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.
Information on PDGs Reunion has been moved to a separate page. Please send us updates of your reunions to be featured on this page. Check this page for announcements of upcoming reunions.
The place to be at the RI Convention is the House of Friendship - and we want to make sure we have people at our booth every day at the RI Toronto convention from Saturday 23 June through Wednesday 27 June to help welcome others, make new friends, and help get the word out. If you can spare a couple of hours on any of the days, please sign up today by clicking here. You will be amazed at the people you will meet!
Volunteering at a booth in the House of Friendship is a great experience - and we have a prime booth location. It's a great way to meet old friends and make new ones.
See us in Toronto at Booth 216, we are sharing a booth with the Polio Survivors Rotarian Action Group in the House of Friendship.

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.
