Interact Clubs in D-7020


Greetings District 7020 Leadership Team:

I join DG Vance in welcoming you to your year in office! 

As the 2012-13 District Interact Chair, let me share with you the responsibilities of my position:

  • Help develop District goals specific to Interact clubs
  • Coordinate club projects to support District goals
  • Develop a “Plan of Action” to achieve these goals with a District Interact Committee
  • Provide support and guidance to Rotary clubs that sponsor Interact clubs
  • Relay information between Rotary International and District 7020 as it relates to Interact Programs

In April 2010, Rotary International declared a fifth Avenue of Service—New Generations.  The Avenue of New Generations recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults involved in leadership development activities, community and international service projects, and exchange programs that enrich and foster world peace and cultural understanding.

 To continue Rotary International’s on-going efforts to fully engage youth, all clubs in District 7020 are urged to begin or continue an Interact project.

It is our intent to have a very successful year and in doing so, we must plan, implement, and follow through with our goals for 2012-13.  

Warmest Rotary Regards

Cheryl George-Chance

Past Assistant Governor (2009-12)

District 7020, U.S.V.I. North

Past President, Rotary St. Thomas II
