District Event Status

District Conference June 19-21, 
The 2020 Conference Team are closely monitoring the situation and will develop contingency plans to cover a variety of scenarios to minimize the disruption to our operation and calendar whilst ensuring the health and safety of our members.

The District Conference 2020 will meet on March 24 to review the current situation. Options under consideration include full cancellation, postponement or offering some form of virtual conference.
PETS/Leadership Exchange - Postponed - see updates below
The current situation of a global COVID-19 pandemic requires us to seriously consider the potential risks to Rotarians at upcoming District gatherings. After careful and deliberate consideration, we believe that caution is in the best interest of our membership. Therefore, it has been determined that we will not gather in Sarnia for our Leadership Exchange (formerly known as President Elect Training and District Training Assembly) on April 3rd and 4th 2020.
We have cancelled all Hotel Bookings and Training Session Registrations.

The leadership exchange was designed to provide the opportunity to gather together, talk informally, and share ideas for both Rotaractors and Rotarians and grow Rotary!
Our plan is to have multiple Leadership Exchange sites in your area on May 30th with Rotaractors and Rotarians coming together and broadcasting from a remote location. 
More information to come as we adjust to our new reality.
Rotary Youth Exchange Program, 
The District 6330 Youth Exchange committee working closely with Central States Youth Exchange, the YEO's and the students (and their parents) to offer them the best advice available as the situation unfolds.  Based on current information and government advisories regarding travel, we feel that it is safer for students to stay in place in their host countries (travel appears to be much riskier than not travelling).  However, if parents want their child to return home, we are working with them to make it happen.  Additionally, some countries/districts have decided to end exchanges early this year due to local circumstances which is also resulting in some students being returning home early.
Letter dated March 15th, from Brent Sheppard, Chair Central States Youth Exchange
