April Update

I cannot believe we are entering the last few months of our Zonta year. It has been a busy March and April with our D4 Summits and preparing for our District Conference in September. I took a week off Zonta and travelled Costa Rica with my partner to hang out with birds. I’m the camera caddy; Mike’s the photographer!


  • Don’t forget District 4 Committees are continuing to expand. Send me an email if you’re interested in one!
  • Help the District prepare for the 2024-2026 budget by letting Lt. Governor, Jane Newman know of your club’s membership losses and additions. Our budget is based on the number of members as of June 1, 2023.
  • District and International dues are upon us. We have again streamlined the processing of District dues. D4 Treasurer, Nancy Peacock is available to help you! Remember, updating your club’s membership with International is online whether you pay online or by mail.
  • Please send your club’s notices, recognition, and success to D4 communications. I know ZI is also looking for clubs to “Share Your Story” under My Zonta on the ZI website.
  • I ask that clubs reframe from hosting club activities during our District 4 Conference. Especially since I expect you will be eager to attend this year after having a taste of our Summits! 😉 😉
