District 23 hosts conference webinar

District 23 held its district conference online from 10-12 September. 

Three weeks before the conference in Bendigo, Australia, a COVID-19 lockdown forced the event to change from in-person to virtual. Fortunately, Governor Sandra Burns and the conference committee had prepared for the likelihood of a lockdown and had already made the necessary steps to change to a virtual conference. 

Despite the distance in replanning the conference, the Conference Committee and other planners could present a highly professional and inspirational event to more than 300 attendees. 

Nominees for the 2022-2024 district positions gave their speeches online, and delegates voted electronically. An online flag ceremony and ceremony of remembrance captured the Zonta spirit. Many of the attendees said the event was successful and they were inspired, rejuvenated and motivated by the event.
