Each year in January, around 530 Rotary District Governors-Elect representing 35,000 Rotary clubs and over 1.2 million Rotarians from around the world gather in San Diego, California, USA. At this week long event they meet the Rotary International President-Elect, prepare for their year to lead their respective Rotary districts and share Rotary at the International Assembly. Rotary's annual training meeting gives incoming district governors the chance to share ideas for strengthening clubs and improving communities with Rotary leaders from around the world.
 
Keynote speakers and informative presentations will inspire them and prepare them to lead their district successfully. Idea exchanges, roundtable discussions, and workshops will lead them to new ways of creating positive change.
 
The following brief video summarizes what incoming governors can expect to see and do at the International Assembly. (Click on "Read more..." below to expand & continue).

Rotary International President's Theme
 
One of the highlights of the International Assembly is the unveiling ot the RI President's Theme. Rotary’s founder, Paul Harris, believed that serving humanity is “the most worthwhile thing a person can do,” RI President-elect John F. Germ said, and that being a part of Rotary is a “great opportunity” to make that happen.
 
Germ unveiled the 2016-17 presidential theme, Rotary Serving Humanity, to incoming district governors on 18 January at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA.

Mitty Chang on Technology & Membership
 
Mitty was one of the presenters at the International Assembly and spoke on the future of technology and innovation in Rotary and how to attract millennials into Rotary. I have known Mitty since we met at the 2011 Pre Convention Rotaract Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. I had the privilege of serving with the onsite site RI staff as head Rotaract guide. I just recently got to see Mitty at Rotary's World Peace Conference 2016 only days before he gave his presentation at one of the General Sessions at the International Assembly.
 
Mitty is the Creative Director & Founder of Candeavor, a marketing & web design agency based in the Silicon Valley. He helps his clients build their online brand and digital identity and speaks to groups on how to attract millennials into their organizations.
 
Shortly after graduating from the University of California, Davis in 2010 with a B.A. in Political Science & Communications, Mitty began traveling around the world speaking at different Rotary and Rotaract events on the issue of membership and attracting millennials into the Rotary family. He began his journey in the Rotary family in 2005 as an Interactor, and later chartered two Rotaract clubs, eventually serving as District Rotaract Representative (DRR) in District 5160.
 
He has attended 7 Rotary International Conventions, is a Paul Harris Fellow, a past Assistant Rotary Public Image Coordinator, and a past Rotary District Public Image Chair.  Mitty currently serves as the Trustee Chair of the Big West Rotaract MDIO and is President-elect of the Rotary E-Club of Silicon Valley.
 
Enjoy his presentation and his "Gift to the World."
