In October, the Rotaract Club of Sandy Bay will be hosting the 6th Australian Rotaract Conference, in Hobart. The theme for this year’s conference (I-C-E) draws inspiration from the Aurora Australis icebreaker, which can often be seen in port when it is not navigating the southern ocean to and from Antarctica.
Events will kick off on the evening of the 9th of October with a pre-conference dinner and twilight yachting experience. The Derwent is a central feature of Hobart, and there is no better way to see it than seeing it from the water. Board a yacht and experience what it is like to sail the same waters as those finishing the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race – just don’t fall in, the water is cold down here!
The conference itself runs on the 10th and 11th – we’ve arranged a heap of exciting speakers and workshops, centred on the I-C-E theme. The theme for this year is to Inspire, Connect and Experience – We hope to inspire and empower people in both their personal and professional lives by providing a platform for professional development. There will be four streams of workshops available: Life Balance, Communication, Vocational Influence, and Rotaract Networking. I personally can’t wait to learn some effective goal setting techniques from the lovely Johanna Parker.
With only 3 Rotaract clubs in Tasmania, this conference is a fantastic opportunity for us to connect with ‘mainland’ Rotaractors and show off our beautiful state. There will be the opportunity for delegates to explore the Hobart surrounds and experience the Tasmanian culture by perusing the local Salamanca Markets and the Museum of Old and New Art (the infamous MONA!). There will also be an official conference dinner on the night of the 10th on the waterfront which will gives us all the chance to frock up, suit up and let our hair down.
