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 Image

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.

Welcome to the newest Inbound Rotary Exchange Students!
(Try viewing 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.

Dates changed for 2015 São Paulo Convention

Rotary International President Gary Huang and the RI Board have changed the dates for the 2015 Rotary Convention in São Paulo, Brazil, to Saturday, 6 June, through Tuesday, 9 June – starting and ending one day earlier than previously scheduled. The dates were changed because the original opening day (Sunday, 7 June) coincided with one of the city's most popular parades.

"Light Up Rotary is our theme, but it is more than our theme. It is how we live in Rotary, how we think in Rotary, how we feel, how we work," Huang said. "It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, every district, and every country where we serve."

Confucius once said: "It is better to light a single candle, than to sit and curse the darkness." Although the Chinese philosopher died nearly 2,400 years before Rotary was founded, RI President 2014/15 Gary C.K. Huang calls him "the world's first Rotarian." Inspired by his teachings, Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15.
