My Team 10-11
Rtn. Madhukar Malhotra District Governor Rotary International District 3080
AS WE WALK TOGETHER
ongratulations to IPDG Chetan Aggarwal and his team for a great year – he has established new benchmarks for us to breach and I look forward to team 2010-11 to work with commitment and continuity in taking forward the projects and programs of Rotary in the Year Ahead. We must keep the core values of Rotary – Service, Fellowship, Diversity, Integrity and Leadership – in sight as we embark on our journey together. We have just one year but it is an opportunity of a life time to leave a permanent footprint in the history of our clubs and district, by giving life to the plans, projects and programs we have discussed for the past few months and other plans you may have in conformity with rotary values at the club and your local community. Together we can make BIGGER BETTER BOLDER clubs as we make progress in execution of our plans for the year. Do interact with the Assistant Governors and zone committee chair to nominate your club representatives on the zone committee so that a large number of Rotarians are involved in the planning and executions of projects and programs. Every Rotarian is a leader in his own right and I appeal to all members of the rotary family of district 3080 to join hands and make the year ahead an outstanding success. Pre-PETS, SETS, DTTS, AGTS, PETS, District Assembly and the Membership Development Seminar were all well attended and successful. We also had a workshop on the Rotary Foundation with the Assistant Governors and members of the TRF Committee to discuss and plan some new initiatives in TRF and Polio to clear some misgivings and bring new energy to the TRF and Polio Programs. This would be further discussed by them at the zonal committee meetings. I expect all the zone chairs and AGs to conduct zonal workshops preferably before July end. I look forward to hear from the zone committee chairs on the deliberations and activity plans worked out by you to translate plans into reality. In July clubs must install the new teams and are encouraged to hold blood donation camps in their respective communities. Let us dedicate our selves in the year ahead to translate the vision of our leader RI President Ray Klinginsmith in “Building Communities – Bridging Continents”. Jai Ho! Yours in Rotary Service,
Madhukar Malhotra District Governor
