MC for the Conference - Val Sarah, Past International President of Zonta International

District Governor of District 16 in 1986-1988 (when it encompassed all of Australia and New Zealand) and a member of the Zonta International Board for 8 years from 1992, Val is known to Zontians all over the world from her time as Zonta International President for the 1998-2000 Zonta Biennium.
It was a momentous time, embracing the celebration of Zonta's 80th birthday in 1999, the end of a century and the dawn of a new millennium. During this time, emails revolutionised the way Zonta conducts business, manuals needed to be revised, a legislative awareness and advocacy program came into being and a history of the organisation was written as a prelude to the centenary of Zonta in 2019.
Val tells us she is honoured to have been invited to participate in the District 24 Conference, and is looking forward to renewing friendships and listening to Zontians with enthusiastic ideas to share!
