It’s TLC Time!  Training for Leaders of Clubs!  And this year, we are combining the training for all clubs on Mainland Nova Scotia in a single Mini-Conference event in Halifax! 

More sharing.  More learning.  More fun.

Featuring Special Guest Facilitators, RI Director Jeffry Cadorette and Rotary Foundation’s Carolyn Ferguson

Come and experience our RED talks - that's Rotary - Engagement - Diversity.  A couple of the dynamic speakers you will hear are being revealed this week...

Dr. Sean Myles: Grew up in Fredericton, New Brunswick and spent a year in a small town in Switzerland 25 years ago as a Rotary Exchange student. It was during his Rotary exchange year that he developed a love of European food and culture. His passion for food and agriculture eventually led him back to Nova Scotia where he is now a Professor in the Faculty of Agriculture at Dalhousie University.  He leads a research team in the Annapolis valley that is figuring out how to breed new apple varieties that are tasty and require less chemical input to grow. He is also the co-founder of the Annapolis Cider Company.

Becoming Purpose Driven: How a Rotary Exchange Year transformed my life. 

Dr. Noni MacDonald, Order of Canada and Order of Nova Scotia, former Dean of Medicine and currently professor of Pediatrics at Dalhousie University.  

Rotary and Micro-Research - it may be small, but the impact is huge!  

Prof. David Divine, Footprints Life Coaching, Social Worker and former Chair in Black Canadian Studies at Dalhousie University.
