2017 North American Inter-District Meeting
2 – 4 June 2017

Washington, D.C.

Dear Zontians,
Join us at the 2017 North American Inter-District Meeting in the Washington, D.C. area from 2-4 June 2017 at the four star Hilton McLean Tysons Corner Hotel. The theme of this year’s meeting is “Be Part of Zonta ACTION”.


On Friday, 2 June, we will travel to Washington, D.C. by train to advocate for Zonta’s issues on Capitol Hill. Zontians will meet at the U.S. Capitol, be briefed by a member of the International Advocacy Committee, then visit a state senator or congressman’s office to advocate for Zonta issues. There will be no cost for the event, but each participant will be responsible for providing their own transportation and lunch. There is a complimentary shuttle from the hotel to the Silver Line metro station, which is one mile from the hotel.


Friday evening will include a buffet and roundtable discussions with experts on various Zonta topics. Saturday will feature a general session, workshops, and lunch and dinner, both with speakers. There will be more workshops on Sunday morning followed by brunch and a recap of all the information presented. (See workshop information below.)


International President Sonja Hönig Schough will participate the North American Inter-District Meeting then hold an International Board Meeting in the hotel following our meeting.


This is an opportunity for you to meet with state representatives; talk with Zonta International’s leadership; learn new information on advocacy, leadership, membership and service; spend time with Zontians from all over the United States and Canada, and perhaps spend a little time shopping at the nearby Tysons Corner Shopping Centers, two of the major shopping centers of Northern Virginia.


Early registration will begin 1 January and PayPal will be available to accommodate credit cards on the 2017 NAIDM website. The website,  will be online in December and you can view our comprehensive program, details of our Capitol Hill Day, hotel information and other NAIDM information.


Early registration, from 1 January to 1 March will be $220.00; standard registration will be from 2 March to 1 May and will cost $235.00, and late registration begins on 2 May and will cost $250.00. The registration fee includes the program as well as Friday night appetizers, Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday brunch. Hotel rooms will cost $109.00 a night from 31 May – 6 June, giving you a place to stay if you decide to do a little touring of the U.S. Capitol either before or after the event. The hotel is conveniently located 13 miles from Washington Dulles airport.
