Ginger A. Eads, a certified public accountant in Flower Mound and a member of Rotary Club of Cross Timbers, was recently appointed to Rotary International’s Finance Committee. She began her service July 1.

The Finance Committee advises the board on Rotary's finances including budgets, investment policy, and sustainability measures. Members of the committee must have a professional background in a finance-related field; non-profit experience is preferred. Candidates should have experience at the club and district level in financial matters. It is a three-year term with two meetings a year in Evanston, Ill., and virtual meetings as needed.

Ginger owns her accounting firm and enjoys taking care of her small business and individual clients through bookkeeping, consulting and tax services. She manages the day-to-day financial operations of a non-profit organization and prepares non-profit tax returns for several entities.

She is married to Andy Eads, a Rotarian since 2001 and charter president of the Rotary Club of Cross Timbers. Andy will serve as governor of District 5790 in 2024-2025.  Their two sons, Everett and Addison, attend Texas Tech University, and their daughter, Caroline, is a sophomore in high school.

Ginger joined Rotary in 2015 as one of six founding members of the Rotary Club of Cross Timbers, a club that quickly grew to 120 members, which it maintains to this day. She was the charter treasurer of her club, serving in that position for two years before proceeding to the offices of vice-president, president-elect and president of the Rotary Club of Cross Timbers in 2019-2020. Her club received the Presidential Citation with Platinum Distinction that year, as well as a Young Club District Governor Award. Under her leadership, a Habitat for Humanity house was started and completed during COVID-19.  Ginger also served as treasurer of District 5790 in 2018-2019. She is a Paul Harris Fellow.

Rotary service runs in Ginger’s family. In 1927, her great-grandfather was a founding member of the Rotary Club of San Saba, Texas. Her grandfather joined the Rotary Club of San Saba in 1953 and her grandmother served as a "Rotary Ann" until she was the first woman inducted in the San Saba club in 1989. Although they never served together in Rotary, they had a combined 50 years of perfect attendance when she died in 2004.

"I want my great-grandchildren to be able to look up the good works of our Cross Timbers Rotary Club years from our charter date, and receive inspiration to create something sustainable themselves, perhaps through a Rotary Club they have founded and chartered," Ginger says.
