As the List Moderator and the NID Trip Co-Leaders, we will post comprehensive and relevant information regarding the 2013 NID Trip - which is why it is so important to have signed up. Thus as a group list member, you will receive news about the evolving itinerary, lists of what to bring, information about when to process your India visa, details on where to find a list of suggested vaccinations, etc.


This is our third NID experience and we have been in ongoing communications with several important stakeholders including Carol Pandak and her team at Rotary International; Robert Hall, Zone 34 Gates Challenge Grant Chair; District leadership; the Rotary PolioPlus office in Delhi, India; and the Rotarians in Chandigarh, India to put together what will certainly be an amazing and memorable NID experience.
