We are typically finished no later than 8:30 pm. Meetings with high-profile speakers are "open" to "Friends of Zonta" and members of other women's groups in the area.

Can My Spouse Attend the Events?

Yes! Although Zonta is a women's organization, we welcome guests and partners to most of our planned events.

In addition, there are opportunities to attend one-day annual workshops, a two-day biennial conference or seminar and a week-long biennial international convention. At the Zonta Club of Halifax, the monthly General Meeting usually lasts somewhere between two and three hours, depending on whether there is a speaker. Committee meetings last a similar amount of time.
