This year's event is going to be a real country affair, being held at Tenterfield on 29 to 31 March 2020! 
 
Go to the Conference Website http://www.rotary9640conference.org.au and check out what's happening.  There you find the program, a brief summary of all the Keynote Speakers, and of course you can register.  But of course, one of the big attractions of attending a conference is always the deep feeling of Rotary Fellowship. Being in the country, formalities will be kept to a minimum. You have an opportunity to meet, eat and drink with other Rotarians and their partners from other places in the District, you'll meet overseas people, Exchange Students.

As an adult, Bernie went to the Northern Territory to become a jackaroo. While working on vast cattle properties, he picked up skills as a tracker from some of his Aboriginal co-workers.
 
Later, Bernie got into youth work, and today he runs a youth service in Armidale, Northern NSW. At BackTrack Youthworks Bernie welcomes kids who are a bit like his former self. He meets teenagers falling into a life of petty crime, and sometimes incarceration. As soon as they show up, they’re given full responsibility for a working dog....
