    Rotary International

    Who Are We? 

    Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers
    who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change –
    across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
    Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years,
    Rotary's people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action
    on sustainable projects.  From literacy and peace to water and health,
    we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.

     Our History

    Rotary started with the vision of one man — Paul Harris. The Chicago attorney formed
    the Rotary Club of Chicago on 23 February 1905, so professionals with diverse backgrounds could
    exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships.
    Over time, Rotary’s reach and vision gradually extended to humanitarian service.
    Members have a long track record of addressing challenges in their communities and around the world.

    Our Mission

    We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders. 

    Our Vision Statement

     Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change —
    across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

    Our Causes

     Rotary is dedicated to causes that build international relationships, improve lives,
    and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.
    Our 7 areas of focus for our service are: Promoting Peace; Fighting Disease; Providing Clean Water,
    Sanitation and Hygiene; Saving Mothers and Children; Supporting Education; 
    Growing Local Economies; and Protecting Environment.


    Our Leaders

    Our leaders at Rotary exemplify all of the qualities that make our members extraordinary:
    integrity, expertise and a commitment to service.
    Rotary is led by a diverse international team of top executives.
    Whether developing Rotary policy, providing financial support, managing a global staff,
    or advancing Rotary's strategic plan, each member of the team is dedicated to helping
    our members connect and take action to create sustainable change. 

    The Rotary Foundation


    The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives
    both close to home and around the world.   
    Since it was founded more than 100 years ago,
    the Foundation has spent more than $5.5 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.
    With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.


    The Rotary Foundation helps Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace
    by improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty.

    Q: Will this be online conference?


    A: This is planned to be a hybrid conference, meaning that we will have both: (1) actual conference onsite with the President and DGs from Zone 11& 12 and the guests from Japan and elsewhere, and (2) online conference through YOUTUBE broadcasting for others due to COVID 19 pandemic situation. However, this may have to be changed and have only online broadcasting.

     Q: Who can Attend this conference and how long will this conference take?


    A:  Anyone, Rotarians and non-Rotarians both, can attend this conference via online. 

    This President's conference is scheduled to be about 4 hours long from 8:30-12:30 AM Korean time on October 5, 2021.  From 12:30-13:00 there will be video  playing of local service activities.

    Q: Where is Gyeongju and is there ways to get to know Korea and Gyongju?

    A:  Yes, we are providing sightseeing tour videos on this website for many cities in Korea, including Gyeongju, the city where our conference is held. Please watch our your videos and learn more about Korea and its beautiful cities. 

    Q: Should I make my own travel arrangement if I decide to attend the conference?


    A: Yes. However, there are so many uncontrollable factors at this moment due to COVID 19 crisis and the conference period is only 4 hours. In addition, there is a risk that RI President may not be able to attend the conference and conduct this conference online even for himself if the situation gets worse. Therefore, we recommend you to hold and wait and see before you decide to attend this conference physically. 

    Q: Should I make my own travel arrangement if I decide to attend the conference?

However, if you decide to stay at The K-Hotel in Gyeongju where the conference is planned to be held, please make sure you mention to the hotel that you will be attending the conference in order to get any applicable discounts. All other arrangements beside hotel reservation should be made on your own based on information provided on this website.
