We are now two months away from our January 17 & 18, Rotary World Peace Conference 2020. It is amazing, what started as an idea 2 years ago, is now nearly ready for you and your members to attend and participate.

150 experts from across the country and around the world have been secured and are ready to assemble to share their solutions. Our six general sessions include a Nobel Laureate Nominee, the CEO of Institute for Economics and Peace, the Chief of Staff of the Peace Corps, a former Ambassador and CEO of the Carter Center, the celebrity spokesperson for World Vision, the celebrity spokesperson for UN Refugee Agency, the father of modern mediation, the CEO of CARE USA, the CEO of Project Concern International, a 2017 Nobel Peace Prize recipient and co-president of International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, the President of Rotary International and more.
Our 104 breakout sessions have experts on human trafficking, child abuse, spousal abuse, cyber-bullying, trauma therapy, sexual harassment, unconscious bias, violence prevention in our cities, homes, and schools and much more.

Our exhibitor hall has space for 90 non-profits to exhibit and is half reserved.

I encourage you to visit our website www.peaceconference2020.org Look over the activities and speakers. Consider attending the Friday night dinner to honor Community Heroes, which will be emceed by Fritz Coleman, Channel 4. Join us for the Saturday dinner, which is followed by a Peace Concert.

To date, we have registrants from 35 states and 33 countries joining us. If you have not already registered, please reserve your space today! If you are staying overnight, we have special room rates at the Ontario Gateway Hotel and the Ontario Doubletree.

Please share this conference information with your members, your business associates, your friends. This conference is open to the public. You will return from the conference with solutions to apply in your community. Save a child from being taken into the sex trade. Save a child from being bullied and hurting herself or himself.

Registration for the conference is $289 for the two days with lunch included. There is a special rate for college students at $150. There are special one-day rates, as well. You will not find another conference of this magnitude, with this many solution providers, under one roof, at this price.

Please make the decision to register today. Encourage your members, friends, family and business associates to register. Together, we can truly make a difference, if we are willing to come together, learn together, share with each other and roll up our sleeves and get to work!

Thank you
