Aside from being Bruce Howard’s cousin, Brad is a Past District Governor of District 5170
(California’s Silicon Valley), and a past member of the Board of Directors of Rotary International
for the 2015-17 Rotary years. He just completed serving a three-year term as Chairman of Rotary’s Communication Committee. In addition, was also a member of the 2020 Rotary Virtual Convention committee.

The eradication of polio has been a significant part of Brad’s Rotary experience. He served 10 years as the Zone 26 End Polio Now Coordinator, and has led 34 Rotarian groups, comprised of over 1,600 people, to participate in polio national immunization days in sub-Saharan, West Africa and India.

Brad told us that, in order to remain relevant, clubs need to evolve. Now that we are not limited to holding our meetings within four walls, we should work to get great speakers and invite the community to join us. Our most essential quality is our members.

While we don’t have the ability to tape our Zoom meetings, you can hear Bruce’s talk at the 2020 Virtual Convention on this exact topic at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIBF04gxmLI&feature=youtu.be . Our District Governor, Deb Linden, also recently sent out an interesting link about Clubs Made to Order.
