“Louisiana Flood Relief Opportunities”
 
South Louisiana is underwater (over 100,000 Homeless) and teams are going out to help but hardly any donations have come in. Supplies for response teams and supplies for those affected by this disaster are drastically needed. District Governor Francis Nezianya and the officers and staff of RI District 6200 have reached our to District 5790 for help in organizing relief efforts for the victims in Baton Rouge. Both financial assistance and manpower are needed. 
 
 
 
 
 
RI President John Germs August 1, 2016 Membership Month memo was amended to include the following comments regarding RI's new membership materials being offered to support club membership growth and retention:
 
Providing you with the materials to help cultivate and maintain membership is something Rotary is striving to do, now more than ever. Clubs can use our new Rotary Club Health Check and Membership Assessment Tools to identify their problem areas and develop strategies to address them. Also available is Impact Begins with You, a regionalized brochure for prospective members available on shop.rotary.org. As part of our Membership Month celebrations, Rotary is offering a 20% discount on orders of this prospective member brochure (up to 20 packs of 5) through August 31.
 
 
 
 

PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE, AUGUST 2016

Forty years ago, a man named George Campbell, the owner of the company I worked for, invited me to join Rotary. Back then, that was a common practice in the United States. Your boss invited you to join Rotary because he thought it would be good for business and good for the community, and you said yes. It’s not surprising that our membership surged during that period.

 
 
 
 
Picture this, one of your members just had a wonderful business lunch with a client. Getting to know each other the conversation eventually gets around to "what do you do when you are not working". Your fellow Rotarian takes advantage of the opportunity to brag about your Rotary Club. The client's curiosity is piqued and says what's Rotary? Your member hands them the Rotary "see us in action card", tells them the name of your club and invites them to your next meeting. Upon returning to work, the client googles your club's name.
 
If this truly was one of your members and the client did google your club name, would that client be inspired to accept the invitation based on what was discovered in the Google search?
 
The District 5790 District Services team has been wondering the same thing. So, we performed a very basic study of the Internet presence of every single one of the 69 Rotary Clubs in our district.
 
 
 
 
There are several categories of awards in Rotary that apply to clubs and individual members. Each year qualification criteria for awards changes depending on the RI President’s chosen theme, the DG’s goals, and the Awards Committee preferences. This year is no different. All awards can be found in the Playbook on the district web site.
 
The biggest change at the District 5790 level is that we are attempting to streamline the submission process by going all electronic and greatly simplifying the questions and answers. There are two links in the previously referenced Playbook under Awards in the left hand column what allow you to see the questions for each award or to actually play with those live forms.

From the July 2016 issue of The Rotarian
Just before John Germ dropped by, Rick Youngblood took a deep breath. “You want to match his energy,” he says, “but he makes it hard to keep up.” Youngblood is the president and CEO of Blood Assurance, a regional blood bank in Chattanooga, Tenn., that Germ helped found in 1972.

Practicing peace
Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence."

Each year, the program prepares up to 100 fellows to work for peace through a two-year master's degree program or a three-month professional certificate program at university partners worldwide. Today, nearly 1,000 peace centers alumni are applying their skills — negotiating peace in conflict...
