Local & International News
 
Rotary International has started what it is calling the People of Action Campaign where it is showing Rotarians doing what they have become known for; working together to make our communities better.
 
With that in mind, we would like to highlight some of the activities of the clubs and Rotarians in District 7820 by profiling our  People Of Action  on the front page of the District Website.  It is our plan to replaced the current top scrolling banner on the website with pictures of our Rotarians in action around the region or around the world.  To do that WE NEED YOUR HELP!
 
Please send Jim Goit (jbgoit@gmail.com) pictures of your club and members working on projects and we'll include them along with your club and project name in the next generation of the website masthead banner.
 
The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a series of one-day courses offered to help refine a Rotarian's leadership skills and increase their base of knowledge about Rotary.  Courses are fun, topical, interactive, and geared toward busy business, professional and community leaders who want to become more knowledgeable Rotarians and more effective leaders in their vocation and their Rotary club.  It is open to all Rotarians but is especially beneficial for newer Rotarians.
 
You can find out more about RLI and the various sessions by checking out our on line resources.  Experienced Rotarians are the leaders of the sessions and you will meet others from clubs all over the Atlantic region.  
 
The fall session of the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) will be held Oct 28, 2017 in Truro.   We are planning to offer all Parts of the training if enough Rotarians register for each.   On-line registration is available by clicking this link.  Don't delay as space is limited for each Part.
 
Participating in RLI has proven to be the defining moment for many Rotarians.  Join us in Truro.

Barry Rassin, of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, is the selection of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International for 2018-19. He will be declared the president-elect on 1 September if no challenging candidates have been suggested.

As president, Rassin aims to strengthen our public image and our use of digital tools to maximize Rotary’s reach.

“Those who know what good Rotary clubs do will want to be a part of it, and we must find new models for membership that allow all interested in our mission to participate,” he says. “With Rotary more in the public eye, we will attract more individuals who want to be part of and support a membership organization that accomplishes so much good around the world.”

 

Rotary International has announced that Mark Daniel Maloney, of the Rotary Club of Decatur, Alabama, USA, has been selected by the Nominating Committee to be President of Rotary International in 2019-20. He will be declared the president-nominee on 1 October if there are no challenging candidates.

“The clubs are where Rotary happens,” Mark believes. His priorities are to support and strengthen clubs at the community level, preserve Rotary’s culture as a service-oriented membership organization, and test new regional approaches for growth.

“With the eradication of polio, recognition for Rotary will be great and the opportunities will be many,” he says. “We have the potential to become the global powerhouse for doing good.”
