We've been zooming along for a while now.  Many of our clubs are looking forward to re-connecting in person.  But what if some of your club members have truly embraced remote meetings?  The next era of Rotary meetings are hybrid's.  That's right, a combination of in person and remote.  It's another new frontier! If you want to learn how to run great hybrid meeting so everyone is present, either remotely or in the room, please watch this special edition of Tech Tuesday Talks.  You'll hear from seasoned Rotarians who will show and tell what it takes to make a hybrid meeting great.  Learn from those in the know, best practices for sharing presentations, speakers, voice and background.  Gain from the experience of others.  Questions you may have, like "can you just put a laptop at the front of the room or do you need special technology or hardware?"  "Is it costly?"  "How "techy" does one need to be to run a hybrid meeting?"  Join us for answers to these and many other questions so your club can zoom into the frontier of hybrid Rotary meetings. The future is bright - it's hybrid!  Watch it on the Rotary District You Tube Channel today    https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=rotary+district+7070  .

Rotary and our Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) partners have launched the Polio Eradication Strategy 2022-2026: Delivering on a Promise to overcome the remaining challenges to ending polio, including last year’s increase in polio cases caused by a pause in vaccination campaigns due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Leaders from Pakistan and Afghanistan — the last two countries where wild polio remains endemic — have recommitted to working with the GPEI to improve vaccination campaigns and reach at-risk children. As long as polio exists anywhere, it remains a threat everywhere.

In addition to providing a roadmap to eradication, the new strategy calls for renewed political and financial commitments from governments and donors to achieve a polio-free world. Learn more about the action underway to eradicate polio.

Here is a letter from Past Rotary International President Holger Knaack and Past Rotary Foundation Chair of the Trustees Ravi Ravindran. It is a Call To Action.
