Mark this date on your calendar for an amazing presentation by Jennifer Jones! Jennifer is well qualified to lead Rotary International and will be the first female President of RI in 2022-2023!

A current Rotary Foundation trustee, Jones has been a Rotary member since 1997 and has served Rotary as RI vice president, director, training leader, committee chair, moderator, and district governor. She played a lead role in Rotary’s rebranding effort by serving as chair of the Strengthening Rotary’s Advisory Group. She is the co-chair of the End Polio Now Countdown to History Campaign Committee, which aims to raise $150 million for polio eradication efforts. Jones recently led the successful #RotaryResponds telethon, which raised critical funds for COVID-19 relief and was viewed by more than 65,000 people and raised over half a million dollars.

Jennifer Jones has been very helpful to Rotary Club of Ann Arbor. In 2016, she brought the Rolling with Rotary Van to Ann Arbor and participated in our Polio March on the U of M Campus. In 2017, she was very instrumental in encouraging RCAA to become the lead sponsor of the World Peace Conference. She was a major donor to the project. In Fall, 2019 she was keynote speaker at the Foundation Dinner for Districts 6380 and 6400. Many members of RCAA attended this event and had an opportunity to speak with her. We hope you will join us for the very special RCAA event and invite others to attend. The event is Free, but we would like you to register by clicking here.
