The 2019 Assembly will be held in Waterton, Alberta on September 13 through 15. The Organizing Committee for the Waterton-Glacier International Peace Park Association’s (WGIPPA) 87th Assembly is composed of members of Rotaract and the Rotary Clubs of Lethbridge. Tentative Schedule Friday, September 13 will include the annual golf tournament in the afternoon, as well as, the WGIPPA Board of Directors meeting. A community work project for attending Rotarians and their families is still in the planning stage.
It gives us great pleasure to announce that Mr. Al Jubitz, co-founder of the Rotary Action Group for Peace, will be the keynote speaker for this 87th Assembly.
Mr. Jubitz is the Co-Founder of the Rotary Action Group for Peace and currently its Treasurer and Honorary Chair.
He is a member of the Rotary Club of Portland in District 5100, and was president of the club in 2002 - 2003.
Al believes that Rotary is uniquely capable of turning the world toward nonviolent conflict resolution, ultimately leading to a world beyond war. To that end, he submitted the application for the Rotarian Action Group for Peace to Rotary International.
Al has been invited to speak at more than 60 Rotary clubs, conferences and community events over the last four years to share his vision that peace is possible and that Rotarians can play a leading role.
The evening offers fantastic entertainment provided by Banff National Park-based trio “The Wardens” Scott Ward, Bradley Bischoff and Ray Schmidt
To date the venues have been retained for both the Assembly (Waterton Lakes Community Association Centre) and the YEX program (Camp Columbus). The YEX program will again be coordinated by the University of Lethbridge Rotaract Club.
