Bev Reed will be District Governor in 2018-19.  In 2004 she joined the Aurora Northwest Rotary Club in Spokane, Washington.  Shortly after joining she was selected as the chair for Aurora's key fundraiser in the Lilac Century Bike Ride.  Bev has been very active in her club as President in 2011-12 as well as chairing the Foundation and Membership Committees.  She was named Rotarian of the year at her club in 2005 and in 2015.
Bev's District involvement has been as a facilitator of the Rotary Leadership Institute since 2009.  She believes this is one of the foundation ways for members to not only learn about Rotary but to become more engaged on a club level as well as a District level.  In 2011-2014 she served as Assistant Governor and has been a President Elect Training Seminar Instructor for four years.  Believing in the work of Rotary, Bev is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and belongs to the Paul Harris Society.
Being raised in a small farming community in South Dakota, Bev understands the need for all to work together to insure that things get done.  Bev is a graduate from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota with a degree in education.  Her foundational learning equipped her for her professional career as well as her Rotary work.
Bev's professional work has been in the not for profit industry.  She has worked for the YMCA for 37 years in five different YMCA Associations from Florida to Texas and the Pacific Northwest.  Whether a Program Director or a CEO of an Association she has embraced the need to serve all in her community.  Her recent accomplishment was being part of an Executive Team in a $40 Million fundraising and construction project of two new YMCA facilities in Spokane, Washington.  In addition to her local responsibilities Bev is also a National YMCA Faculty trainer in the areas of Volunteerism, Fundraising, and Leading & Coaching Others.
When not working or volunteering Bev and her husband Bill enjoy spending time with their young adult sons Chance and Chase.  Also time always needs to be found for their love of golf, gardening and biking.
Bev's husband Bill well be a strong team support as they prepare and embrace their year as Governor.  Bill has been very active in the Aurora Northwest Rotary Club.  Bill has also been very generous in donating many promotional materials owning a print and design business.
Bev and Bill look forward to their wonderful journey serving District 5080.
