Dear Club President,
I am happy to congratulate you on your installation to the office of 2014–15, President of your Rotary club.
Your office is important not just for the tasks you perform, but for the leadershipyou provide. As an officer in your club, you serve as an example—of motivation,engagement, and service.
Rotary’s global leadership may help set priorities and chart a course, but it is you,at the club level, who hold Rotary’s future in your hands. It is at the club levelthat we succeed or fail, because it is at the club level that members becomeexcited about service, and pull together to make change.
No one knows your members, or your community, better than you do yourself,and you have the opportunity to harness that knowledge and your leadership roleto generate enthusiasm for Rotary’s mission. In Rotary we find solutions, notexcuses. Committed members make a strong club, and strong clubs make Rotaryshine.
Each Rotary year is a new beginning, a new chance to strive for greatness. I wish you every success in your new role, as we work together to Light Up Rotary.
Gary C.K. Huang
2014-15 President, Rotary International
