District Governor Bill Robson was raised in the Northeast of England and came to Canada in 1974.  He was the charter president of the Cloverdale Club in 1994 and joined the Langley Central Club in 2003.
The District Governor is an officer of Rotary International  and his responsibility is to be a liaison between R.I. and the District Clubs.  Bill has the contacts and connections with the hierarchy of the R.I organization to know where to call to get the appropriate response to issues that Clubs may have problems with.
Bill updated us on the progress of the fight to eradicate polio.  The continent of Africa has been polio free since the last case in Nigeria was past the incubation date for the polio virus.
Membership is a priority for the DG's as it is for all of Rotary.  We need to think about why we joined Rotary and why we stay, and share that message with our friends, neighbours and co-workers.  Tell them what you love about Rotary.
The District Conference will be held in Semiahmoo from April 28 - May 1, 2016
