FEBRUARY 25, 2020 PROGRAM: Joan Gabel

RSVP today for the Joint Meeting with Minneapolis #9. We’ll meet at our usual time (Tuesday, Noon), but at the historic Minneapolis Club for our annual networking meeting with Minneapolis Rotary Club 9.  Guests are welcome!

Our speaker will be Joan T.A. Gabel, the 17th President of the University of Minnesota and the first woman in the University's 167-year history to hold its highest office.

Gabel came to the U of M from the University of South Carolina where she had been the executive vice president for academic affairs and provost. Before becoming South Carolina’s chief academic officer, Gabel had served as dean of the University of Missouri’s Trulaske College of Business for five years. Earlier positions at Florida State University and Georgia State University included Gabel holding distinguished chairs, serving as department director and earning accolades as a faculty member. She also was editor in chief of the American Business Law Journal. Before her work in higher education, Gabel was an attorney. She earned her bachelor’s degree in philosophy from Haverford College (Pa.) and her Juris Doctor from the University of Georgia.

You can park at the Minneapolis Club. When you enter their ramp let the attendant know that you are with Rotary. You pay them $5 cash and do not need to take a ticket. Minneapolis Rotary has discount parking passes for the 333 South 7th Street ramp available when you check in for the meeting. This ramp is one block from the Minneapolis Club. Hourly discounted rates are approximately $5. There are also metered on-street parking spaces which accept cash and credit cards and there are several parking ramps near the Club.

The Joint Meeting replaces one of Club 10's Signature Lunch Programs for February. The Guest Lunch Fee is $25.

      JANUARY 14, 2020 PROGRAM: International Youth Exchange

      Come ready to share your international travels (or dreams) during the meeting. Please wear or bring a memento of an international trip and put a pin on our world map so we can see where our club members have traveled. This is also a great time to let us know if you are interested in joining the club trip to Nagasaki, Japan this fall, or if you would like to travel to Bolivia or Rwanda for our international service projects.

      Our speaker is Emma Mulhern, President of North Star Rotex (and daughter of club member Linda Mulhern), which supports past, present and future Rotary Youth Exchange students in our area. Our youth exchange alumni are the key to a network of host families here and around the world.

      Rotex is a service organization made up of former Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) students. They support future, current and recently returned RYE students by helping to run various orientations and overnight events. After all, who better to give advice about being an exchange student than someone that has already experienced it?
