District 5910 Membership & Foundation Training Seminar
September 20, 2014

WOW!  We are expecting nearly 150 Rotarians from throughout the district to be in attendance at the upcoming District 5910 Membership & Foundation Training Seminar.   Scheduled for Saturday, September 20, 2014 in League City --- this event is a perfect opportunity for you to network with other Rotarians and find out what other clubs are doing to grow membership and enhance contributions to The Rotary Foundation.

We're very excited to have more than 14 breakout topics/sessions for Rotarians to attend; as well as a fantastic slate of speakers.   Dr. Miles

McCall, a nationally known keynote motivational speaker (and Rotarian) will kick off the program; followed by small concurrent break out sessions to provide tactical workshops

We ask that those who may be planning to attend -- to please help us out by getting their registrations immediately -- so we may make final plans for printing and meals.   However, walk-up registrations on Saturday, September, 20 will be accepted (you just won't have a printed name tag).   If you register on-line (www.Rotary5910.org) you may pay with a credit card -- or you may bring a check, payable to DISTRICT 5910 with you to the event.     

Please share this information at your club meeting this week and next.    

Thank you.

For District 5910

SEPTEMBER 30: DEADLINE FOR TEAM MEMBER            APPLICATIONS

District Exchange with New Zealand

District 5910 will have a Group Study Exchange with Rotary District 9980, located in the southern half of the South Island of New Zealand, widely thought to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The exchange trip will be from May 7 through June 6, 2015. Here's a sample photo of one of their cities, copied from the district website.  
Near Wairaki, Southland, New Zealand

We have a new Team Leader for the Group Study Exchange (GSE) Team! The GSE Committee met Sunday, August 24, in Cleveland and interviewed 12 applicants for Team Leader of next spring's GSE Team.  Jerry Springfield (left) of the Woodville club was selected Team Leader, and Chris Turner (right) of the Friendswood club was selected as Alternate.


Jerry and Chris now join the GSE Committee, as attention turns to recruiting applicants for the four Team Members to fill out the team, which will travel to District 9980 in New Zealand (South Island) from May 7 to June 6, 2015. 

All D5910 Rotarians are encouraged to share the GSE story with potential applicants. Clubs are asked to publicize the opportunity via newspaper, radio, television, and social media. Click here for application/commitment forms.

The GSE Team Member applicants must:

1.  Not be a Rotarian or a lineal descendant (including step-children) of a current Rotarian
2.  Be between the age of 25 and 40
3.  Be currently employed
4.  Live or work in D5910
5.  Complete and submit the application/commitment form by September 30
6.  Participate in a personal interview on October 19
7.  Participate in training/preparation meetings on weekends between selection and departure, and attend the D5910 district conference on May 2, 2015
8.  Commit to traveling to New Zealand during the entire exchange trip, May 7 to June 6, 2015, and attending up to 3 Rotary club meetings after returning, to give a presentation on the trip
9.  Acquire a passport, VISA (if required), medical exam/certificate, and traveler's insurance at their own expense. Round trip air travel, as well as in-country room, board, travel and entertainment will be paid by Rotary sources.

All applications must be submitted to GSE Committee Chair John Delaney of the Bryan club,
j_delaney@verizon.net, by September 30.

 

Truly, this is an experience of a lifetime. No exaggeration - - just fact. It's an opportunity to see a beautiful and interesting country in a most unique way. During the trip you live in the homes of Rotarians, and only occasionally in a hotel. They show you their country in a way that no tour can offer. You experience where they live, work, and play, and see the sights that are special to them. It costs you almost nothing. Our district pays for round trip air fare. The host district pays for the rest.

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS

PDG Dave Johnson has issued the “call for applications” for the open District Governor Nominee-Designate (DGN-D) position, which will determine the governor for our district during the 2017-18 Rotary year.

The current Governor succession is as follows:

2014-15 Don Taylor – Rotary Club of Liberty

2015-16 Doris Lockey – Rotary Club of Lake Conroe

2016-17 Gig Langston – Rotary Club of Angelina (Lufkin)

2017-18 to be determined

The application period for District Governor for the Rotary Year 2017-18 is now open and will remain so through January 31, 2015.

As a reminder, a committee – consisting of DG Don Taylor, PDG Brenda Walker, PDG Dave Johnson, DGE Doris Lockey, DGN Gig Langston, and others will interview each of the qualified candidates and make the selection for confirmation at the 5910 District MidYear meeting February 7, 2015, or, if necessary, through an e-mail process.

To nominate a candidate, fill out the attached application form, signed by the candidate and endorsed by the secretary of the candidate’s home club. I would also like for the candidates, themselves, to submit a 1-2 page summary of their leadership and Rotary experiences, and other reasons why they feel they are a particularly strong candidate for office. A 1-2 page statement may not afford a full listing of the candidate’s qualifications, but further opportunity to share such information will be provided during the interview process.

Links are available on the district website that address qualifications, duties, etc.

Send the Governor-nominee Form and 1-2 page leadership bio/statement to:

DG Don Taylor
Rotary District 5910
1124 CR 2368
Liberty, TX  77575
Dontaylor44@gmail.com
Submission deadline: All nomination forms and statements must be postmarked (or emailed) by January 31, 2015.

I would suggest that anyone considering submitting themselves for nomination should seek the counsel of a Past District Governor to discuss the rewards, challenges and responsibilities that are involved with the position. Consideration of such matters will help prepare the candidate for the interview process and, ultimately, for service as District Governor.

Any questions can be referred to me (Dave Johnson) at: (979) 775-3587 or (979) 219-4499 (cell)

Thank you for being part of the process that will ensure strong leadership for our district in the years ahead.

PDG Dave Johnson
Chair, District Nominating Committee
800 Bob White St.

Welcome to the newest Inbound Rotary Exchange Students!
(View in full screen to read the captions.)
The students arrived, one-by-one, and were eagerly welcomed by host parents, host siblings, counselors, friends and others.  The District clubs are anxious to meet and greets, and extend a warm Texas welcome to each one. We have much to learn from one another, and knowledge brings understanding and peace in the world.
