RI Convention in Honolulu - cancelled



It is with sadness that I have to inform you that the Rotary International Convention in Honolulu, 6-10 June, has been cancelled due to the threat from the COVID-19 virus.  This decision has been taken by RI in the interest of the health and safety of its members and of the general public.

Information on the cancellation and the method to obtain Registration refunds is available on

This is very unfortunate, but completely understandable.  It means that, as far as IYFR is concerned, the functions organized during the Convention, the ‘Meet and Greet’ and ‘Gala Dinner’ have been cancelled and the ‘Post Convention Cruise’ following the Convention has also been cancelled.   Refunds will be made to those who have already sent payment.

Hotel reservations made at the Ala Moana Hotel, through the IYFR link, for the PCC have also been cancelled.  However, other hotel reservations made by individual members, using other booking sites, must be cancelled by the individual members.

I will contact you again shortly with details of how we will organize an ‘AGM’.

I will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
