Top News
It’s District Conference time! After 3 years of planning, it’s time to gather in Lake George for our 2017 annual Rotary District 7190 meeting.
I am very pleased to say that we have over 190 folks registered to attend all or part of the conference, and we have a good chance of hitting 200. In terms of clubs attending, we have 38 of 41 clubs represented at the conference. We will have a great time!
And don’t forget the Rollin’ with Rotary event that will take place in Lake George Village after the District Conference ends. We’re hoping that many Rotarians and guests can stay for that event after the conference ends, or perhaps head up to Lake George Sunday afternoon to participate.
May is a busy month for many activities including Rotary Clubs. Keep an eye out for your club or Area Rotary activities and be sure to take part if your schedule permits.
Please continue to work on membership for your club between now and the end of the Rotary year. We still have a chance to end the year with membership growth. If every club could add one more member between now and the end of June, I believe we would have growth for the year.
Finally, remember the District Changeover event, at River Stone Manor in Scotia on Sunday, June 25, 2017, from 11:30 AM – 2:00 PM. Time to change the guard and start a new Rotary year!
Thanks for all you do for Rotary,
DG John Mucha

Something for every Rotarian

For the first time in 5 years, the Rotary International Convention returns to the USA! It will be held in Atlanta, and will feature a celebration of the Rotary Foundation Centennial. If you have never been to a Rotary International Convention, this is a great time to do it. You will have a chance to meet Rotarians from over 130 countries, and make new Rotary friends while renewing old acquaintances. In addition, you will hear about exciting club projects from around the world and share what your club is doing. The general and breakout sessions are world class and the House of Friendship offers amazing chances to learn and share. We hope that 40 to 50 Rotarians and guests will attend from District 7190. Register soon since this will be a truly popular Convention!

We are neighbors, community leaders, and global citizens uniting for the common good. With you, we can accomplish even more.

Five years since its debut, Rotary Club Central is getting a big upgrade
When we introduced Rotary Club Central in 2012, it revolutionized goal tracking and planning for clubs and districts — no more filling out paper club-planning forms or passing along boxes of historical club information every time a new leader took office. Rotary Club Central offered clubs and districts a quantifiable way to begin measuring local and global impact, specifically membership initiatives, service activities, and Rotary Foundation giving. But as with any technological advancement, in a few short years, Rotary Club Central began to show its age, and Rotarians took notice. They...
Rotary International Board adopts new zone structure
At its January 2017 meeting, the Rotary International Board of Directors adopted a new zone structure for Rotary clubs. Rotary bylaws require the Board to complete a comprehensive review of the 34 Rotary zones no less often than every eight years to ensure that each zone has an approximately equal number of Rotarians. The Board’s previous review of the zones occurred in 2008. The Board earlier approved the creation of three regional workgroups to develop rezoning proposals for Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas. These workgroups comprised one representative (either a current director,...
