Last weekend just over 200 people, most from New Zealand headed to Waipuna Hotel in Auckland for the 2017  Rotary Symposium and Future Leaders Forum.
 
Key note speakers included John Hewko - General Secretary, Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation,
Noel Trevaskis - Rotary International Director 2017/18,     Ray Davies - Emirates Team New Zealand,      Sir Anand Satyanand - Former Governor General of New Zealand.
 
District 9940 was well represented for the weekend.  
 
A number wore RAGES tee shirts on the Saturday and that, combined with a "stall" was sufficient to raise the profile of RAGES  -  Rotary Action Group for Endangered Species.  It was commented that the Environment should become one of the Rotary Focus areas.
