Our guest speaker on March 8th will be Robert R. Janes. Robert is an independent scholar-practitioner, Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of the journal Museum Management and Curatorship, a Visiting Fellow at the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester (UK), and a Fellow of the Canadian Museums Association. He was the President and CEO of the Glenbow Museum (1989-2000) in Calgary, the founding Director of the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (1976-1986), and the founding Executive Director of the Science Institute of the Northwest Territories (1986-1989), both in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. He is also the founder and  co-chair of the Coalition of Museums for Climate Justice. Robert has a Ph.D. in archaeology and began his career in Canada’s remote Northwest Territories. He has worked with Canada’s Indigenous Peoples (First Nations and Inuit) throughout his career and was given a traditional Blackfoot name in 1995. He directed the largest repatriation of Indigenous sacred objects in Canadian history while CEO of the Glenbow Museum. Working in and around museums for 44 years, Robert has devoted  his career to championing museums as important social institutions that can enhance the well-being of individuals and their communities.  His museum publications have been translated into ten languages, and his latest book Museum Activism (with Richard Sandell - 2019), was awarded the Canadian Museums Association’s 2020 Award for Outstanding Achievement  for Research in the Cultural Sector. Robert lives in Canmore, Alberta, with his wife, Priscilla.
--The Jack Burghardt Community "Service Above Self" Award--
This prestigious award may be awarded annually in the spring of the year. The purpose of The Jack Burghardt Community "Service Above Self" Award is to recognize a member of the Rotary Club of London who is primarily involved as an active community volunteer in “non-Rotarian” activities, and secondarily as an active member within the Rotary Club of London. For much of the 1970s Jack Burghardt anchored CFPL-TV’s FYI News at 6 p.m. In 1981 he won the Federal by-election in London West. Following federal politics, Jack entered municipal politics winning a seat on the Board of Control in 1985. As he garnered the most votes, he attained the position of Deputy Mayor and was re-elected to both positions in 1988 and 1991. In 1974 Jack joined our Club and became one of our Sergeants-At-Arms, an extremely successful one!  Jack helped out with a variety of committees including the Easter Seals campaigns. Following Jack’s death in 2002 the name of this award was changed to The Jack Burghardt Community ‘Service Above Self’ Award. 
All current active members of the Rotary Club of London, including Board members, are eligible to receive this award with the exception of the following members who are previous recipients: Bill Barnett, Jim Swan, Heather Broadhead, Bruce McGauley, Randy Warden, Felipe S. Gomes, Jan Delaney, John Eberhard, Jim Belton, Bob Earle, Ron Posno and Harry Joosten. Members of the Club are requested to complete the Nomination Form and forward to Club Secretary, Jim Belton, at  by Monday, 15 March.  The form is can be found the home page of our website under “Home Page Download Files”. The final decision rests with the Board.
