Michael Slovak of the Rotary Club of Bath was recommended by the D7120 Nominating Committee as the nominee for District Governor to serve for the Rotary year 2018-19. The requirements have been satisfied in accordance with Rotary International Bylaws Article 13.020.8 and District 7120 Policies and Procedures Section IA(9)(c). He therefore is declared the D7120 nominee for District Governor 2018-19 and for the remainder of the Rotary year 2015-16 shall assume the title of District Governor-Nominee-Designate.
Mike joined the Bath Rotary Club in 2004 and served as Club President in 2007-2008. He is one of 94 one term Presidents continuing a club tradition of no repeats. He was club Treasurer for 3 terms, Foundation and Program Chairperson for 4 terms and currently chairs the International Project Committee. He also has been a club Board Director since 2006. He is currently in his 3rd year as Assistant Governor for Area 3. Mike received the Rookie of the Year Award for 2005-2006 and the Rotarian of the Year Award for 2006-2007, 2012-2013 and 2014-2015. He is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and a member of the Paul Harris Society. He has also maintained perfect attendance since he joined Rotary. Mike is proud to have carried “Service above Self” into his position as Executive Director of the Health Ministry of the Southern Tier whose mission has been to provide free health care services (medical, dental, eye care, and hearing) for uninsured individuals living in Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben counties and whose overall household income is less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines. Mike and his wife Jo will join other “Moms and Pops” for RYLA Camp at RIT in 2016 for their fifth time. Jo is not a Rotarian but lives the ideals of one and was named a Paul Harris Fellow in 2015. They live in Bath, New York, and are extremely proud of their daughter, son-in-law, son and daughter-in-law and their 5 grandchildren who drive their energy and desire to see the world a better place for everyone to live in.
Please join us in congratulating Mike as the newest member of the D7120 Governors' Team.
