DISTRICT GOVERNOR SCOTT DUDLEY TO VISIT ON OCTOBER 6, 2016
 
Scott Dudley and his wife, Christine or “Saint Christine” which she is called and deservedly so, live on Whidbey Island in the City of Oak Harbor, Washington.  
 
Scott joined the Rotary Club of North Whidbey Island Sunrise back in January of 2001 but became a “Rotarian” on a wheelchair distribution trip to Mexico several years later.  He has since done great work in both Haiti as well as Honduras.

Scott was a recipient of Rotary International’s “Service Above Self” Award, one of Rotary's highest recognitions.

He is a Major Donor as well as a member of the Paul Harris Society and a member of Rotary Foundation’s Bequest Society.
 
When he is not working on his Rotary Club’s next project or volunteering at the Rotary District Level, Scott can be found managing his investment office in Oak Harbor, Washington.
 
Scott stays active and as of July 2016, completed his 21st marathon.
 
He also served as the Mayor of the City of Oak Harbor, from 2012 through 2015.
 
Scott and Christine love to travel and have a total of five children.

Those that know Scott, know that he is a huge Seattle Seahawks fan but even a bigger fan of Rotary!

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,...

Convention: Southern hospitality
The Atlanta Host Organization Committee is offering some good old-fashioned Southern hospitality at the Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. It has planned a wide range of activities featuring everything from good food and music to inspiring tours of local landmarks. If it’s your first convention, these events are chances to meet fellow Rotarians from around the world, and if you’re an experienced convention goer, you can catch up with old friends. Hall of Fame baseball player Hank Aaron will host Rotarians for a “Strike Out Polio” night at the new SunTrust Park, where you’ll...
Member spotlight: The power of the press
When Teguest Yilma helped found the Rotary Club of Addis Ababa Entoto in 2002, she thought polio had already been eradicated from most of the world. But while Ethiopia had been free of the disease, Yilma was shocked to learn that new cases had started cropping up in surrounding countries such as Somalia. “I was thinking, it’s not possible, we can’t be free if the countries around us are not free,” she says. Yilma, the managing editor of Capital, Ethiopia’s largest English weekly newspaper, has brought a journalist’s skills to the fight against polio. She became vice chair of the Ethiopia...
