A message from District Governor, Amando 
As we begin a new Rotary Year 2021-2022  I am honored to serve as your District 5930 District Governor. Our District Leadership is comprised of a team committed to provide the best in guiding and assisting you to grow your club membership, provide abundant opportunities to learn more about Rotary, support our Rotary Foundation, new service projects, and many more opportunities for you to have a great and successful year.
Our compassion and willingness to open our hearts to those in need combined with our commitment to share our time and talent, with those who are less fortunate is what causes Rotarians to do the extraordinary things that we do.
We are people serving together in assisting others expecting nothing in return. We live by our Rotary Motto: Service Above Self. This is Rotary.
Rotary International President, Shekhar Mehta urged members to become more involved in-service projects, saying that caring for and serving others is the best way to live because it changes not only other people’s lives, but also our own.
There are many families in need throughout our communities and the world whose only hope will come from Rotary. Where there is peace, hope is restored.
Peace through serving will be the cornerstone of our mission. When we work together to create peace in the communities, that change will have a lasting effect.
You are the leaders of change and Peace through Rotary is our path.
We have the energy and the will to serve to change lives. Are you ready? Are you ready for big challenges? Are you ready to serve? Are you ready to change lives? Together, let us Serve to Change Lives.
My best to all of you and let us have a GREAT ROTARY YEAR TOGETHER.
Peace through Rotary,
Amando Chapa

Rotary International Membership Development

Dear Rotarian Juan,

The Rotary International Board of Directors have recently adopted a new recognition program called the Membership Society, to recognize those members who have demonstrated extraordinary dedication and commitment in sharing the gift of Rotary with others.  

A new virtual gallery is being designed to honor those members who have cumulatively sponsored 25 or more new members.  According to our records, and in recognition of your efforts, I am pleased to share that you are a charter member of Rotary’s Membership Society. 

In the coming months, the virtual gallery will be accessible through My Rotary, and will list People of Action, like you, who have expanded Rotary’s reach by sponsoring 25 or more new members.

Congratulations on your achievement and thank you for all you do to grow Rotary.

Brian King
Director, Membership Development

We are committed to supporting activities that strengthen the conservation and protection of natural resources, advance ecological sustainability, and foster harmony between communities and the environment. We empower communities to access grants and other resources, embrace local solutions, and spur innovation in an effort to address the causes and reduce the effects of climate change and environmental degradation.
