Why attend Discon 2020?

Every year, friends and family of Rotary in District 9212 (Kenya, Ethiopia, Eritrea and South Sudan) meet for the annual District Conference Assembly (DisCon). The 95th DisCon comes to Nairobi, Kenya- the city under the sun- on 2nd to 4th April, 2020 at the Safaricom Stadium in Kasarani.

This is a unique conference, for a number of reasons:

1. Composition: It is a joint conference for Rotarians and Rotaractors, bringing together unique strengths, experiences and exposure to chart a rejuvenated future for Rotary.

2. Attendance: It will be attended by global trailblazers in Rotary, Rotaract, International Organizations, as well as leaders in public and private sectors, as well as the development world, sharing relevant international perspectives that shape our world.

3. Engaging: A departure from typical conference presentations, the DicCon 2020 will offer participants unrivalled opportunities to engage in enriching discussions on topical issues.

4. Entertainment: Music- an international language and food for the soul- will characterize the conference, providing the much needed break from the formal sessions of DisCon 2020.

5. Educative: Discon 2020 offers you ample formal and informal time meet and learn from Rotarians in District 9212 and beyond, and engage in partnerships, sharing of best practices and discuss other common interests, on the sidelines of the conference.

6. Transformative: DisCon 2020 will harness your leadership potential and prepare you to become a better and effective in Rotary as well as your vocation.

7. Home Hospitality & Homestays: And since fun, friendship, family and fellowship are characteristic of Rotarians, you will have a chance to visit with fellow Rotarians and break bread together with them at home.

Be a part of this unrivalled experience. Come meet, interact, learn and share with like-minded people during the DisCon 2020.
