2020 Zonta International District 16 Area Meetings

With the outbreak of the global COVID-19 pandemic in New Zealand in March 2020 District 16 made the decision to cancel the Area Meetings planned for Area 1, 2, 3 and 5. We were grateful that we were able to hold the Area 4 Meeting, hosted by the Area 4 Director and the Zonta Club of Rotorua, in Rotorua on Sunday 15 March 2020. The meeting was well attended and we’ve received positive feedback both on the information presented and the opportunity for the five Clubs from across Area 4 (Hamilton-Waikato, Tauranga, Thames Valley, Whakatane and Rotorua) to share stories and engage in the Membership and Service-in-Action workshops.

To ensure you all have access to this information we have loaded all the presentations and videos onto the District 16 website. We’d encourage individual members to review the information or you might like to show one of the presentations or videos ay one of your upcoming ‘virtual’ Club meetings

The theme for our 2020 Area Meetings was ‘Reflecting our Communities’ and the sessions explored ways for our Zonta clubs and members to reflect the diversity of our communities.
