It is a new term. A new beginning.
Perhaps it is also a good time for us to ponder over some questions that we should be asking ourselves.
“Where Leaders Are Made”. What kind of leaders are we talking about?
“We build new clubs and support all clubs in achieving excellence”. Do we “create” (instead of build) new clubs just to make up the numbers to be Distinguished? Do we “support” clubs by paying their membership dues so that the clubs do not fold up in the current term?
We want to be a President’s Distinguished District that is built on a solid foundation. We need leaders who will do the right things and will do them right. We need leaders who uphold our core values of Integrity, Respect, Service and Excellence. We need leaders who put the benefits to our members as their top priority, instead of blindly chasing the numbers.
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing, and our main thing is Integrity, Respect, Service and Excellence.
