Yesterday we received great news! District 27 is immensely proud of Ute Scholz to be elected International President elect and Florence Fischer as International Director!
Congratulations to all Zontians taking up office on club, Area, District and international level. We wish you all good luck for the next biennium.
Watch the installation ceremony live via zoom on Friday 17th at 23:00 CET.
In February at the Governor's Orientation in Chicago, we were all looking forward to the Centennial Celebrations in Chicago.
Only a few weeks later Corona pandemic broke out and confinement paralyzed most of our social and professional lives. Many clubs ended the previous biennium without 'life' meeting and the cancellation of the Convention left an empty spot for many of us.
But, we are flexible and creative. The many days of confinement also created new opportunities.
Most of us discovered e-, Zoom-, Skype- and other meetings.
Many clubs managed to organize support for healthcare workers or victims of domestic violence.
The district developed a new way of communication via a Newsletter.
Today you receive the first issue of our District 27 Newsletter.
The purpose is to inform you on a quarterly basis about progress in reaching the 2020-2022 Biennial Goals, new posts on the D27 website and to gather information of the committees, the Foundation or campaigns such as 'Zonta says NO'.
Let us join forces and start this new biennium and centennium with renewed strength!
It seems our new ZI president was visionary in proposing the motto 'Changes, transitions & new opportunities'.
Let us, all together, develop these new opportunities!
Wishing a very nice summer to all zontians, although different than expected, and a strong start to all Zonta clubs.
