District Conference 2005 Kuantan

District 17 Conference was held at Kuantan Malaysia Garden Hotel on 16-18 September 2005. Zonta Club of Kuantan did a fantastic job of organizing and hosting all the Zonta clubs from Philippines, Thailand, Hong Kong, and Singapore. We had a wonderful time renewing old friendships and forging new ones.

The workshops on HIV/AIDS, on Stem Cell Research, and on Trafficking of Women were well attended. There were knowledgeable speakers, serious discussions, with many thought provoking questions raised.

We elected the next biennium (2006-2008) District Governor and her Board, as well as Area Directors from all six Areas in District 17. The next District Meeting in 2007 will be held at Ilocos Norte in Philippines, hosted by our sister clubs there.

Aside from club business, all participants were hosted to a wonderful visit of the Istana (Palace) of the Sultan of Pahang. We also enjoyed the shows put up by our sister clubs. For example, the Tahitian dance by the Philippines clubs was just awesome! Zonta Club of Singapore was represented by Esther Seet, Muriel Chee, Lena Chen, Rina Ham, and Mina Chan. The brave souls put up a line dance performance which was quite well received. In all, we had a great time!
