District 13 Conference in Reykjavík
Zonta International District 13 conference was held in Reykjavík on September 14th – 17th. 2017.
Members from the district had the opportunity to exchange views and opinions, experience and knowledge and discuss important issues. This was an excellent opportunity to inspire and get inspired for Zonta´s continuous quest to improve and empower women and an inspiration to take back to the clubs in the four countries.
The theme for the conference was complementary to the regular District meeting activities. This theme was “Women on the move”, and refered to the massive and diverse issues raised by the unprecedented migration of people, not the least women and children, in our part of the world. This relates to asylum seekers, fugitives fleeing civil war and other immigrants.
Reykjavík and Iceland are interesting to visit and after the conference the delegates did some sightseeing which had been organized by local Zontians.

The latest D-13 events of the 2014-16 biennium took place during the International Convention in Nice. Saturday morning we started by having a district meeting. Almost all D 13 participants attended. The agenda was very tight, however we found time to say hello to incoming Governor Ingibjörg and the 2016-18 board. Many D-13 members were photographed after the last business session. We finished convention with a happy hour in the Park before Galla Dinner and Installation Ceremony. It was e relaxed hour with wine, small talk, songs, goodbyes to the outgoing board and reassurances to meet again in Reykjavik in September 1917 for the next D-13 conference.”
