President’s Letter – May 14, 2020

Dear Fellow Rotarians,
There’s been a strong wind blowin’ every evening this week. The winds of change, perhaps? Before we know it, this Rotary year will come to a close and a new one, full of opportunity and possibility, will begin. But we aren’t done yet!

Last week, our discussion with Assemblymember Limón was interesting, thought provoking, and informative. As she mentioned, if anyone has any additional questions or needs assistance with unemployment benefits, or help with any other state agency, you can contact her office at (805) 564-1549 or email
This week, Eric Zackrison, PhD will discuss leadership in the context of the coronavirus pandemic and the spread of Covid-19. Eric is a lecturer in UCSB’s Technology Management program, and President and CEO of IDI.US Inc.

We will also have a short presentation from Chelsea Duffer, Executive Director of Partners In Education. Chelsea will brief us on how her organization is adapting and serving teachers and students in the face of challenges presented by the pandemic.
Finally, a note on Vocational Service from district co-chairs, Larry Borovay and John Bagnall. They are offering to help Rotarians and their family members whose jobs have been displaced because of the COVID-19 crisis. If you or other members of our club are in need of employment, you may submit resumes to and the vocational team will try to pair them up with employers within our district.  In the words of our District Governor “A referral from a Rotarian is worth its weight in gold”.
