Week 29. Rotary Minute for week beginning January 19, 2015.
January is Rotary Awareness month. So I will use this theme to introduce a new word:
Rotatunistic – a combination of the words “Rotary” and “opportunistic”. Rotatunistic would be 
defined as the propensity of a Rotarian, or group of Rotarians, to be aware solely for the purpose of 
recognizing and seizing an opportunity to advance the mission of Rotary in a major way. A good 
example of this recently took place when two intelligent and enterprising Rotarians from our District
sat in the owner’s box with Shad Kahn at a Jaguars game. They left the owner’s box with tickets for 
two club seats, donated by Jags owner Shad Kahn, for this year’s Super Bowl in Phoenix. Next, along 
with a few other talented Rotarians in our District, a plan was hatched to auction these tickets. The 
proceeds from this auction will go to the End Polio Now campaign. By being Rotatunistic, the efforts 
of these Rotarians will likely result in an additional $20,000 to $30,000 going toward the End Polio Now campaign!
Being Rotatunistic starts with an awareness for Rotary. What better time of the year than January,
Rotary Awareness month, for all of us to become more Rotatunistic!

Event Reminders:
February 7: Our second Rotary Leadership Institute will be conducted at the Orange Park Campus of 
St. Johns River State College. Be there for the information, for the fellowship and fun, and for the 
outrageously good gourmet food! Yum!!!
March 5-7: Florida Multi-District President-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) in Orlando, FL. PETS is 
also open to Rotaract Presidents-Elect and club leaders – sponsoring clubs should sign them up.

May 8-10: District Conference and Assembly at the Flagler College campus in St. Augustine. Book 
your hotel reservations now because this is the PGA’s TPC weekend and rooms are going fast. We 
will be conducting the Conference on Friday, the Assembly on Saturday and enjoying some fun and 
fellowship on Sunday – at least until noon.

Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
Future leaders ready to become gifts to the world
Incoming district governors said they'll leave this year's International Assembly with a deeper understanding of Rotary's top priorities, including eradicating polio, enhancing Rotary's brand, strengthening the Rotary Foundation, and building a strong and more diverse membership. For Mohamed Adel Hafez, governor-elect of District 2451 (Egypt), the assembly's varied workshops were invaluable. The workshops offered practical information and skills to help district governors-elect perform their duties. "I can speak to my clubs with more authority and knowledge about what needs to be done in the...
Promoting membership with new ideas, even some that challenge tradition
Strengthening Rotary's membership is not just important for incoming district governors, it's critical. That's the message they received from several key speakers at their training event, the 2015 International Assembly in San Diego. For membership to grow, leaders must be willing, for example, to ease stringent club meeting protocols and make other efforts to accommodate a younger, digitally oriented demographic. Seventy percent of Rotary members are 50 years or older, while half of the world's population is under 30, according to Rotary leaders. The contrast shouldn't be something to fear,...
Despite global success for Rotary’s brand, still work to do in the community
On a global scale Rotary's brand is strong, said Rotary leaders speaking at the International Assembly on Monday in San Diego. From governments to worldwide NGOs to large corporations, Rotary is trusted to create positive change around the world. But Rotary's image needs strengthening in local communities, said RI Director-elect Jennifer E. Jones. "We are the greatest story never told," Jones said. "Quite simply, strengthening our brand is essential to Rotary's future." "For so long we did our good work quietly and not for recognition," added Jones, a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-...
