News & Events

District 27 organizes and participates in various events. The biennial District 27 Conference and the biennial Zonta International Convention are the most well-known. We make decisive decisions and look ahead to the following years during these events. We do this in a pleasant setting, where the joy of meeting other Zontians also plays an important role.

Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for the following events. We would love to have you there.
