On July 1 a new Rotary year is set to begin, and with it a fresh slate of leaders who take over at the club, district, and international level. We
welcome Eva Vida from the Rotary Club of Winnipeg as our District Governor for 2011-2012.
Kalyan Banerjee, of the Rotary Club of Vapi, Gujarat, India, is Rotary's 101st president. This year the RI President is asking Rotarians to Reach Within to Embrace Humanity during the 2011-12 Rotary year. "In order to achieve anything in this world, a person has to use all the resources he can draw on. And the only place to start is with ourselves and within ourselves."
RI President Kalyan believes that Rotary's strengths include its ability to attract leaders from different vocations around the world as well as its role in promoting peace. "My goal is for Rotary to become the preferred organization for today's generation to join and participate in to make the world better, safer and happier" he said in a recent Interview.
