John F. Germ, a
member of the Rotary Club of
Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA, and chair
of the International PolioPlus
Committee, was the President of Rotary International in 2016-17.
For Rotary to
thrive, Germ says, members must face
current and future challenges and
opportunities with "passion, enthusiasm,
perseverance, and above all, integrity." "I envision
Rotary boldly and creatively engaging
the success of polio eradication,
membership and identity issues,
strengthening clubs, work with youth -
our future lifeblood, and the creation
of critical, strategic partnerships,"
