Meet District Governor Chris McLucas
Christopher J McLucas and wife Heather
The theme for 2017-2018 is the most simplistic theme in years to tell the world exactly what we as Rotarians in our clubs in concert with the Rotary International organization do in the world.
 
Last February, while at PETs each club president was provided with several changes to the manner and method by which Rotary Clubs can operate to work to increase and retain Membership. These times are exciting for Rotary members as each clubs leadership will be redesigning their clubs operating policies in order to improve the membership experience in their club while executing the same Service Above Self community service projects each club has become known to deliver. The key here is flexibility. Clubs will be designing club experiences that meet their community and member culture.
 
Improvements will also occur in the Rotaract, Interact and EarlyAct experience with these Rotarians of the future taking an active roll in each Rotary clubs experience.
 
From Heathers perspective, “the Earlyact program in Rotary a fantastic program and has the potential of spreading the word about Rotary to people that may never have known about Rotary”. Heather plans to work with clubs throughout the district to establish Earlyact Clubs in District 5790 during the 2017-2018 year.
 
Both of us look forward to a wonderful year.
 
September is Basic Education & Literacy Month

District Governor 5790
 
In addition, here are some other opportunities to make a difference offered by nearby Rotary Districts:
State Representative from District 64, Dr Lynn Stucky and area State Representatives' donation drive.  Champions members Dr Stucky in green, Gary Henderson and Lyle Dresher.   Numerous other Champions members and friends donated supplies.   They intend to fill an 18-wheeler to take down to a designated area arranged by disaster relief agencies.
We are a People of Action.
 
Generally speaking, Rotary club members do a great job of making non-Rotarian guests feel welcome when they attend our meetings. But, what happens when those guests leave? Do you record the guests name and contact information? If you do, does someone follow-up with that guest? What is your clubs procedure?
Rotary Club presidents and their leadership have completed their strategic plan update for the coming year. For most, membership growth is at the top of the list that club membership committees will be addressing throughout the remainder of the year. The District 5790 Membership Committee has identified specific activities that successful clubs can adopt to achieve their goals.
 
The District 5790 Awards & Membership Committees have used many of these specific activities to design the 2017-2018 District 5790 Membership Awards Submission form. Club membership committees may wish to download a PDF copy of the 2017-2018 District 5790 Membership Awards Submission form and it to establish membership milestones and goals for 2017-2018.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
