The hotel is one of the new establishments in Kisumu located on the Kisumu – Vihiga road.

Kisumu streets are adorned with banners welcoming Rotarians to the DCA. The purpose of the district conference is to provide opportunities for networking, inspirational addresses, and discussions of Rotary-related matters.

The conference should also give Rotarians and clubs a vision of Rotary beyond the club level and provide a memorable fellowship experience. Many Rotarians have said that they were never truly enthusiastic about Rotary until they saw an inspirational presentation at a district conference.

The rooms are cosy and spacious.

The hotel has paved walkways that make moving around very easy.

You can also relax at the reception area.

Purpose of a DCA

The purpose of the district conference is to provide opportunities for networking, inspirational addresses, and discussions of Rotary-related matters. The event should recognize the service programs, projects, and public relations achievements in the district in order to inspire Rotarians to become more involved in service.

The conference should also give Rotarians and clubs a vision of Rotary beyond the club level and provide a memorable fellowship experience. Many Rotarians have said that they were never truly enthusiastic about Rotary until they saw an inspirational presentation at a district conference.

Every person who attends a DCA finds that being a Rotarian becomes even more rewarding because of the new experiences, insights and acquaintances developed at the conference. Those who attend a conference enjoy going back, year after year.

What to expect

At a minimum, your district conference program/itinerary should address the following:

  1. Schedule the RI president’s representative’s two conference addresses and the brief remarks at the end of the conference.
  2. Discuss and adopt the audited financial statement from the previous Rotary year.
  3. Approve the district levy, if it was not approved at the district assembly or presidentselect training seminar.
  4. Elect the district’s representative to the Council on Legislation, during the Rotary year two years before the Council meets, if the district chooses not to use the nominating committee procedure.
  5. Elect the member of the nominating committee for the RI Board of Directors, as appropriate for your zone.

Many Rotarians have said that they were never truly enthusiastic about Rotary until they saw an inspirational presentation at a district conference.
