Rotary International Convention - Houston - June 2022
On behalf of the Host Organization Committee, we cannot wait to welcome Rotarians and guests to Houston and the great State of Texas for the 2022 Rotary International Convention.  The saying goes that everything is “Bigger”, “Better” and “Friendlier” in Texas, and the goal of the Houston Host Organization Committee is to have each of you feel that every moment as our guest while in Houston! From the humble beginnings of this great city, Houston has been led by “People of Action” who have taken this City to great heights including, to the moon and back.

Information regarding IFMR and the Houston 2022 convention

 

You are invited to join IFMR-NA members and other IFMR international visitors in Houston June 2022 for the Rotary International Convention.

What we know so far

  • The convention is scheduled for June 4-8 in Houston Texas.  See below for link to register.

  • IFMR-NA Regional Directors will be planning and/or leading and/or facilitating motorcycle rides from their region to Houston.  Please contact your Regional Director if you would like to join the ride, or, better yet, assist in the planning and implementation of the ride.  See below for contact information.

  • Thanks to our local member, Ute Schneider, we have blocked rooms at a nearby hotel specifically for all IFMR members.  It is the Wingate (by Wyndham) Houston near NRG Park\Medical Center, 8600 Kirby Drive, Houston, TX 77054. The property is gated and has security, so our motorcycles will be safe.  It is also near public transportation which will take you to the convention center, if you prefer to NOT ride your motorcycle in big cities like Houston.  See below for link to register at the hotel with our very special rate of USD 109.00 including breakfast plus taxes and fees. 

  • On Friday June 3, 2022 at 9.00 am we will have an official IFMR picture appointment in front the convention center. Subject to confirmation by RI.

  • After the convention, there will be a 3 day IFMR ride to the “Hill Country” in Texas.  As soon we sign the contract with a Hotel more details will follow.

  • IFMR-NA will have a booth in the House of Friendship.  President Larie Trippet will be looking for volunteers to staff the booth.  Please consider volunteering.  A volunteer sign up process will be communicated when we get closer to the convention.

  • President Larie will be creating a custom distribution list for Houston-specific communication.  If you are 1) certain you are attending, or, 2) considering attending, or, 3) want to stay in the loop, please email Larie at   larie@trippet2.com  and ask to be placed on that unique distribution list.

  • We are going to have a LOT of fun!!!!

 

What is tentative or still in the planning phase:

  • Plan to arrive in Houston no later than the evening of Thursday June 2.  Some activities may be planned for Friday June 3.

  • Potentially, a police-escorted ride from the IFMR hotel to the convention center on Friday June 3.

  • Still thinking about a gathering/social event/dinner for all IFMR members.

  • Designing a special commemorative T-shirt.
