Jessica's Vision for the Club
Rotary is a space of support and friendship. Our community has stood strong in the face of a tumultuous world and I am proud to be a member of a club active both locally and internationally. As the world has opened up and become more "normal" than it has in the past four years, it is of utmost importance we do not fall into "normal" routines. We must take the painful recent memories and use them to thrust us into a period of momentum and action. It is time to take our "what ifs" and turn them into realities. It is time we connect with each other more than ever before on a deeper level. It is time for us to explore and grow in new directions informed by our past.
I am blessed to be surrounded by a incredibly supportive membership. We will be facing a unique challenge with this being, to my knowledge, our first completely remote presidency. I view this is an exciting and unique opportunity for us; I truly believe it will see us utilize new tools and skill sets that we can then leverage in other avenues.
Jessica's Club Vision for 2023-2024
Provide a space for engaged service of the community by way of integration of established tools and techniques with novel ones.
Jessica's Goals for 2023-2024
-Identify and actualize alternative volunteer, fundraising, and social events
-Define structures that combine best historical club practices and engage new membership
-Capitalize on club resources and new district opportunities
-Increase online operations to enable remote or hybrid audiences and memberships

We welcome Sally as the newest member of our club. She felt that she could contribute to the community with her husband Peter, who has been a member since 2009. Welcome Sally! We know you will be a great member for the year to come.
We are an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards and build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians, in more than 160 countries, unite in this effort.
Our membership is a cross-section of local business and professional men and women. Clubs meet weekly and membership is open, by invitation, to individuals who hold or retired from a professional, proprietary, executive, or managerial position and live or work within the locality of our club or surrounding area.
Formed in October of 1927, the North Conway Rotary Club
is as vital today as it was at its inception.
We are committed to making the Mount Washington Valley a great place to live. Through our fundraisers efforts we donate annually over $30,000 to various local groups and activities such as;
