New Season, New Lineup
Next month, August that is, starts another new season of Rotary Leadership Institute Sunshine Division events. In keeping with the concept of developing future leaders we have some new kids on the RLI SD Leadership Team; as well as some returning folks in new positions. We are constantly striving to be the best resource possible to our fourteen member Rotary Districts, plus the Rotary Clubs and Rotarians within them
PDG Randy Rawiszer (D6980) is the new Promotions Chair. Chris Stallworth (D6910) and Allan Soto (6910) are Co-Directors of New Media. Mark Poulsen (D6910), Roger Lacy (D6950), PDG Gary Israel (D6960), Drew Monaghan (D6990), and PDG Rupert Ross (D7020) are all newly minted RLI SD District Directors. Corporate Secretary Brenda Wendt (D6950) has taken on the additional responsibility of Chief Administrative Officer
Brevity and Past District Governors do not often collide in the same sentence; so take advantage of the happening when it occurs, like now. That being said, please join me in welcoming the above people to their new positions and wishing them the best during the year to come. And now, let the year begin
RLI Sunshine Division enjoyed great success in its recent RLI held at the University of St. Martin in Philipsburg, Sint-Maarten. With thirty Rotarians representing the Rotary Club of St. Maarten, St. Barths and Anguilla, RLI participants enjoyed a day of sharing experiences and knowledge about Rotary International. Discussion Leader Diana White was quoted as saying,Rotary is somewhat unique in terms of having its membership having different vocations…We try to have a mix that is representative of the community in ever sense–professionally, ethnically and gender diverse.” Sessions on public relations and Rotary policies were a favorite among many that participated in the day’s session.
