Interna-tional Director Carolyn Messier conducted the first seminar. The focus of this seminar was ongrowing our local clubs in the 21st Century. Her presentation focused on the need to bring morewomen into the clubs and to consider branch clubs or other means of accommodating the busyschedules of potential new members. The second seminar was about two types of vision screen-ing equipment that District 29-I is considering purchasing. Attendees were able to see videos ofthe new equipment in action. It was very impressive and should allow our clubs to provide evenbetter vision screening services to those who need it. The conference ended with the banquet.International Director Messier delivered the keynote address.
