The International Convention

Each May or June, Rotary International holds a worldwide convention “to stimulate, inspire, and inform all Rotarians at an international level.” The convention, which is generally held in a different part of the world each year, is the annual meeting to conduct the business of the association. The planning process usually begins several years in advance. The RI Board invites cities to submit proposals at the start of the convention bidding process.

The convention are truly international, attended by 20,000 to 40,000 Rotarians and guests. In addition to being fun events, international conventions offer Rotarians unique opportunities for vocation travel. All members should plan to participate in an RI Convention to discover the real internationality of Rotary. It is an experience you’ll never forget.
