Meet District Governor Chris McLucas
Christopher J McLucas and wife Heather
The theme for 2017-2018 is the most simplistic theme in years to tell the world exactly what we as Rotarians in our clubs in concert with the Rotary International organization do in the world.
 
Last February, while at PETs each club president was provided with several changes to the manner and method by which Rotary Clubs can operate to work to increase and retain Membership. These times are exciting for Rotary members as each clubs leadership will be redesigning their clubs operating policies in order to improve the membership experience in their club while executing the same Service Above Self community service projects each club has become known to deliver. The key here is flexibility. Clubs will be designing club experiences that meet their community and member culture.
 
Improvements will also occur in the Rotaract, Interact and EarlyAct experience with these Rotarians of the future taking an active roll in each Rotary clubs experience.
 
From Heathers perspective, “the Earlyact program in Rotary a fantastic program and has the potential of spreading the word about Rotary to people that may never have known about Rotary”. Heather plans to work with clubs throughout the district to establish Earlyact Clubs in District 5790 during the 2017-2018 year.
 
Both of us look forward to a wonderful year.
 
District Stories

There has been an outpouring of heartfelt messages since Rotary International President-elect Sam’s passing last week. Rotarians and members of the public have been sharing memories and recalling how Sam inspired them through his hard work as a Rotarian and as a dedicated civil servant. It is clear that his impact and legacy were felt worldwide.

There will be a service for Sam on Friday, 21 July, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., at St. Vincent’s Cathedral in Bedford, Texas. Friends in the area are encouraged to visit. Funeral services in Uganda are currently being planned.

 
In Rotary, the month of July is Rotary Officers transition month. It is a time when each clubs Board of Director's confirm their annual strategic plans and appoint committee chairs and members. Each club will be appointing members to their Foundation Committee, their Membership Committee and their Public Image Committee. Think sturdy three legged stool on which the remainder of the clubs service and fund raisers committees rest in order to be successful.

Presumably, your club has already or is in the process of establishing club goals for the Rotary, Making A Difference year. Here are some tools at your disposal:
 
 
 
 
So far this year we have only 7 new Total Paralysis Cases Worldwide. 19 were recorded for the same time period last year. Our goal of course is zero.
 
The Final Three Endemic Countries:
Pakistan - One new Polio case reported this week.  Three cases reported in 2017 -the most recent from the Killa Abdullah Balochistan province with an onset on 6/10/17.  Twenty Polio cases were reported in 2016.  No new WPV1 positive environmental samples were reported this week.
 
Afghanistan - No new Polio cases reported this week.  Four cases reported in 2017 - the most recent in the Nawzad district, Hilmand with the onset of paralysis on 4/16/17,  Thirteen Polio cases were reported in 2016. One new Polio-positive environmental sample was collected this week from the Kandahar area in Afghanistan.    
 
Nigeria - No new Polio cases reported this week.   Four Polio cases reported in 2016 - with no cases reported in 2015.  The most recent case was reported on 8/2016 on Borno State. 
 
The culture of a Rotary Club should be determined by the many talented personalities of members all supporting one cause…”Service above self”.  Getting the membership pulling together in the same direction, as a unified team, suggests the need for some degree of planning. Significant achievements of clubs result by design, not by chance!
A Satellite Rotary Club is an officially sanctioned by Rotary International Club under the charter of a parent club. The Satellite Rotary Club will operate under the parent Rotary Club Charter until such time as the satellite is large enough to petition RI for its own charter. The Satellite Rotary Club will have its own community service projects and fund raisers to support the community service initiatives established by the satellite clubs own board.
 
Satellite club members are listed as Satellite Club members of the parent Rotary club. Instead of a club president, there is a Satellite Club Director who is serving as one of the parent club Board of Directors and working closely with its president and membership committee. 
 
District 5790 now has two officially sanctioned Satellite Rotary Clubs; The Rotary Club of Lewisville Satellite Rotary Club of Little Elm and the Rotary Club of Cleburne Satellite Rotary Club of Cleburne Evening.
District 5790 and all the clubs that participated in our Vocational Hero's recognition program this past year one of the topics of discussion in the latest issue of the Rotary Zones 21 and 27 July, 2017 Newsletter Edition. Check out pages 10 and 11 of the edition. Congratulations to Angie Cox and Eddie Salame and all that participated. When other districts see what we are doing, similar such efforts are sure to follow in their districts.

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,...
