Rotary Fellowships are international groups that share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends around the world, explore a hobby or profession, and enhance your Rotary experience.
Learn more about a few of the fellowships through fun informational sessions, then continue the conversation at their booths in the House of Friendship. Space is limited, so sign up early to secure your spot. Signups will be available through the convention platform.
