August Message to District 5080 from District Governor Jerri Anderson
August is Membership and New Club Development Month!   
NEWS FLASH!!  District 5080 will be chartering a new E-Club and Passport Club during the 2017-2018 Rotary Year!
What is a Rotary E-club?  E-Clubs do not gather for a typical Rotary meal, business meeting and guest speaker.   Instead, they meet on-line with all their operations supported by web technologies and electronic communications.   Stay tuned ~
This is an e-mail that was sent to PDG John Brewer about District 5080 helping with Shelter Boxes with the recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey.

Dear John,

Thank you for your ongoing support.  Today, while many of our Ambassadors were out raising funds to support our mission in Texas, others were here on the ground, hauling boxes, loading tents and making sure our shipments could start heading toward communities in need.  Witnessing this collective spirit and united effort makes me proud to be part of the ShelterBox family.

Please watch this quick video from Team Lead Bruce Heller and know how much the team here appreciates all that you do: https://youtu.be/8v8-SbYyQYE

Barry Rassin, of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, is the selection of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International for 2018-19. He will be declared the president-elect on 1 September if no challenging candidates have been suggested.

As president, Rassin aims to strengthen our public image and our use of digital tools to maximize Rotary’s reach.

“Those who know what good Rotary clubs do will want to be a part of it, and we must find new models for membership that allow all interested in our mission to participate,” he says. “With Rotary more in the public eye, we will attract more individuals who want to be part of and support a membership organization that accomplishes so much good around the world.”

Mark Daniel Maloney, of the Rotary Club of Decatur, Alabama, USA, is the selection of the Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International for 2019-20. He will be declared the president-nominee on 1 October if no challenging candidates have been suggested.

“The clubs are where Rotary happens,” says Maloney, an attorney. He aims to support and strengthen clubs at the community level, preserve Rotary’s culture as a service-oriented membership organization, and test new regional approaches for growth.

“With the eradication of polio, recognition for Rotary will be great and the opportunities will be many,” he says. “We have the potential to become the global powerhouse for doing good.”

“Below is an email from the Zone Disaster Chair of our adjacent Zone outlining the ongoing efforts in the Texas districts. We will keep you apprised of ongoing needs. Thank you for your financial and moral support to our colleagues in Texas.”

Yours in Rotary Service

Greg Yank

“Zone 21b & 27 Rotary Governors, as you have heard in the news Hurricane Harvey has dealt a heavy blow to the Southern part of Texas the extent of which we have yet to learn – things like flooded homes, schools like Rockport and Aransas Pass being partially destroyed, businesses wiped out, etc. As your Zone Disaster Chairman I have gathered from the three main Rotary districts affected by the Hurricane information on where to send any monetary aid you can gather up from your clubs and fellow Rotarians to help those in need. I am also including the three names of the District Governors affected that will be getting requests from their areas’ clubs for help. This way our fellow Rotarians will make sure the money is spent in the best way possible in their area. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or one or more of the three District Governors. Please get the information sent to your districts clubs by Monday so the information can be given out to club members starting Monday.”

What is Club Visioning?
Club Visioning is a four hour session held in an evening or Saturday morning to help a Club set goals that will define who they are in three years.
Who Should Participate?
The facilitation session is intended for all interested Rotarians in your Club—from your newest members to your most tenured, from the quietest members to the most outspoken.
Where is the Session Held?
The Club is responsible for identifying the location for the Visioning session. 
What time will the Session Start? Week nights, Mon thru Thurs, start at 5 or 5:30PM or a Sat morning.
How to get a Vision event in your Club
Clubs desiring a Visioning event designate a “Club Vision Coordinator/Chair” to work with the District Vision Chair, Sandy Mortensen.
What are the Outcomes of the Session?
There will be a consensus of what the Club goals are in all avenues of Service three years from now.
