District 14 Conference 2023 Review
The Zonta District 14 Conference started on Friday with a typical Heurigen evening at Fahrgassl-Huber.
The business sessions on Saturday and Sunday were held in the beautiful Raiffeisen Bank International Conference Venue. We started with the flag parade where the flags of the different countries of District 14 were shown. After that we heard a greeting from Doris Schmidauer, consultant, motivator and wife of Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen.

After the end of Business Sessions 1 and 2 and the welcoming of the newly elected board, we all joined together for a Zonta Says No action. All participants tied orange ribbons with the Zonta logo and the national hotline number on the fences in the Vienna City Park. Dinner was served in the beautiful and historic Salonplafond of the MAK Museum. It was not only a great fun with an American auction to benefit the Zonta Foundation for Woman, but we also awarded the 2023 JMK Women in Business Scholarship, Rosanna Pottmann. An inspiring young woman who shared her story in a short interview.
