August 2022
From District Governor
All Rotarians in Rotary District 5930
We held the Victoria (Northern) Assembly on July 16, 2022; our Second Regional Assembly.
Our Assistant Governors teaming together to HOST our assemblies in each Region sets a powerful example of how Rotary extends our reach, engages our participants and learns to adapt together (exactly how our Vision becomes Action)!  In each of our Assemblies those attending become more aware how great and supporting our AGs are for their clubs.
 I also appreciate the work being done by our District Committee Leaders, their efforts and capabilities. We are sharpening our skills!
As they engage those in their breakouts and assist them by facilitation, our club members see the best of those areas discussed. We also see how members each have different approaches to each area and can share their best practices. It’s exciting.

 Our lunchtime inspiration has emphasized how Rotary is significantly stronger as we combine efforts to Serve our Communities together.  The reality is that the ability of individual Clubs, their member’s experience and skills are diverse and exist in different cultures and fellowship abilities. When Clubs that are close to one another help each other we are stronger for our larger impact - it can reach across the globe.  Being our own clubs but joining together occasionally to serve others we are stronger than just acting alone.

Finally Club Visioning shows how Clubs can work together; Leaders and Members can see their future. Goals come from their Vision and the resulting Action Plan provides a path to be the best they can be. Each time the Action Plan is reviewed it can be updated and made even stronger. A momentum is created from year to year and as leadership changes and helps members engage with those new opportunities that exist at those moments.

The same theme overall continues; Rotary in District 5930 becomes better as a result of our Clubs efforts tailored to their community service and awareness.

Thank you, for each and every one of you!
Kent Grier, District Governor 2022-2023
The Six Big Challenges in Rotary by John Hewko- CEO RI
John Hewko recently outlined the six major challenges Rotary International is facing:
1. MEMBERSHIP - Our number internal focus. We are selling a product, which is the club experience. If your product isn't selling you need to change it. Marketing is a vessel, but the product we are delivering must be what our members and potential members want. We can determine this through assessment tools/surveys.
Presidential Initiatives 2022-2023
Rotary International President Jennifer Jones imagines a Rotary where members act to make their dreams become reality and make the most of their club experiences. During her year, Jones will focus on four presidential initiatives that Imagine Rotary: advancing our commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI); creating a welcoming club experience; empowering girls; and expanding our reach.

End Polio Now
Dear PolioPlus Committees:
The Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) has been informed of a case of paralytic polio in an unvaccinated individual in Rockland County, New York, United States.
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) are coordinating with New York State health authorities on their investigation. Initial sequencing confirmed by CDC indicates that the case is type 2 VDPV.
Any form of poliovirus anywhere is a threat to children everywhere. It is critical that the GPEI Polio Eradication Strategy 2022-2026 is fully resourced and fully implemented everywhere, to ensure a world free of all forms of poliovirus can be achieved.
We are calling on every single Rotarian to take action and be a part of the fight to end polio, helping to raise $50 million per year for polio eradication.

People of Action helps define Rotary for those who don’t know us. We’re professional, community, and civic leaders who connect with each other and who share a unique perspective and passion for taking action to improve the world. Describing and showing ourselves as people of action creates a personal connection to Rotary and emphasizes the impact we make in our communities.
