We have many dedicated Rotarians in District 7120 who put a tremendous amount of energy into making this one of the best Districts in the world. While we have many challenges ahead of us, these Rotarians play many roles to make us an effective team. Sure, we have our ups and downs like most organizations, but we can thank all of these individuals for sharing their skills and talents to make us the best that we can be.
 
Over the next few months, I hope to reintroduce you to many of these great team players. This month I am highlighting our Assistant Governors. There are now 14 Assistant Governors covering the 14 Areas in our District.
 
This year we have 9 New* Assistant Governors. Here they are by the Areas they represent:
On Monday, July 8th Jo and I started making our “official” club visits. Since our last scheduled visit is just prior to Thanksgiving, it didn’t take me long to realize that I would be sharing my district goals in a timeframe that spanned more than 4 months and hence the reason for this article. While I won’t share my entire presentation in this article, I do want you to know a little more about them at this time.
 
Here’s the list that I have shared with the clubs we have visited so far:
  • Increase Member Global Perspective
  • Increase Member Foundation Giving
  • Increase Club Support
  • Increase Personal & Professional Development & Training Opportunities
  • Improve & Increase Communications
  • Increase Club Strategic Plan Development
 
 
 
Welcome to 7120
A message from District Governor Mike Slovak.
(Well worth the read)
District Governor Mike Slovak and Jo SlovakThere is nothing more important to most of us than our families.
 
That’s why Jo and I are calling this Rotary Year (2018-19) the “Year of the Family”.
