               Rotary Adds 7th Area of Focus

Posted on Jul 15, 2020
 
 

The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: supporting the environment.

More than $18 million in Foundation global grant funding has been allocated to environment-related projects over the past five years. Creating a distinct area of focus to support the environment will give Rotary members even more ways to bring about positive change in the world and increase our impact.

                        Re-Convening Meetings

Rotary Monitors COVID-19
 
For the health and safety of all participants, District 5910 will conduct all district level events virtually in place of in-person meetings, at least through the end of December.  Rotary International strongly encourages clubs to consider virtual meetings as well, but leaves the final choice to the individual club based upon local conditions and health advisories.  Rotary is monitoring updates and recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to ensure the safest and most appropriate actions are taken for our members.  Read the latest RI response to COVID-19:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As your Club begins to consider transitioning back to in-person meetings, a document with professional expertise and opinions will be
helpful.  It is shared with District 5910 Clubs by the Rotary Club of Galveston.

RLI

Rotary Leadership Institute is a golden opportunity for you – and during this time period,  it is being offered online! Parts I, II, and III are designed to be taken in succession, and each prior Part is a prerequisite for the next part. We look forward to having you join this exciting program!

Since our district is in the process of becoming an official member of the Lone Star Division of RLI, when in person meetings are being held again, we will be able to host sessions within our district instead of driving long distances to participate.

 

Rotary Leadership Institute . . .
offering leadership and Rotary
education training for Rotarians!

Rotary Leadership Institute is designed for those Rotarians who have the potential and willingness to engage in future club leadership (not necessarily as club presidents) to provide them with a quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills so important in voluntary organizations. The leadership skills you will obtain at an RLI event will help you not only in your Rotary career, but will apply to your leadership efforts professionally as well.

Current course offerings and registration links can be found at:
