Our President Elect Brad Serl recently attended Rotary Zone Conference 2017 in Chicago. This conference is for incoming District Governors, but Brad was able to participate via a future leaders program. Themes of the conference included struggles with membership (especially in the west), struggles with attracting & retaining young people, costs and alternative meetings. Rotary was originally established as a business networking club.  If Rotarians & their businesses are doing well, we can do more good. The next Zones Conference will be in Montreal, October 2018 and is open to all members.
