These same skills are needed at the District level to help all District 7150 Rotary Clubs connect with each other, provide clubs with resources, train club leaders, qualify for Rotary grants, and conduct Rotary Youth programs and events. Communications and collaborations among Rotary Clubs in our District rely on you and the leadership qualities that have made you a successful club leader. 
Please step up to visit other Rotary Clubs, Engage in Dialogue and Open Lines of Communication, and Develop Cooperative Service Projects. Your skills, experience, and enthusiasm could help drive new initiatives, create stronger fellowships among all Rotarians, and provide critical support for the success of club and district activities and events.
