District Governor John & Christine Weiss
I’m truly honored to serve the District as your Governor for 2017-18. We all owe our great appreciation to Past District Governor Nick Frankle for his leadership and passion during this past year as our District continued to evolve, and our clubs thrived.  As we look forward to the new Rotary year, I hope we can all embrace Rotary International President Ian Riseley’s theme of Rotary: Making a Difference. Because that’s what our clubs and Rotarians do every day – make a real and significant difference in people’s lives throughout the world.  
We are planning some amazing events during the next year, starting with our District Conference in beautiful Ventura October 6-8, 2017, where we’ll gather together to "Celebrate Rotary", my theme for the year. During the year, we’ll be supporting our high school students by convening an Interact District Conference, and bringing together young professionals with an Emerging Leaders’ Symposium.
We’ll be conducting training for our current and incoming club officers and celebrating The Rotary Foundation with regional Foundation Gala events.  
My staff and I are always available to help our clubs with anything they may need during the year, from assistance with membership, grant or projects to providing speakers on all aspects of Rotary.  Just ask!
I look forward to seeing all of you during my club visits as we Celebrate Rotary and make a difference around the world.
Yours in Service,
John Weiss
