Rotary International President Mark D. Maloney has invited The Rotary Club of Edina / Morningside's Tom Gump to the first ever “New Club Development Summit,” which will be convened at Rotary World Headquarters, in Evanston, Illinois, on January 30-31, 2020.   

President Maloney has called the Summit to coordinate and promote a growing network of proven leaders in new club development, which has historically been Rotary's primary growth engine. 
The Summit's objective is to build a community of practice for establishing new clubs, where a select group of experts from each zone in North America will convene to share best practices, discuss opportunities and resource needs, and set goals for a heightened and accelerated focus on establishing new and innovative club models. Participation will be limited to just 20 carefully selected Rotary leaders from across North America, who have demonstrated proven success in establishing new clubs.  

Tom is committed to actively identifying and establishing new and innovative Rotary club models in our region.   Congratulations Tom!
