Keynote Speaker:

Ian Riseley, Past Rotary International President 2017-18

Rotary International President Ian H.S. Riseley made protecting the environment and curbing climate change essential part of Rotary’s goal of sustainable service. During his term as the organization's top leader, he challenged every Rotary club to make a difference by planting a tree for each of its members: more than 1.2 million trees. At this year's Virtual District Assembly, PRIP Riseley will discuss how District 5150 can "Serve Others to Change Lives" in the 2021-22 Rotary year.
