Rotary International Goals for the Upcoming Year

Gordon McInally, member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, Lothian, Scotland, will begin his one-year term as president of Rotary International on 1 July 2023. 

During his term, McInally will focus on steering the global membership service organization with an emphasis on mental health, recognizing its critical role in community well-being worldwide. McInally aims to create a culture that understands and supports mental health, while working to reduce stigma, increase awareness, and improve access to mental health services. With 1.4 million members in 200 countries and regions, Rotary will continue to actively address mental health as part of its ongoing efforts to tackle the world’s most pressing challenges.

“Mental health has often been a less talked-about aspect of wellness. However, in a world grappling with various challenges, it is imperative that we bring mental health to the forefront. Rotary, with its widespread network, has the capacity to foster dialogue and support,” said McInally. “By emphasizing mental health, we can make a considerable difference in communities around the world. This is about nurturing humanity for a better tomorrow.” 

More about the goals of the new RI President can be found in the link below.  His three priorities for the year are mental health, peacebuilding through virtual exchanges, and empowering girls.  Here is a link to it on the RI website https://my.rotary.org/en/news-media/office-president/presidential-initiatives.

 
Chicago will host the 2030 Rotary International Convention in 2030! 
 
“We’re thrilled to announce today, on the anniversary of the first Rotary club meeting in 1905, that Chicago will once again host Rotary’s biggest gathering,” said the chair of Rotary’s Chicago Bid Team, Lyle Staab. “We can’t wait to show our visitors all Chicago has to offer.  We’re determined to deliver a memorable experience for the participants, and to make a difference in Chicagoland through the event.”
 
Rotary members and participants from around the world will gather in Chicago to connect, learn from each other and various experts, and share ideas for bringing positive, lasting change to communities across the globe. The annual Rotary convention was last held in Chicago in 2005 and was attended by approximately 40,000 participants.
 
 “What started with the vision of one person, our founder Chicago attorney Paul Harris, to gather professionals with diverse backgrounds to exchange ideas, form meaningful, lifelong friendships and give back to their communities – quickly grew to become a global movement,” said Rotary International President Jennifer Jones. “As the birthplace of the world’s first service organization, Chicago is the ideal location for our members and participants to reflect upon and celebrate our successes, and plan for the next 125 years and beyond to improve lives and strengthen communities around the world.”
