WELCOME MESSAGE

Dear Friends,

The Turkish Inner Wheel members are honoured to invite you all to the 15th IIW Convention to be held during 17/21 April 2012, in Istanbul, a city that spans two continents, Asia and Europe, a metropole of more than 2000 years that has served as Capital to three empires, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman. Here you will find the ancient and the modern, the natural beauty, and what men, throughout centuries, have built up to a fascinating, surprising city that lives 24 hours!

While we work profoundly to modify and strengthen our Constitution and our rules, you will have the opportunity to explore this enchanting city. We have organized daily tours, pre & post convention tours for you to discover the country's immense archeological heritage and historical treasures, and the beauty of the land. We are also planning for golf, backgammon tournaments, and Rotary meetings for accompanying spouses and friends.

We are all part of a movement that transcends all differences of race, colour, or creed of beliefs and cultures, and builds bridges of friendship, and fellowship, and strives for world understanding and peace. To touch the lives of people less fortunate than ourselves, underpriviliged, undernourished, uneducated, exposed to natural disasters and preventable diseases, and without adequate food and water, we need MORE WILLING HANDS, MORE CARING HEARTS, AND MORE INQUIRING MINDS! Let us come together to discover new ways to serve!..

Above all, most important of all, the Convention will give us the chance to meet old friends, make new friends, and build up our fellowship to realize our mutual objectives.

We can assure you that our committee is working hard to give you the best for your expectations and your aspirations, and a TASTE of TURKISH HOSPITALITY.

We promise you a Convention to remember! We are looking forward to welcoming you ALL!

Convention Coordinator
