Hospitality Suite Registration Form

Deadline: March 15, 2021

Club Hospitality Suites are a time when we rekindle friendships; many of these friendships have been built over several years of conferences. Then, there will be new and instant friendships made. We exchange Rotary experiences of how to build clubs, how to maintain enthusiasm and how to bounce back from unforeseen drops in memberships. Each hospitality suite is a melting pot of personalities, educational levels, cultures, and shared successes and failures.

Our virtual conference platform is very user friendly and interactive. Club Hospitality Suites will be held on Friday, April 23 6:00PM-7:00PM and Saturday, April 24 6:15PM-7:00PM.

You will need a Zoom account to host a Hospitality Suite, a free account will allow up to 40 minutes, but for more than 40 minutes, a paid Zoom account is needed.

There is no charge to have a Club Hospitality Suite- just click on the link above to register!  After registering, you will be sent instructions for setting up and running your Club Hospitality Suite, which will be listed in the online Conference Agenda for others to "attend".

 

Beach Bash     

Join Gainesville Rotarian “Chef Mike” and Gary Black, the Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture, in the Georgia Grown Kitchen as they cook a traditional Low Country Boil. We’re bringing the outdoor low country seafood boil experience inside and sizing it for the stove top and a meal for two (or a few additional people)!

Focusing on locally sourced food, this meal is one that that will satisfy your palate while you learn more about the history of the dish and the farmers and fishermen who supply the ingredients.

Below is a link to an article on the history of this culturally important cooking tradition and a detailed list of ingredients and equipment needed to prepare everything in your home kitchen so that you can be ready to cook along with Mike and Gary when “The Beach Bash” is broadcast virtual live on Saturday, April 24 from 5:30-6:15 PM.

For those who are allergic to shrimp or shellfish, optional ingredients will be suggested that allow you to still enjoy the Low Country Boil experience.
