Its show time….and let the journey begin. I am sure after making a difference serving humanity we are now ready to be the inspiration. And it is my profound pleasure to welcome you on board as together we commence our journey to "Be the Inspiration". First and foremost, I gracefully acknowledge the contributions of past DGs and leadership teams of District 9630, for their hard work, vision, and dreams, which have led to many achievements for not only our district but also Rotary as a whole. This has led to the establishment of a very strong foundation based on which we have continued to serve humanity and make a difference. Rotary’s new vision statement is "Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves"To achieve this vision, RI President Barry Rassin has said that Rotarians must take care of our 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." You are the custodians of the Rotary.We will forge ahead in this journey to create a desire for something greater. The drive to do more, to be more, to create something that will live beyond each of us. This is the legacy.To achieve this vision, our International President-Elect said, Rotarians must take care of the organisation: “We are a membership organisation first. 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.” President Barry has asked us to LEAP in to the focus areas of Rotary International: •Support and Strengthening our Clubs•Focus and Increase Humanitarian Service •Enhance Public Image and Awareness I am certain that as custodians and brand ambassadors of Rotary International, each member will embrace, live and love the theme. In the last few weeks I have attended a number of club changeovers and I am more than excited to say that our organisation remains in very safe and capable hands, as the leadership of clubs have established their plans for the year ahead. The excitement within the member base is beaming. The presidents and the board realise they are in an unparalleled position create a legacy and leave “a foot print” of their own. I am truly inspired by this. My commitment at being inspired and my total enthusiasm will hopefully pass onto all Rotarians and together we will achieve to gift this “footprint” from 2019 to future Presidents and Boards.I wish each one of you an inspirational year, filled with immense fun, reward and enjoyment as we strive to serve above self. I sincerely hope that this year you will find your Rotary Moment and or find another Rotary Moment. It's show time...lets enjoy….and remember we are:One VisionOne MissionAnd with One RhythmOne RotaryYIRSJitendra PrasadDistrict Governor 2018-2019 E: email@example.com Ph: 07-38092055Mob: 0402422777

As a general description, District 9630 encompasses Brisbane suburbs south of the Brisbane River, east to the bay side, south to Logan and west to the Queensland-South Australia border, capturing a bit of northern New South Wales along the way. Click here to find a club in your area.
Rotary International is the world's first service club organisation with more than 1.2 million members in more than 35,000 clubs worldwide.Rotary is a non-political, non-religious organisation open to every race, culture and creed. Members are ordinary people working together to make the world a better place.
Our District consists of 52 clubs and almost 1200 Rotarians covering an area from Redland Bay, south of the Brisbane River to Beenleigh, along the western line to Charleville and south to St George. Each club has its own unique character, its own short and long term goals and projects, its own mixture of members, gender, ages, vocations and experience but the one thing that unites us all is the desire to serve and to make a difference in the world. Rotary’s core values are service, fellowship, diversity, Integrity and leadership. These core values form the foundation on which we perform and conduct ourselves. They define what we stand for and inspire us to support the ideal of Service above Self. As the world is changing, we too as an organisation, need to change or adapt, however, our core values will never change.In the 2017-18 Rotary year our theme was Rotary Making a Difference and we were encouraged to broaden our horizon. This year, 2018-19 our goal is to Be The Inspiration in the world, in our communities and in the lives of others. How we do this is up to each individual and each club but the one common factor in everything we do is our commitment to our core values and the ideal of service above self.We live in a changing world, the way we act, communicate and conduct our daily lives is changing. If Rotary is to grow and prosper in this changing world then we need to adapt to these changes. We need to be relevant to our membership and to the members we are trying to attract to our organisation. I am honoured and privileged to serve you as your District Governor for 2018-19. I know each and everyone one of you have commitments outside Rotary, to family and friends and to work, and rightly so. I ask that you do what you can and when you can, to help make a difference in our communities and across the world.YIRSJitendra PrasadDistrict Governor 2018-2019 E: firstname.lastname@example.org Ph: 07-38092055Mob: 0402422777
