What an outstanding choice that RI has made, in selecting Michele for this important role. I remember her in many of the other roles she has held and done so well. I particularly recall her cool and calm coordination of my 'concentrated training' as a Rotary Coordinator for my year, in 2012. CONGRATULATIONS.
I have had the pleasure of working with Michele over many years and could not be more pleased for her and for Rotary. She is an extraordinary inspiring leader with a dedication and commitment that results in exceptional cooperation among staff and volunteers. Her warm, sincere and patient demeanor engratiate her to all who have had the priviledge to work with her. Our sincerest congratulations.
