Imagine Rotary

RI President-elect Jennifer Jones wants members to imagine the possibilities in the change they can make to transform the world.

Jones a member of the Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada, revealed the 2022-23 presidential theme, Imagine Rotary, as she urged people to dream big and harness their connections and the power of Rotary to turn those dreams into reality.

“Imagine, a world that deserves our best,” Jones told incoming district governors on 20 January,
“where we get up each day knowing that we can make a difference.”

Jones made history on 1 July 2022 by becoming Rotary’s first female president, gave a live address. She gave a live online address to preceed Rotary’s annual training event for district governors from around the world, the International Assembly.

Jones told the incoming governors about a chance she took when a member asked for assistance in getting a young peace activist out of Afghanistan during the U.S. troop withdrawal last year. At first unsure how she could help, she relied on “that certain Rotary magic” and contacted a former Rotary Peace Fellow she had met a few years earlier. Less than 24 hours later, the activist was on an evacuation list, and soon she was on her way to Europe.
