2022 Yas Island Rotary Institute

Dear Rotarians and friends,

Greetings to all!

“Al Majlis” 2022 Rotary Institute will be held at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Yas Conference Centre at Yas Marina Circuit has amazing facilities, which will provide unique experience to all participants. The Yas Marina Circuit is one of the newer circuits in the world which is also currently featuring the Formula 1 calendar. One of the awesome features of the entire area is W Hotel Abu Dhabi, which will be the Official Institute Hotel where several events will be held.

W Abu Dhabi is built above the motor track, changes colors at night and gives an outstanding experience to all. It is situated just next to a Marina, which is yet another feature enthralling all. There are numerous hotels around the Yas Marina Circuit which have also provided most attractive rates.

There are more than a dozen exciting facilities within the vicinity, known for quality recreation and entertainment. These include Ferrari World, Yas Waterworld, Warner Brothers World, Yas Links Golf Course, Yas Kartzone , Yas Mall and the most scintillating beaches.

This will be the first in-person Institute for Zones 1B, 9 & 10 since 2019, and the Organizing Committee under the Chairmanship of PDG Muhammad Iqbal Qureshi has planned a treat for all.

The Pre-Institute programs, including the Governors-elect Training Seminar (GETS), Governors-nominee Training Seminar (GNTS), District Trainer Seminar (DTS) and the Regional Rotary Foundation Seminar (RRFS), will be a different experience for all. The Golf Tournament will have a taste of its own with unique experience of greens combined with scenic waterfront views around.

The post COVID situation has given us a new direction of thinking and we have planned to invite some most outstanding speakers who will guide our thoughts for a better Rotary in years to come.

2022-23 Rotary International President Jennifer Jones will be present on the occasion. Indeed, it will be a unique opportunity for all to personally meet the first ever woman leader of the Rotary world.

I am certain the 2022 Rotary Institute will be a life-time experience for all.

Khush Amdeed , Ahlan Wa Sahlan and Welcome to Al Majlis at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, UAE between 2-4 December 2022.
