Former Pres. Microsoft Entertainment & Devices Division
Robert J. Bach, better known as Robbie Bach, was the president of Entertainment & Devices Division at Microsoft. He led the division that was responsible for the Xbox, Xbox 360, Zune, Windows Games, Windows Mobile and the Microsoft TV platform. After 22 years at Microsoft, including 10 years leading the Xbox business as its Chief Xbox Officer, Bach is turning his strategic and leadership skills to a new challenge: helping individuals and organizations drive transformational change in business and civic institutions.
Bach calls his new role “Civic Engineer.” He believes we all have a responsibility to engage on civic issues and he dedicates his time and energy to providing strategies, creative ideas, and consulting to organizations who are driving positive change in our communities. He speaks to corporate, academic and civic groups across the country and in 2015 completed his first book, Xbox Revisited: A Game Plan for Corporate and Civic Renewal.
ALL STAR ROTARIAN SCORECARDS ARE DUE SUNDAY
The All Star Rotarian scorecard is due Sunday, April 30. Believe it or not, even if you are a chronic procrastinator and starting with a clean scorecard, it is still technically possible to complete all required activities and qualify. Of course, doing all of this in one week will also prepare you for a future career as a District Governor. Download your scorecard HERE. You can submit your completed scorecard at the District Assembly this Saturday in St. Augustine.
HOUSE OF FRIENDSHIP AT THE ALL STAR CONFERENCE
The tradition of a District House of Friendship (HOF) will continue at the All Star Conference. Reservations are now being accepted to secure space within our HOF to present and/or display information about your past or ongoing projects. This will be a terrific opportunity to share with other Rotarians from across District 6970 (and beyond) the details of your favorite projects.
Only 44 days until the All Star Conference in Atlanta! Don’t forget to buy your raffle ticket for the Executive Suite! www.allstarconference.org/suite
Yours in Rotary Service,
The Rotary International Convention organizers have offered our club an opportunity to showcase our good works. RI is producing Paint the Town Rotary for the June conference in Atlanta.
We need high-resolution photos (full sized, un-retounched) of our members in action at various service projects. “Grip-n-grins” — as they are often called — and other posed shots probably will not be accepted by the convention organizers.
July 1st marks the beginning of the 2017-2018 Rotary year. For the 106 years the Rotary Club of Jacksonville has served our community success has always been dependent on members like you to actively work and contribute with our committees and teams.
Now is the time to let it be known which committee you prefer to be a part of in the coming new Rotary year.
