Another new committee to the CNY Rotary leadership structure is CNY Rotary Events. With our larger region, it will be even more important that we can connect to learn and celebrate in innovative ways. We are seeking members from across CNY Rotary to join this new committee in a variety of roles that range from being the overall chair to just helping with putting together one fun event. There will be a lot to do and, as we know all too well, many hands make light work! By having diversity in the members of this committee, we will be better able to identify opportunities (venues, events, places) all around the region.

Please check out the committee’s scope of work and current job openings below. Then use the form at the bottom of the page to contact us and let us know if you are interested in getting involved!

Committee’s Scope of Work

The CNY Rotary Events Committee is responsible for assisting with the planning of all CNY Rotary hosted events in our region. This can be done solely by the committee or in collaboration with other committees, such as Training (for District Training Assembly) or Foundation (for an annual gala or luncheon).

The committee chair is not necessarily chair of any individual event, but rather oversees that all events are supported by the committee.

This committee will work with Area Representatives to plan and execute the CNY Rotary President’s official area visits.

Committee members will facilitate in the planning process, including but not limited to finding venues, processing RFP’s, securing contracts (to be signed by the CNY Rotary President), and other necessary activities around executing the event, all led by the Events Committee Chair.

District Conference

This big annual event will be the biggest sub-committee as part of CNY Rotary Events.
