We are disappointed to advise that the upcoming Interact International Convention to be held in Toronto on 21 June 2018 is unable to go ahead.
Rotary International has been strengthening its policies around events with minors, enhancing the safety requirements to ensure those under 18 are well protected while in the care of Rotary. Unfortunately, we were only recently advised by Rotary International of some of these additional requirements and while we have been working hard to resolve these concerns, Rotary International has requested we cancel this year’s event.
We’re working to see how we can best work with Rotary International in the future and hope that this event will be able to continue in Hamburg, Germany, as we strongly believe there is a place for Interactors to have their own conference at the annual Rotary International Convention.
If you had registered for the event, your payment for this event has been refunded and will return to your payment method within the next 14 days. We recognize that many of you may have already booked non-refundable travel or/and accommodations and reassure you that there are many other wonderful events to get involved with as part of the Rotary International Convention. We recommend registering for the Rotaract Preconvention happening Friday, June 22 and Saturday, June 23 at riconvention.org. The event is a great opportunity to meet other young leaders from around the world. Many our Interact Convention organising committee will be there and would love to meet you. We’re also keen to get a group photo of all the Interactors who attend! We thank you for your understanding and support and hope to see you in Toronto.
Yours in service,
2018 Interact International Convention Planning Committee
