RI President Mark Maloney 2019-20

2019-2020 Rotary Theme Announced
RI President Maloney said "The first emphasis is to grow Rotary — to grow our service, to grow the impact of our projects, but most importantly, to grow our membership so that we can achieve more."
He believes that connection is at the heart of the Rotary experience. This year's theme is ROTARY CONNECTS THE WORLD.
“(Rotary) allows us to connect with each other, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences,” Maloney said. “It connects us to people we would never otherwise have met, who are more like us than we ever could have known. It connects us to our communities, to professional opportunities, and to the people who need our help.”
