General secretary and treasurer reports now available
The reports given to the 2014 Rotary International Convention in Sydney by General Secretary John Hewko and Rotary International Treasurer Andy Smallwood are now available. Hewko and Smallwood addressed the convention during today's business session, which also included the election of President-nominee K.R. Ravindran, 2015-17 RI directors, and 2015-16 district governors.
Hewko gave a promising update on our fight to eradicate polio and highlighted our new digital resources for members — Rotary Brand Center and Rotary.org.
In the treasurer's report, Smallwood predicted that fiscal 2014 will be another year of financial stability despite challenges in reaching our membership goals. He also stressed the need for every member to "grow our Rotary community so that we may all continue to perform the good work that Rotary does throughout the world while remaining financially secure."
