Message from District 10 Governor Barbara Yoder


A heartfelt thank you to all who attended the 69th District Conference last month in Oklahoma City. More thanks to Zonta Club of Central Oklahoma for their gracious hospitality and perfect logistics at every point of the event. From lip sync to closing banquet this was a heroic effort and the board and guest were enchanted! Our special guest, International Representative Lydia Chaillou was delightful. We were pleased to have her join our board and business meetings. Ms. Chaillou installed our new district officers. She was a good sport too…her painting from the Friday event sold to benefit the ZI auction!

Some of the highlights of this conference were seeing again our fine district traditions such as club roll calls for pledges and elections for the 2018-20 biennium. These traditions included the flag presentation by the Zonta Club of West Hidalgo County and other Zontians as flag carriers. We had wonderful speakers at keynote and both luncheons. We should be proud as Zonta members that our mission and vision were celebrated at every turn of the four business sessions.

Another highlight of the conference was the fine membership presentation and workshop by Lt. Governor Sheryl Flanagin. Not only did she highlight some of our district best practices with 3 club representatives but also gave a wonderful summary of the tools available from ZI. This tool box can be found by searching the Global Membership Drive.

A big thanks to International President Sonja Honig Schough for outlining some constants for each district conference worldwide. Each conference was asked to view her video message, a membership message, a Centennial Endowment message and an invite to convention in Yokohama Japan. Conference attendees enjoyed these professional videos and are encouraged to show them at their club meetings as well. Conference materials will be posted on the district web site. All that attended the conference need to tell others in their club the new ideas and thought. Let’s use this as an opportunity to revive us in service and advocacy!

Yours in Zonta,
Barbara Yoder
Governor, District 10
