A Message from Kamal Della
District 5170 International Committee Chair
Dear Rotarians,
First, I am very pleased and honored to be this year’s  District International Chair!
This Rotary year is going to be very exciting as we embrace our new Rotary theme,“Rotary Connects The World”.  
Fitting with this theme I wish to connect you to all of the members of our new District 5170 International Team.  This Team’s only purpose is to help you with your club’s International projects.  Consider the Team your  Rotary International “Help Desk”.  
Collectively , the Team members have decades of experience in Rotary International projects, Rotary Foundation Global Grants,  Global Grant projects,  and PR, Social Media & Communications.  They will be available to you to answer any questions you may have regarding any element of your International Service project(s).   They are listed below with their contact information.  Feel free to contact them anytime.
This year our committee will be sharing with you a variety of  practical methods by which your club can launch an International Service project, along with ways by which you can do this in concert with one or more partner clubs. Together, we can exemplify this year’s Rotary theme of “Rotary Connects the World.”
We look forward to getting to know all of the Rotary Club International Chairs and your plans for International Projects.   We hope to be of service and support to you!
Yours in Rotary Service
