Frank Ortiz
Frank pulled double duty today as he not only ran the meeting, but was also the program. Not only is Frank a past President, but he is also a past District Governor. He spoke to the membership about what it takes to have an effective Rotary club. He boiled it down to four key attributes. 1. Sustain and increase the membership base. 2. Implement successful projects that address the needs of it's community and communities in other countries. 3. Support The Rotary Foundation through both program participation and financial contributions. 4. Develop leaders capable of serving Rotary beyond club level. During his presentation he gave many examples of each category. Thanks Frank! We are very lucky to have you as a member.
