Rotary Connects the World
Mark Daniel Maloney, RI President for 2019-2020, announced his Rotary year theme at the annual Rotary training in San Diego - Rotary Connects the World.
A member of the Rotary Club of Decatur, Alabama, Maloney encouraged leaders to embrace innovative membership models and expand community connections. Most importantly, he feels that connection is at the heart of the Rotary experience:
(Rotary) allows us to connect with each other, in deep and meaningful ways, across our differences...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.
To learn more, you can view Maloney's speech from the San Diego event.
