District Stories
Last November, Governor Gerald Robinson announced two e-club initiatives for District 5790. The intent of these initiatives is to allow the formation of two e-clubs in District 5790. One e-club will focus on former youth program participants and the other e-club will focus on community programs. Both are intended to provide a Rotary service vehicle for those whose travel and business commitments inhibit participation in one of the 71 community based Rotary clubs in our district.
How is your club Progressing toward it's 2018-2019 Goals?
Rotary International President Barry Rassin has asked each of our 36,678 worldwide Rotary Clubs to report and periodically update their 2018-2019 goals in Rotary Club Central. Forty-six of our District 5790 Rotary Clubs have posted their 2018-2018 goals in Rotary Club Central. Our 2018-2019 Rotary year is almost half over. How is your club doing? How many service projects has your club completed thus far? How many volunteer hours have been devoted to your communities? These are all questions easily answered by completing the service activities portion of your clubs Rotary Club Central report for each of the projects you have done thus far. Unsure how to go about updating your goals? Contact your Training/Technology Area Training Officer for guidance.

Play Golf with a Legend

Twelve generous supporters of Rotary's Polio eradication efforts will have the opportunity to play golf with legend (and Polio Survivor) Jack Nicklaus, a Rotary Ambassador for Polio eradication.  

Something for our golfing Rotary members to think about:
“ The proper score for a businessman golfer is 90. If he is better than that he is neglecting his business. If he’s worse, he’s neglecting his golf.”

Consider joining 150 plus fellow District 5790 Rotary Members in Guatemala next June
District Governor and the Guatemala Service Project team is hard at work planning a fantastic year end service project that will change lives in the country of Guatemala. 
The team is working with all the clubs in the district to arrange funding. International Service Area Training Officers are visiting clubs in their area to explain the projects we plan to do next June.
We are also surveying Rotary members throughout the district to assess interest in going to Guatemala next June to work on these projects. If you are interested in joining fellow Rotary members from District 5790 in participating in these project the end of June please complete the survey by clicking here.
As District Governor Gerald Robinson travels the district, you’ll hear him speak about one of District 5790’s goals for this year, which is for every club to be active with an initiative addressing homelessness.
We know that you are community service driven as a natural part of embodying “SERVICE ABOVE SELF”, so you may already have these connections to community providers. IF you need it, as your Community Service Assistance Team, we will help connect your club to organizations in your area that provide services to the homeless and unsheltered.

As we start the new 2018 rotary year we have already started looking towards the 2019/20 Youth Exchange Year.  

We have re-branded the year YE program as the District 5790 Youth Exchange Scholarship Program.  The scholarship brand is being used because what we are able to offer through the YE program is; free room and board, free tuition at a school in a host country and a monthly stipend while in that country.  The monetary value of this alone is approximately $15,000.  If we add in the value of living abroad for up to a year, learning a new language and developing resume building life skills then the value is incalculable!  

We owe it to the students of our district to share this opportunity with them. 
If your club sponsors an Interact Club at your local High School I would love the opportunity to come and speak about the Youth Exchange Scholarship Program.  
The sooner in the year we can get this information to the students the better to determine if they are candidates.  We will conduct district interviews in November and December and students need time to think about their options. 

I look forward to hearing from the Interact coordinator at your club!

ATO Club Culture Team members are scheduled for a training session on September 21. In the meantime each will visit their respective clubs with a view of meeting AG for the area and officers of the clubs. Our ultimate goal is to assist clubs in assessing their club culture and doing strategic planning for success.

Did you know that District 5790 has a team of volunteers dedicated to helping clubs implement Rotary Technology?
Without a doubt, new technology can be frustrating. That is why District Governor Gerald Robinson and the Training/Technology Team Captain John Pokorny have put together a team of Rotary members from club throughout the district dedicated to helping your club implement Rotary Technology like Rotary Club Central in Rotary.org and ClubRunner in the District and Club websites. The team is made up of past presidents and club secretaries that have successfully applied some or all of these tools in their clubs. Club executives are encouraged to contact a team member to share their experience with these tools.
