Every year, each Rotary International Director convenes a meeting of senior leaders in their Zone. This event, known as an Institute, provides an opportunity for past, present and incoming Rotary officers to share information, ideas and resources, build new connections and reacquaint with old friends, and exchange ideas about Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation.
A more recently added event, the Future Leaders Seminar, open to any Rotarian wanting to learn more about Rotary from a leadership perspective, also takes place in conjunction with Institute. 
The combined New Zealand event in 2017 will be known as the Rotary Symposium and this year it’s doors will open to all Rotarians.
The 2017 Symposium will take place from Friday 8 September through Sunday 10 September and will be preceded by pre-Institute events including Governor-Elect and Governor-Nominee training, Governors Forum and a joint Rotary meeting hosted by the Rotary Club of St John’s.


Dress code for Symposium is ‘smart casual’. Feel free to dress to the theme of ‘Be the Future’ for the Symposium Dinner at the Waipuna Hotel on Saturday night.
