Regional leaders

  • Regional Rotary Foundation coordinators
  • Rotary coordinators
  • Rotary public image coordinators
  • Endowment/major gifts advisers

Regional leaders work through their districts to connect Rotary members with resources that support our goals and deepen our impact in communities locally and around the world. They also serve as trainers and facilitators at Rotary institutes, governors-elect training seminars, regional meetings, district seminars, and other training events.
