Held in Bangkok, Thailand from May 6 to 9, this year's event marked the 103rd convention and raised over $2 million to contribute towards the eradication of polio.
"You know, we talk a lot about how technology is making the world smaller these days, and how Rotary is more international than ever, but nothing brings those roots home quite like a Rotary Convention," Rotary International president Kalyan Banerjee said in his closing speech on May 9.
The nonprofit organisation is dedicated to sharing the 2012 convention experience with those around the world. A range of videos, reports and speeches from the event have been made available online so that everyone can access the valuable information and inspiration shared during the three day convention.
Back home in Australia, the local Rotary has been busy in Wagga over the weekend. According to an article by the Daily Advertiser on May 21, over $30,000 was raised during the annual Rotary book fair held in the Kyeamba Smith Hall.
