Fall 2020 Virtual Special Called Convention and District-Wide Meeting

Our Fall Virtual 2020 NCDE District-Wide meeting and Special Called Convention will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2020 beginning at 10 AM till 12:00 PM. Join us as we finish our Convention Elections for Governor-Elect and Area Directors during the Special Called Convention. Civitan International President Frank Kelley will join us to provide remarks and install our newly elected district officers. We will continue with our regular district-wide meeting as we celebrate with our district project partners from Boys and Girls Homes NC, Duke Child Development Center and Special Olympics NC, to honor individual clubs for their service and support. Plan now to join fellow district Civitans to learn about and support each other in our community and district efforts!
