PDG Doug Vincent--Rotary and the UN

Doug Vincent joined Eastview today to speak about his experience as Rotary Representative to the United Nations.  PDG Doug Mortin introduced our guest who is a charter member and Past President of the Woodstock-Oxford Rotary Club (Canada) and served as District Governor in 2005-2006 of District 7080.  He was a 'classmate' of Doug Mortin.  Guest Doug has 31 years of perfect Rotary club attendance.  He has been presented with a number of awards including an R.I. Presidential Citation, a Service Above Self Award, a Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Medal and more.  He spoke about the importance of the Power-of-One and noted that most Rotary projects began as an idea of one Rotarian.  He sees the Rotary organization as an inverted pyramid with the Rotary membership at the top and the projects below.  The association with the UN started in 1945 with 49 Rotarians in a charter meeting.  The UN wanted Rotary involved as Rotarians were well known for their efforts in establishing world peace and understanding.  The UN encourages Rotary to continue their efforts in public awareness, to strengthen and scale up their successful programs, to build more capacity with literacy and education, to promote tolerance and respect and to demand accountability (of governments and service providers).
PDG Doug Vincent, Rotary representative to the UN
The UN's sustainable development goals resemble Rotary's areas of focus and the UN has received input from Rotary.  We can engage at the local level through MUNA (Model United Nations Assembly), the Rotary Youth Exchange program and by networking with local affiliates.  We can use our Rotary tool box-scholarships, the Rotary Foundation, the Exchange program and UN/Rotary friends. He further demonstrated the 'magic' of matching grants. A wonderful presentation--thank you for bringing it to us at Eastview.
