Local & International News
 
Formerly known as the Zone Institute, we have renamed it the Zone Conference. So, what’s the same, and what’s different. The Institute was originally designed to motivate, inspire, and educate past, current and incoming district governors. That has not changed. We want and need as many past governors in attendance because we know there is a critical mass of that talent and leadership that can make an event magical. The pledge of the entire planning team is that the event will be worthy of your time and resources.
Clubs are invited to suggest eligible Rotarians for the position of District Governor Nominee Designate, “DGND” - the Rotarian who will advance through the District Governor chain of offices to become District Governor for 2021-22
 
The Nominee shall assume the title of Governor-Nominee-Designate upon selection and shall assume the title of District Governor-Nominee (DGN) on July 1, 2019. The selection shall be made by Nomination Committee procedure following RI By-Laws and our District Manual of Policies and Procedures, Section 8*.
 
 The suggested candidate must meet the qualifications specified in Rotary International By-law (“RIB”) 16.070*.   The District Governor’s duties are specified in Rotary International By-law 16.090*.  Further District Governor information specific to our District is found in the article Continuity, Consistency, Collaboration*.  A Club must forward its suggestion to the Nominating Committee using the 2018 District Governor-Nominee Designate Suggestion Form.
 
All of these documents are available from the district website. https://rotary7820.com under the menu item "District Documents/DGN-D Nomination" .
All but two Clubs in District 7820 use Facebook as an element of their Public Image efforts.
 
Social Media channels, particularly Facebook and Twitter are being used by Rotary Clubs to share their activities with other Rotarians as well as with the publix.

Over the past the 4 years the growth in the total number of "Likes" to all Facebook pages operated by our Rotary Clubs has grown by over 210%.  The growth by year is shown below.
 
Happy New Year!
 
Yes, it is a new Rotary year and we should all take a moment to think about what we would normally do at the start of a calendar New Year, which is to make some New Year resolutions. What are your personal resolutions as a Rotarian as we commence our 2018 - 2019 year? Barry Rassin, our RI President for this year has encouraged us to make lasting  change in ourselves, our community and the world. What are your resolutions for your club? Will you use this year to inspire others to join our wonderful organization and to truly make a difference in the world?
 
I look forward to meeting all of you as Irene and I spend time with yourand your clubs. I look forward to talking with you in some detail about the concept of S.H.A.P.E. an acronym I developed to provide a framework of how our clubs and District can move forward through this coming year.
 
All the best for a wonderful new (Rotary) year.
