Rotary International Names 2024-2025 President
Stephanie Urchick, member of the Rotary Club of McMurray, PA, USA, will become the second woman to take office as president of Rotary International on July 1, 2024.
During her one-year term, Urchick will lead the global service organization in adapting its systems and structures to enable Rotary’s 1.4 million members in 200 countries and regions to deliver impactful and lasting solutions to the continued challenges facing the world today in a more efficient and regionally effective manner.
To that end, Urchick will strive to foster an understanding of how regional differences affect the way Rotary members work together, and how to leverage and embrace different perspectives to create a strong foundation for innovation, sustainability, and growth.
“Rotary is not the same for everyone everywhere. Understanding how culture, religion, geography, language and so much more inform how Rotary members work together is critical to furthering Rotary’s impact,” said Urchick. “By acknowledging, respecting and responding to these differences, Rotary can increase cooperation and create and sustain meaningful change everywhere we live, work, and serve.”
