Zonta International President delighted by Yokohama during 2018 Convention planning meetings

Last month, I had the pleasure of visiting Yokohama, Japan, where Zonta International is hosting its 2018 Convention.

I had some wonderful planning sessions with the Convention Committee, including a tour of the Pacifico Convention Center.

We all had the honor of meeting Yokohama Mayor Fumiko Hayashi, and were able to present our convention to her.

In addition, I met with and presented our plans to representatives from the Zonta Clubs of Yokohama, Yokosuka, Kanagawa, Tokyo I and Tokyo II. All of our Zontians in District 26 are very enthusiastic about having the Zonta International Convention in their country for the first time.

When we were not planning, we did some sightseeing in Yokohama. We will share more information about these attractions in the coming months.

After my trip, I have a renewed excitement about the 2018, and I am eager for our members to experience Yokohama.
