Incoming district governors got their first look at the presidential theme for 2016-17, Rotary Serving Humanity, today at the International Assembly, an annual training event for future leaders. RI President-elect John F. Germ encouraged attendees to work as a team to get the word out about what Rotary is, and what we do, especially as we near the end of our goal to eradicate polio. “The more we are known for what we’ve achieved, the more we’ll be able to attract the partners, the funding, and most important of all, the members to achieve even more.”
We caught up with incoming district governors after the theme was announced to get their thoughts.
Megan Law, Rotary Club of Oklahoma City Midtown, USA (District 5750): “I think the theme perfectly describes what our goal has been all along. We’re here to help one small step at a time. What better way to say to the world, ‘Here’s what we do. We serve humanity.’ ”
Akabom Enebong, Rotary Club of Calabar, Nigeria (District 9140): “Nothing could have been more inspiring. It encourages us to do more. We all need to be prepared to carry out Germ’s theme.”
