This year's District Conference is a joint conference being co-hosted by Districts 5040 & 5050 in Whistler B.C. with the opening ceremony held on Friday, May 19th 2006.

Many Rotarians from Vancouver Centennial attended the full 4-day conference with a few members attending just the District Governors Gala Dinner on Saturday, together with over 600 other Rotarians and spouses from the two districts.

Secretary, Richard Lin who attended the 4-day conference was especially impressed by the opening ceremony, Youth Exchange Flag Ceremony. In addition, he also shared with club members what he has learned during the conference specifically the National Immunization Days, the Clean Water projects and the new police strategy for fighting crime through preventative measure and education as presented by the Richmond RCMP. Director Joanne Cheng also shared her experience at the conference and mentioned that she was emotionally touched by the keynote speaker, Mr. John Furlong, CEO of VANOC.  President Harrison Lin concluded the meeting by suggesting that the club should consider the RI Wheelchair project in 2006-07 and urged all Rotarians to sign up for the 2007 District Conference in Kelowna, B.C.
