Kia ora koutou,


All Rotarians, Rotaractors, Friends of Rotary, prospective members and

their partners are invited to attend our very first District 9999 Conference

to be held in Oamaru over the weekend 24-26 March 2023.

We are lining up a range of inspiring speakers to share remarkable life

journeys, insights, and experiences in line with our Conference


Imagine: Embracing diversity

The Oamaru community is very supportive of Rotary and there is no

better place to catch up with old friends, find collaborative project

partners and support our Rotary International World President Jennifer Jones’s theme of ‘Imagine Rotary’. Join Rotarians from around the district to explore Oamaru, ride your bike or walk the Alps 2 Ocean Cycle Trail®. We look forward to you all joining us to celebrate coming together as one Rotary district in the South Island.

Jan Boustead

Rotary District 9999

Governor 2022-2023



Lincoln Rotarians are extremely proud District Governor Jan Boustead is entrusted with this prestigious leadership role. It is a privilege as a club to acknowledge her achievement and host fellow District 9999 Rotarians for the 2023 Conference in Oamaru.

In writing this I considered our ever changing diversity of Rotary. Since 1981 Rotary Clubs and Rotarians of Districts 9970 & 9980 have been creating lasting change in their communities and across the globe. The first conference for the new District 9999 will be the time for celebrating past achievements of Districts 9970 & 9980, reconnecting with old friends and remembering life changing moments we created together. Our conference theme “Imagine Embracing Diversity” plans to showcase inspiring leaders from our community and encourage fresh perspectives, to lead us on into our bright new future as District 9999. I encourage you to fill out the registration form and come and join fellow Rotarians determined to make this an awesome celebration for the first year of a united District.
