Happy Rotary New Year! 2018-2019

laquita-striblingMy name is Laquita (pronounced La-Key-Ta) Stribling.  I am honored and humbled to serve as the District Governor for the 2018-2019 Rotary year.  I am excited to serve alongside all of the Rotarians in District 6760 who are doing amazing work across  Middle TN, West TN, and around the world.

This year, my focus will be:
*Growing membership (add at least 3 new clubs)
*Enhancing member engagement (conduct a member survey to assess expectations and identify gaps)
*Building the pathway to Rotary through our Interact, and Rotaract Programs (add at least 2 new Rotaract and Interact Clubs)
*Increasing awareness around diversity, inclusion, and belonging (be intentional with programming and creating a safe place for dialogue and information)
*Increasing our giving to the foundation to support the finals stages of Ending Polio and work in the other areas of the 5 Avenues of Service (add 25 Paul Harris Society *Members; 25 new Bequest Society members; and 100% of clubs giving to the foundation
*75% of Clubs earning the Presidential Citation

As you can see, we have a very busy year planned.  I am already so thankful to the Assistant Governor Coordinators, the  Assistant Governors, the Committee Chairs, the Club Presidents and Officers, the College of Governors, and every Rotarian in the district.

Attached, you will find my biography, my headshot, the FINAL club visit schedule, and the criteria for the Presidential Citation.

If you are available on Saturday, July 14th, I hope that you will come out to Nashville’s Music City Center to celebrate the  beginning of the new Rotary year and my installation as DG.  For more information and to RSVP, please go to www.nashvillerotary.org and click on Sign Up Genius (near the top of the page).

I appreciate your support for and confidence in me AND I appreciate your heart for serving others above self.  Let’s continue to Be the Inspiration!
