2021 Singapore Rotary Institute

Dear Rotarians and friends,

Welcome to the 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute.

The 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute will be taking place during December 3-5, 2021. This annual event brings together past, present and future district governors and senior leaders from Zones 1B, 9 & 10 to share information and exchange ideas about Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation (TRF), and build new connections and fortify old ones. It is also a golden opportunity for all Rotarians to catch up with Rotary friends from various regions.

Rotary prioritises the safety and health of our participants, and the RI Board has been continuously assessing local and global health conditions when making decisions about Rotarians gathering around the world. Based on a thorough analysis of a variety of factors, and in sync with the RI Board’s policies, the organising committee of the 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute has decided to conduct the 2021 Rotary Institute for Zones 1B, 9, 10 virtually.

I believe the committee’s decision is the best one based on current conditions, though I understand that you may be disappointed not being able to gather in Singapore. I personally assure you that the Institute will be a high quality Rotary experience connecting Rotary leaders and rotarians virtually. The programme will be robust and will include updates on Rotary programmes, initiatives, and inspirational speakers from the world over.

As Convenor of the 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute for Zones 1B, 9 and 10, I would like to express my sincerest welcome to all of you.

The 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute comes with a three-day program designed to inspire and energise you. The event will have all the best elements of the face to face conference – you can listen to great speakers, ask questions, network with Rotarian friends (old and new) – all from the comfort of your home or in a shared space with other Rotarians and friends.

Registration fees for the Institute to be held during December 3-5, 2021 and the Regional Rotary Foundation Seminar (RRFS) have been waived.

Registering for the Institute will give you:

  • Access to passcode for the Institute’s virtual meeting space.
  • Certification that you attended the 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute.

There are some great reasons to attend this year’s event:

  • learn new ways to increase our impact, expand our reach, increase participant engagement and increase our ability to adapt from Rotary’s senior leaders
  • meet some of our Rotary heroes – dedicating their lives to making a positive difference
  • connect with Rotary friends throughout the Zones 1B, 9 and 10, old and new
  • share the ‘big picture’ of Rotary impact with your newer members
  • be inspired to deepen your engagement and make an even greater difference through Rotary.

This event will bring together the best of Rotary in one place over one weekend, December 3-5, 2021 from 7:30 – 10:00 PM Singapore time.

I have full confidence that the Organising Committee, chaired by PDG Chew Ghim Bok, 2021-24 Rotary Coordinator Region 12, will have an interesting program for you.

I look forward to your participation at the Institute on the virtual platform.

Enjoy the 2021 Singapore Rotary Institute from the comfort and safety of your home or office. Register now at www.2021singaporerotaryinstitute.org.
