President’s Message

BirgerDear fellow Rotarians and Friends,

I am deeply honoured to have been chosen your representative and President for the Rotary year 2017/18 and I will do everything in my power to fulfil your expectations. I cannot please everybody, there are many wills in a club, but I promise, I will listen to you.

May I present myself: I am 72 years old, originally from Sweden, married to Karina, together we have 5 “children” 46 to 31 of age. We live in Hua Hin since 10 years. I am a medical doctor, triple specialized in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Occupational Health and General Medicine. After management training at Stockholm School of Education, I have worked with health and profitability in midsized and large organizations and written 2 books about the subject. My interests have been music, downhill skiing, sailing and water in all forms. I retired from the Swedish Navy as a Lieutenant Commander 2007, the same year we oriented us towards Thailand. My wife and I have a company in Hua Hin, MediCall, a call center working for the Swedish government. This type of call center is the first link in the chain of health care in Sweden. We have 40 Swedish registered nurses answering calls from Sweden 24/7/365.

Being a Rotarian is to serve. “Service above Self” is the overall motto for Rotary. In Rotary we are over 1,200,000 members in 34,000 clubs in 200 nations. Every single member can make a difference for other people, but together we can change the world. And we are. Polio is as good as totally eradicated after 38 years of sustained work of Rotarians and volunteers. 2.4 billion kids have been vaccinated through Rotary.

Our club has been working with supporting people in need and especially kids in our area. Together with other Rotary clubs we support the people in need in our and other communities. That mission will continue and expand.

We are 45 members from 16 nations, which gives us a great opportunity to understand differences in culture and behaviour. As many of the members travel abroad, I would like us to pass 50 members to fill up the “club body”. Important is “that we need more Rotarians not just more members”. People who are willing to give and to serve.

Everybody in the club should be attached to a Committee, like service projects and education, fundraising like Golf Committee or other fundraisings. This is a way to actively contribute to the club goals, “Service Above Self”.

The President of Rotary International year 2017/18 is Ian H S Riseley from the RC of Sandringham, Australia, close to our sister club, RC of Cheltenham. His motto is “Rotary: Making a Difference”

And that we will!!!

Yours in Rotary
Birger
