Frequently Asked Questions


General Questions


What is the attire for the weekend?

Casual.  This is a lakeside resort in the San Bernardino Mountains.  Weather is unpredictable but the conference takes place the second week of May.  Nights are cool- bring a warm jacket. Saturday Night is a dinner dance- be comfortable.

Do I need to attend all 4 days?

You may want to come up for fun for all 4 days- a mini staycation.   We'd love to see you as much as we can but attendance at the events is not required.   You won't want to miss the Governor's Ball if you can make it on Saturday- that's where the Governor's Annual Awards are given to Rotary clubs and individuals.

May I come Friday Night and Saturday only? 

Yes.  We hope all Rotarians come up for the legendary Friday Night Hospitality in which District 5280 clubs bring delicious appetizers to share their club culture and unique personalities.

Are there Free Events?

Yes.  Service Projects and informational Sessions are free.  And the big bonus is the Friday Night Hospitality for food and fellowship.

Who attends the Annual Rotary District 5280 Conference?

District Rotarians and their guests from 61 clubs throughout Los Angeles.

Do I need to be vaccinated in order to attend? 

Yes. All attendees must be fully vaccinated.

Why should I attend?

After 2 years, we'll be in-person at last!  To be able to get together in a beautiful environment.  Meet up with old friends and make new ones as we celebrate accomplishments during our Rotary year, strengthen our connections to each other, individual and global visions, in our clubs and within our fantastic District 5280.

How many days is the conference?

The conference is 4 days but you can come up for only a part of the conference or stay for a long weekend.  You choose.

Problems booking hotel reservations?

There should be ample rooms but sometimes technical issues arise. If you're having difficulty booking online or there appears to be no inventory of rooms, call the Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa at (800) 800-6792  and make clear that you are with the Los Angeles Rotary group for May 12-15, 2022 in Lake Arrowhead, CA. If that does not resolve your issue, please email the district at


If you've registered but have not reserved your room yet, please note that room availability and rates are only guaranteed through April 20. Rooms may be available after that date but the rate almost certainly will increase significantly.
