Our District’s Centennial Biennium

Empowering Women

A central idea that allows for honoring the past

while… focusing our actions on Zonta’s future

Where it all began

During this Zonta biennium our District will be brainstorming and reaching out to our clubs to encourage development & implementation of celebrations that honour and empower our members, the women around us, and women globally.

Our District’s Centennial Project


The Traveling Flag Project


The traveling flag will move through our district’s six areas visiting each of the 35 clubs during this biennium. Club presidents will sign the flag along with the D4 Elected Officers. Along the journey the flag will rest at each of the three 2019 Area Workshops (Jamestown, NY, Kitchener, ON and Kenmore, NY), and in Buffalo during the D4 Conference from September 26 – 29th, 2019.  It will then resume its travel through the district until being brought to the 65th Zonta International Convention in Chicago, MO in June 2020.
