2018-19 RI President Barry Rassin
wants Rotary members to
"Be the Inspiration"
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Rotary International President-elect Barry Rassin laid out his vision for the future of the organization at the International Assembly, calling on Rotary leaders to work for a sustainable future and to inspire Rotarians and the community at large.
 
Rassin, a member of the Rotary Club of East Nassau, New Providence, Bahamas, unveiled the 2018-19 presidential theme, Be the Inspiration, to incoming district governors at Rotary's International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA. "I want you to inspire in your clubs, your Rotarians, that desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us."
 
Rassin stressed the power of Rotary's new vision statement, "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change - across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves." This describes the Rotary that leaders must help build, he said.
 
To achieve this vision, the president-elect said, Rotarians must take care of the organization: “We are a membership organization first. And if we want to be able to serve, if we want to succeed in our goals — we have to take care of our members first.”
 
Rassin asked the incoming district governors to “inspire the club presidents, and the Rotarians in your districts, to want to change. To want to do more. To want to reach their own potential. It’s your job to motivate them — and help them find their own way forward.”
 
Rassin also looked ahead to Rotary after Polio.
