President Mathieu Daquin will speak at our next meeting August 29, 2016. Mathieu is also the president of INTERNATIONAL CENTER 4 YOUTH SERVICES, INC. We expect Mathieu will talk about his experience when participating in a Rotary Group Study Exchange (GSE) sponsored by Rotary Wellington.
PDG Charlie Bromberg arranged for Mathieu to tell his GSE story, saying "we take different roads to Rotary membership. Some join because a friend invites us to attend a meeting, some join for business reasons, some become members because they experienced the work of Rotary first hand. Our President Mathieu is among those who experienced Rotary and that experience kindled a fire within him to become a Rotarian."
GSE is a program of unique vocational exchange sponsored by the Rotary Foundation and coordinated by Rotary Districts. A GSE team is usually comprised of a Rotarian team leader and four non-Rotarian members. Paired Districts exchange teams for between 4 to 6 weeks to experience vocations in each others cultural settings, which hopefully leads toward international peace through better understanding. Mathieu was a member of a GSE team that went to France.
