President Susan Klear Sets Agenda
This for me has been a week of ﬁrsts: m y ﬁrst meeting as club president, my ﬁrst District Council meeting. And next week, I look forward to another ﬁrst, my ﬁrst club assembly. ! First of all I would like to thank everyone for returning the club surveys. It looks like the part of being a Rotarian is the Fellowship of many interesting people and the Fellowship of doing good work in the community. And because we know that Rotary is committed to service both in our own towns and to the world at large our members are looking for more community involvement. As I have always known we are a group of friendly welcoming people and we enjoy a relaxed camaraderie. ! Some of my goals for this year include, in no order of importance, just what occurs to me as I write: 1) Starting our own interact club. I will be talking more with Janine Payton our new generations service chair so that we can ﬁgure out how to make this happen. I will be looking for volunteers to assist in creating this new club. So those of you who are interested in participating please contact her. This reminds me that it is necessary for our club members to have completed a child protection program
and be ﬁngerprinted. I am interested in ﬁnding out how many people need to complete the class and how many people need to be ﬁngerprinted. I want to look into seeing how we can help club members out toward
THURSDAY, JULY 14 DISTRICT ROAST & TOAST This is a great BBQ event ﬁlled with great food, fellowship, and lots of fun at the ex-Governor’s expense! Contact President Sue if you’d like to go.

completing this and perhaps, depending on how many people are interested, see about having someone come to ﬁngerprinted us at one of our meetings. 2) Being more involved in the community, whether it be Campbell, Willow Glen, West San Jose. I am hoping that we can have our names and faces more recognized in the community. With having an interact club we will be able to participate more in the community by having them be a very important part of our community service team. As we increase our fund raisers, by having not just a food booth at the Campbell art and wine events but the signature event of Valley Flavors and the golf tournament, the major fundraiser started by the Willow Glen club, we

will have more funds to divide up for community projects as well as international projects. Start thinking about some goals you might have for community involvement both ﬁnancially and through volunteerism. I have asked Jerry Ross if he would chair the new veterans assistance program. As you might recall the San Jose Sunrise Club which gave up its charter recently had a program to help the veterans. I am hoping that we can continue this or a similar program which would be a very big help in the community. Please contact Jerry if you're interested in being a member of this committee. John Shannon is the chair of community service so please let him know of your ideas toward that end. Getting more members helping on committees. I remember when I became the vocational chair and I ﬁgured it was just easier for me to take on the responsibility by myself rather than asking other people for their help. To be honest, as the only person on the committee I picked and chose what I wanted to do. Unfortunately there were some things that could've been done that I did not do because of either time or interest. I realize now that I was shortchanging myself and others who might have been interested and willing to help, or even take over the responsibility, to reach those goals that I put on the back burner. I'm even ﬁnding out that we have a lot of members who do things and don't advertise that they're doing them. We have a club that is wonderful in just taking care of things and making things happen. I do however want to see if we can get more people working on committees so that the same person does not have to be doing everything by themselves. Not only does it avoid burnout, but it allows other members to learn what is happening so that instead of keeping a job until burnout we can actually transition a new person into that position easily. New membership. I have asked Adam Beck to chair the membership committee. Chris Young will also be working with him. If we are to continue being a vibrant club in the Campbell area, it is necessary for us to continue growing. Because there are so many young people who are interested in service, I want our Rotary club to be available to them, and I want them to know
about us. At the Rotary convention Michael MacQueen, the author of The ʻNewʼ Rules of Engagement, a guide to understanding and connecting with Generation Y, spoke to us on the importance of growing our clubs with this new generation . He said ʻgeneration Y (those people born between the mid-1960s and early 1980s) want to be a part of something bigger than themselves. This is a group who crave community, truly want to make a difference, and have been raised with the conﬁdence and self-esteem to believe that they really can.ʼ A study in 2005 indicated that ʻover 70% of Gen Ys actively volunteer on a weekly basis. They are actively looking for opportunities to network and connect with mentors in order to gain a competitive edge in their careers.ʼ ʻYoung people will not be attracted to Rotary simply because they want to become a club; they are attracted to clubs because of the beneﬁts and outcomes that membership will lead to.ʼ In other words when the young people ask why you exist as a Rotary club, what they are really asking is what are you achieving; who are you helping; how are you making an impact; what's the point? What will inspire and give impact to this group are the stories and the experiences that you can share of the impact that Rotary has made in your life and the world at large. Rotary represents many of the things this group is looking for. I know that it will be very challenging to capture the interest of this group yet if we are to remain active we must develop new and different ways to help these vital young people ﬁnd us. I think that Adam and Chris, along with others of you who want to be a part of this committee can come up with some wonderful ways to spark an interest in joining us. I think that we have one component that is really signiﬁcant: we have some wonderful mentors in our club who have been vital contributors not only in the community but within their professions. I'm hoping that we can use this talent. As we work toward bringing in new young members I will be asking you to become mentors to them. We have lots of events coming up this weekend, next weekend, and in the weeks to come. Please check your calendars for dates, times, and places. Yours in Rotary, Dr. Sue.
