2020 International Assembly Update
By DGE Becky Mason
Chuck and I just returned from a whirlwind, information overload trip to San Diego for International Assembly.  Each year, all 500+ district governors-elect from all over the world attend this intensive 6-day training led by the incoming International President and about 100 highly skilled Rotary leaders who serve as discussion facilitators.  We learned so much from Rotary leaders from around the world, and we returned with a renewed enthusiasm to, as President-elect Holger Knaack says, GROW ROTARY!
The highlight of the first day’s sessions was the announcement of PE Holger’s theme for the year, Rotary Opens Opportunities.  Over the next few months, you will be hearing more about this theme and the ways that we will use it to direct our work in the district next year. 
For now, be thinking about the opportunities that Rotary has opened for you in your business, professional, and personal life as well as the opportunities that Rotary has opened for the people you have served through your club’s service projects.
