Our incoming Rotary International President is Gary C.K. Huang from Taiwan. Mr. Huang has been a Rotarian since 1976 and is a member of the Rotary Club of Taipei, Taiwan. In his business career, he has been involved in banking, insurance and industrial development.
Mr. Huang has announced that his theme for the Rotary year, beginning July1, is "Light up Rotary"...because we have not done enough to show Rotary to the public. His goal is to increase membership world-wide by 50,000. He's confident we can make that happen if we can expand into China. We can also make that happen by tapping into the large body of Rotary Alumni - people who have been involved in Youth Exchange, RYLA, Ambassadorial Scholars, Groups Study Exchange, Rotaractors and Interactors. and here's an idea - get our spouses to join - they certainly know the good that Rotary does! "Some people still think that Rotary is a man's club. I ask them, 'Are you sure your wife is not qualified?'"! Korea, Taiwan and India have made great strides in admitting women; now we have to succeed in too-conservative Japan.  (Read the full story in this month's Rotarian magazine).
