District 9 Conference
October 6-8, 2023
Burbank Airport Marriott
Burbank, CA



Zontians have been striving for women’s rights for 104 years and this is possible because we work together and share ideas!  So, it is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 2023 District 9 Conference in beautiful Burbank, California.


We encourage everyone to arrive on October 5 for the opportunity to tour the Burbank area and attend Thursday evening festivities. For more information, see the conference schedule here.


The Conference Committee, chaired by Laura Gordon, has worked for months to create a conference with the theme, Together Everyone Achieves More. As we know, working as a TEAM is always a necessity to have a successful club.  We will have a variety of presentations, celebrations, and plenty of opportunities to learn about and from each other as members.

In addition, we will continue the 85th annual celebration of the Amelia Earhart fellowship program with Past International President Sharon Langenbeck and Dr. Andrea Ghez, professor of physics and astronomy at UCLA and a Nobel Prize winner for her work on black holes. 

We look forward to seeing everyone in Burbank!  Let’s learn together and Build a Better World for Women and Girls.
