Outgoing DG Mahbub Ahmad thanked the entire District team for this year for their support and dedication in turning around the District.  He said , "What began just like many other Rotary years, turned into something we could never have imagined.  Our world turned upside down – what was normal is no longer the normal.  We were thrust into a completely unfamiliar world.  Each of us struggled to figure out where we were and what we needed to do – there was no guidebook. Our training did not include this scenario. "   DG Mahbub continued, " Today is not the time to harp on what has been accomplished, but on what we, as a District and in our Clubs will do in the future.  Rotary needs to change with the times.  We need to adapt, become diverse, be a true reflection of our society, and be the change in the world.  And for that we need to begin the change within ourselves." Here is a link to his complete remarks.
 
Incoming DG Mary Shackleton, thanked and celebrated the achievements of thse who led the Disrict in 2019-20.  She said Rotarians should remember "There is is no "I" in team.", She highlighted the opportunities before the District - We should upgrade and reboot our membership experience, better leverage technology in our next normal, and demonstrate Rotary's continued relevance by our response to COVID-19 and call for racial and social justice.  She pledged to use her opportunity to serve as Governor to open doors for the D7230 Rotary Family.  Here is a link to a slideshow of her presentation.
