted by the Fellowship of Rotarian PDGs at a gala dinner in Vancouver, BC at the prestigious Terminal City Club on Friday, October 21, 2016. The dinner was attended by 30 PDGs, DGs, DGEs, DGNs and partners from Districts 5020, 5040, 5050 and 5370.
RIPE Ian spoke about plans for Rotary next year such as introducing Cultural Exchanges funded by clubs & districts, plans for the 2018 RI Convention in Toronto and presidential conferences with a peace theme. He answered questions from those attending on the impact of re-zoning, polio eradication and hinted at a theme tie and scarf with a vibrant flora design.
PDG Penny Offer described the purposes of the Fellowship started by RIPP Ray Klinginsmith in 2012 and encouraged the group to become members and visit the website www.pdgsfellowship.org and Facebook page (Fellowship of Rotarian PDGs and Friends).
The event was organized by PDG Fellowship members PDG Penny Offer and PDG Chris Offer.

The purposes of the PDGs Fellowship, as stated in the bylaws, are as follows:
The primary purpose of the fellowship is to improve and enhance the existing friendship and fellowship among Rotarians who have served as district governors by increasing the number of reunions and similar events at all levels of Rotary, including the annual conventions. The secondary purposes are to provide additional opportunities for past district governors to remain actively involved and connected at the international level of Rotary and to motivate past district governors to support important Rotary activities, such as PolioPlus, TRF fundraising, international service projects, and membership growth.
