Greetings From Martin Mandelberg - July 2021

I am proud to serve as your San Jose East/Evergreen (SJE/E) Rotary Club President for 2021- 2022. While a Rotarian for just two years, I have been a Board Officer on profit and non-profit organizations for 30 years. My education has been in Engineering, Management, and Strategy with 50 years of service in government, private industry, and academia.
I have been called a creative optimist, and I wear that label proudly. Creativity and persistence can overcome many obstacles. To be a pessimist is to waste energy in non-productive efforts.
My education and work experience have helped my career and benefited my wonderful family. But just as important as accomplishments are aspirations.
Starting in July 2021, I plan to listen to each SJE/E club member and learn what characteristics they want their club to have now and in the future, and especially hear about their aspirations. I ask you to reflect on your aspirations and work with the other members to build our club to meet all members' goals. An energized club can attract proactive new members who wish to serve and have fun as we re-grow SJE/E.
My job is to serve all the members and use leadership, organizational, and mentoring knowledge. We all deserve ethical treatment, respect, accountability, transparency, and responsiveness. Comments and suggestions for improvements are crucial as we strive to be of practical service to others. With all of your active participation in Avenues of Service and Club projects, we can build on SJE/E's excellent reputation in District 5170 and become the Rotary Club we want to invest our time and energy. I offer a suggested goal motto: "The Best Small Rotary Club in California."
Thank you in advance for your thoughts, efforts, and continued support.
Yours in Rotary

Coming Soon to RI's My Rotary

New district enhancements coming to My Rotary
Members will soon be able to review district information from a dedicated landing page on My Rotary. In a few weeks, you’ll easily see which clubs and members are part of your district. This enhancement is part of the ongoing upgrades being made to the site. Throughout 2021, we’ll continue to improve your My Rotary experience by:
  • Making district officer and assistant governor information more easily accessible
  • Improving the process for district officers to report, remove, and replace district officers
  • Simplifying the assistant governor appointment process
  • Introducing a dashboard for governors that presents key district information in a visually meaningful way
  • Updating the process for managing district conferences and obtaining feedback
  • Recognizing members who have sponsored a certain number of new members
These new features will be released throughout the year.

Incoming RI Presidential Theme

Focus for July 2021

Rotary has identified a theme for each month except July. July is the first month of the Rotary year and is when the annual theme kicks in.


Mehta: serving others changes lives

Incoming RI President Shekhar Mehta, a member of the Rotary Club of Calcutta-Mahanagar, West Bengal, India, revealed the 2021-22 presidential theme, Serve to Change Lives, at this week’s virtual Rotary International Assembly. He urged district governors-elect to become more involved in service projects, saying that caring for and serving others is the best way to live because it changes not only other people’s lives, but also our own. 

What DO we stand for?
