Let's come together in binghamton

We hope all members of the future CNY Rotary districts have planned to join us for our joint conference April 26-28, 2024 at the DoubleTree in Binghamton, NY. Dynamic speakers, breakouts that will inspire action, and a lot of fellowship will make it a worthwhile way to spend a weekend immersed in Rotary. We will celebrate our clubs, learn about new ways to serve, better understand our impact around the world, and look to the future of our region.
Registration is now closed and we look forward to seeing you there!

Friday Evening Kick-Off

We hope you will be able to make plans to arrive in time to check in, get settled and explore our spacious venue before we start the evening. It will include a welcome dinner and opening talk from our RI Rep Vicki Puliz.
The evening will end with a competitive CNY Cabaret, featuring talents from our members and exchange students!

Saturday Festivities

This will be a day of sharing to learn more about what we are doing now and what we can do through service. Enjoy fellowship over meals, spend time in the House of Friendship, learn something new in a break out, and get to mingle with Youth Exchange students. Break out sessions will include both Rotary and non-Rotary topics!
