Welcome to Rotary District 7780

District Governor: John LoBosco

District 7780 is seeking applicants for our Rotary year 2021-2022 District Governor and candidates for the District Finance Committee.

One of the most important decisions we make as a District is choosing our future leaders; we are seeking the most qualified person for the position of District Governor for the Rotary Year 2021-2022. If you have a demonstrated history of leadership and collaboration as a Rotarian and are willing to share your passion and talents as our District Governor, please seriously consider this opportunity.  If you know a Rotarian with these qualities, please encourage them to consider serving in this important leadership position.

Do Not Miss this Exciting Opportunity for Your Family to be involved in Rotary Youth Exchange! The District is kicking off a Rotary Short Term Youth Exchange for the summer of 2019.

This is a great opportunity for your family to send your high school student to France, Italy or another foreign country and host the foreign student from that country for 3-4 weeks here in New England. This is also a great opportunity for your club to get involved in exchange on a short-term basis with little expense. Short Term Youth Exchange involves two high school students, one from the US and one from another country, and their families pair up. The US student travels to and is hosted by the foreign family for 3-4 weeks. Then the two students travel together to the US where the foreign student is hosted for 3-4 weeks before returning home.

The District Vision and Planning Committee is hosting the 11th in our series of “Vision to Plan” Workshops on Thursday, September 27, 2018. 

We have a new agenda! If you answer YES to any of the following you need to be part of this workshop:

My club did the Visioning Program within the last couple of years and…

  • It Worked!
  • We never got to first base!
  • It could use a dusting off!
  • My club plans on Visioning in the next year.

What is Visioning?

We are asking clubs that had vision events to join in working dialogues with other clubs.   If your club is struggling with creating a plan, struggling with SMART goals or somehow “road blocked” with planning or implementation, THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU!  The training will benefit new and experienced club leaders, committee members, and new Rotarians who are looking to make a difference.  The skills developed will lead to stronger and more engaged clubs.
