World Water Summit 12



Event cancelled
As the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to spread, Rotary International has made the difficult decision to cancel its 2020 international convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, June 6-10, 2020.   This also includes the 5 June 2020, Pre-Convention Presidential Conference being held in collaboration with ESRAG and WASRAG.
This decision was not taken lightly, and a great deal of time, energy, and analysis went into making it. Following the guidance of the world’s most trusted sources, including the World Health Organization and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, all options and potential alternatives were carefully considered. In the end, without confidence in our ability to protect convention-goers and the public from the risk of COVID-19, nor concrete predictions as to when restrictions on travel to the United States will be lifted, cancellation became the responsible choice.
By canceling our event, we will help mitigate the number of cases in the short term to allow our health systems to respond most effectively.  Just as Rotary International intends, we will refund all registrations. You should see a full refund of your registration fee, $125.00, no later than April 30, 2020.  Look for a refund from Water & Sanitation Rotary Group on your credit card statement.  For anyone with general questions about the RI Convention, please go to
Thank you for your ongoing interest in WASRAG and your commitment to further developing your knowledge and expertise.  While, at this time, we won’t be able to meet in-person, we look forward to finding other ways to celebrate our work together.  If you have any questions or concerns regarding your refund please contact,
Kind regards,
Mike Webb
