Paul Butler gave a detailed outline of his role as the Foundation Chair (FC). He said he loves it so much that he will be the Foundation Chair next year also :-). He showed Jan Parsons' USB drive that had all the information that Jan collected during her role as FC. Some of his KEY tasks are --
  1. Monitor and make sure the club is still in the EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) category - minimum $25  donation from every member.
  2. Send out emails to all members about the various awards, such as Paul Harris, EREY, etc.
  3. Present the Paul Harris pin and award to all members that contribute $1,000 or more each year.
  4. Mail all the checks back to Chicago office.
  5. Get all the reports online about the various awards and inform all members.
  6. Attend the Foundation seminar in fall.
  7. Deposit all the checks collected for Bocce to the Bocce account.
  8. Club's current cash balance is $52,000 after donating $25k towards the Solutions for Change van.
1. Why did you choose that position? He chose that since he saw Charles and Jan do this and wanted to follow their footsteps :-).
 
2. How would you improve it? Bringing some videos to show to the club and motivate other members.
