To: Michel Jazzar
Primary, Representative to the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia
As we approach the end of the Rotary year, I would like to thank you for your service to Rotary as Primary Representative to the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia. Your actions as a Rotary Representative have expanded our organization’s voice within the international community and promoted the idea that Rotary is and shall remain a key influencer on the world stage.
As president, I have said repeatedly that I believe that Rotary can and does play a vital role in promoting peace and goodwill among people and communities across the globe. You and your fellow Representatives are at the very vanguard of our outreach efforts. As Rotary’s ambassadorsto the world’s most influential institutions, you help advance the idea that through our service, diversity, local knowledge, and willingness to listen and learn, Rotary can bridge the often expansive divides between cultures, creeds and religions in order to build a more peaceful world.
Again, I thank you for your service to Rotary during the past year. Please know that your efforts are valued by me personally and Rotary as a whole. Your work exemplifies the idea of “Peace Through Service.” I look forward to possibly collaborating with you in the future.
