Create hope in the world.

About 2024 Conference

Come to Penticton, from the Sylix Okanagan nation’s snpink’tn, meaning “a place to stay forever.” We are situated between two lakes, with over 15 acres of premium sandy beaches paired with a refined urban centre, orchards and vineyards, and diverse accessible trails perfect for outdoor adventure.

We have a series of engaging speakers. They’ll talk about hope and how service minded people create hope and opportunity for others. Speakers have broad appeal as the conference is open to everyone.

Breakout Sessions

Sharing ideas and solutions and learning from the experience of others is a way to make Rotary stronger- more effective. In breakout sessions you get to provide your input and engage in meaningful discussion and exchanges that will re-energize and inform how you work toward creating hope in the  world.

Youth Exchange Presentations

The Rotary Youth Exchange Program (YEP) is the heart of Rotary’s youth programs. The decades that this program has been in operation have demonstrated that this program helps produce future leaders. We’ll talk about our various youth programs and hear from current students in our exchange.
