  1. Thank you, Camille, for all your work to open up these opportunities for Rotarians both here and worldwide!

  2. Camille: You just keep coming up with interesting exchange opportunities year after year! Rick and I really enjoyed our experiences in Scotland and Turkey some years back. Thank you for your energy, Emily

  3. Thanks Emily. Please share info with Rotarians in your area as we are recruiting outgoing team members. Mike Hewett is serving as rep for your area! Hi to Rick

  4. Sylivia, please have your district in Uganda’s RFE chair contact me here and we can see about arranging an exchange. Exchanges and partnerships with other districts start with this planning step.

    In fact any Rotarian in District 5110 who has a contact in another country where they would like an exchange can have the chair of that district contact us and then the planning process begins. Thanks for asking
