I am the Marketing and Business Development Manager for Golden Empire Transit District. I have been a Rotarian for 16 years. I am a Past President and Past Assistant Governor and in 15-16, I was the Executive Assistant Governor for Region 1. This year I am the District Membership Chair.

My goal for 16-17 is to help the clubs in our District grow by providing tools that help them evaluate their strengths and weaknesses, effectively engage their members and recruit new members!

The role of the Regional District Membership Advisor is to assist the clubs in their region to meet their growth, involvement, development, leadership and retention goals.

An effective club is able to:

  • Sustain and increase its membership base
  • Implement successful projects that address the needs of its community and communities in other countries
  • Support The Rotary Foundation through both program participation and financial contributions
  • Develop club leaders from within the Club, and leaders capable of serving Rotary beyond the club level
