In 2017 TWU chartered it's first Rotaract club thanks to the founding officers familiar to Rotary.  The founding president was a former Rotary exchange student from Chile and two other officers were Interact members in high school.  Year two looks very promising!   twurotaract@gmail.com


Rotarians please remind your RYLA participants and college scholarship recipients about potential Rotaract clubs at the college they are attending or plan on attending.  To assist in starting a new Rotaract club go to:  https://www.rotary.org/en/get-involved/rotaract-clubs

As District Governor Gerald Robinson travels the district, you’ll hear him speak about one of District 5790’s goals for this year, which is for every club to be active with an initiative addressing homelessness.
We know that you are community service driven as a natural part of embodying “SERVICE ABOVE SELF”, so you may already have these connections to community providers. IF you need it, as your Community Service Assistance Team, we will help connect your club to organizations in your area that provide services to the homeless and unsheltered.

Community Service Assistance Team Captain
As we start the new 2018 rotary year we have already started looking towards the 2019/20 Youth Exchange Year.  

We have re-branded the year YE program as the District 5790 Youth Exchange Scholarship Program.  The scholarship brand is being used because what we are able to offer through the YE program is; free room and board, free tuition at a school in a host country and a monthly stipend while in that country.  The monetary value of this alone is approximately $15,000.  If we add in the value of living abroad for up to a year, learning a new language and developing resume building life skills then the value is incalculable!  

We owe it to the students of our district to share this opportunity with them. 
If your club sponsors an Interact Club at your local High School I would love the opportunity to come and speak about the Youth Exchange Scholarship Program.  
The sooner in the year we can get this information to the students the better to determine if they are candidates.  We will conduct district interviews in November and December and students need time to think about their options. 

I look forward to hearing from the Interact coordinator at your club!

Did you know that District 5790 has a team of volunteers dedicated to helping clubs implement Rotary Technology?
Without a doubt, new technology can be frustrating. That is why District Governor Gerald Robinson and the Training/Technology Team Captain John Pokorny have put together a team of Rotary members from club throughout the district dedicated to helping your club implement Rotary Technology like Rotary Club Central in Rotary.org and ClubRunner in the District and Club websites. The team is made up of past presidents and club secretaries that have successfully applied some or all of these tools in their clubs. Club executives are encouraged to contact a team member to share their experience with these tools.
Team Members are:
Failing to Plan is a Planning to Fail - Ben Franklin
Many of the districts 70 clubs have been hard at work this past month, doing their strategic planning and recording this years club goals and objectives in Rotary Club Central. Without a doubt, the leadership of these clubs are members that come from businesses where planning and tracking of business goals is a daily fact of life.  So, quite naturally, if they are going to volunteer and invest their time, talent and treasure in community service through Rotary, those same business tracking principles should apply.
