I am proud to announce that Brad Bodenhausen from the Springfield S. E. Rotary Club has agreed to serve as Chair of the Group Study Exchange Committee (GSE) for District 6080 beginning July 1, 2012.
Brad has had experience in international travel and a degree of Spanish proficiency which should help him with our district’s anticipated exchange with Central America Rotary District 4240. Brad has also previously served on the GSE committee for the district. Vocationally, Bodenhausen serves as Executive Vice President of Public Affairs for the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce.
While Brad’s term doesn’t officially begin until July, he will begin correspondence and discussions with representatives from our 2012-13 partner-district once Rotary International officially announces those pairings. That announcement is expected soon.
I am glad we have such great talent and commitment within our district and I look forward to working with Brad and his committee. I believe we will have the team in place that will take advantage of the burgeoning opportunities that will soon be available under New Visions guidelines.
Rotary District 6080
