RPCV Erik Scheller announcing Rotary-- GSE Program to FINLAND!
Hello Fellow RPCVs
Over the last few years I usually send one message nearly every year and it is the announcement of Rotary District 5150's (San Francisco, Marin, and San Mateo Counties) Group Study Exchange (GSE). The format of this program will likely be changing in upcoming years but for now it is as it has been. The GSE trip will be to Finland from March 18 to April 15, 2013. Notice the application date is very soon!
The flyer attached and the message below explains the program somewhat.
I am only signed up for the San Francisco, North Bay, and NorCAL PCA Yahoo groups so Jayma can you forward to your East Bay group and if the other area group board representatives thing it would be of interest forward it as well. Keep in mind, although you may not qualify for this particular district's GSE program, you are very likely qualified for a different district's GSE program and from what I understand all districts around here have GSE programs.
If you have questions about this program or Rotary, do not hesitate to contact me. I became a Rotarian at the Rotary Club of Fisherman's Wharf immediately after my GSE trip to the Philippines in 2000. Since then there have been a handful of RPCVs who have gone on GSE trips. I have yet to meet someone that did not think the GSE trip was amazing.
