VISION

TOGETHER WE SEE A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE UNITE AND TAKE ACTION TO CREATE LASTING CHANGE ACROSS THE GLOBE IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND IN OURSELVES.

– Rotary International's Vision Statement

WHAT IS ZIC

The Zone 28 & 32 Interact Convention (ZIC) is the first conference of its kind in the Rotary world. Over the course of 4 days, 250 passionate Interactors from across our two zones will join together in Calgary, Alberta to shift the conversation around Rotary Interact. Through interactive sessions and high-profile speakers, we explore topics of resilience, the necessity of youth leadership in our everchanging world, and the power of collaboration to tackle global issues.

 

We strongly believe that when Rotary Interact students are able to connect with like-minded leaders and take action to further their leadership skills, they not only have the power to change their respective clubs and communities but also their lives. Our hope is that students leave this conference as better leaders than they were when they entered.

LOCATION

ZIC 2022 will be held at The Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre.

Known as Alberta's largest city and the third largest city in Canada, Calgary is also the hub of Rotary International District 5360. It's a beautiful and diverse city at the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers with countless skyscrapers.

From March 10th, 2022 to March 13th, 2022, participants will reside in The Best Western Premier Calgary Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre. This is where the majority of meals and our innovative programming will occur over the four days. Have no fear though, we will give students an opportunity to tour the city and familiarize themselves with the rich history of Rotary International District 5360 throughout the conference. Fun Fact: this particular Best Western location is Rotarian managed!
