Approximately 350 Rotarians and guests will have the opportunity to hear the future President of Rotary International speak during the Show Me Rotary Leadership Institute from March 29-30 in Jefferson City (Missouri, US).
Mark Daniel Maloney will lead Rotary International in 2019-20.
He has chosen “Rotary Connects the World” as his theme for the year, and his keynote address at the Friday night banquet at the Capitol Plaza Hotel will be “Together We Connect, Together We Grow,” according to a news release.
Maloney, of Decatur, Alabama, served as a director of Rotary International from 1999-2001 and a trustee of The Rotary Foundation from 2004-08.
The Show Me Rotary Leadership Institute, which comprises three Rotary districts from across the state working cooperatively, is in its 41st year of providing training for future Rotary Club presidents and club leaders in Missouri.
This cooperation makes it possible to attract senior Rotary leaders from around the nation and world.
During the institute, Rotarians will receive training on topics such as leading volunteers, engaging in humanitarian projects, building strong clubs, assessing and serving a community’s needs, and working collaboratively with other organisations.
Missouri has 157 Rotary clubs and approximately 7,000 members statewide.
As President of Rotary International, Maloney will lead a worldwide organisation comprising 1.2 million Rotarians in 35,000 clubs in 200 different countries.
