Club Management & Leadership Goals
How we manage ourselves
Dedicating itself to Service Above Self, the Rotary Club of Murrieta manages its varied programs through a leadership plan that maintains the traditional “avenues of service,” but puts new emphasis on public relations and membership growth.
President Steve Nicholson chairs an active Board of Directors and provides overall leadership to the organization.
John Brown, president-elect, directs the club’s major fundraiser. The immediate past president, LouEllen Ficke, sits on the board for the purpose of continuity and also serves as treasurer.
Linda Dozier is the secretary.
The president nominee oversees the club’s activities in these areas:
- Community service (Jim Yanoschik, director)
- International service (Doreen Tate, director)
- Youth service (Jody Lawlor and Liz Jones, directors)
- Vocational service (Kelly Orchard, director)
A director of administration, Dawn Layton, oversees many of the club services, like meetings management, programs, member fellowship and the myriad other things that make a club go.
The director of membership, John Brown, leads the club’s efforts to recruit, activate and retain the club’s most valuable asset — you, the Rotarian.
To share the news of all we do with both the members and the world around us, the club’s director of public relations, Linda Dozier, handles communication activities, including member communication, the web site and media relations.
The club’s reach extends well beyond Murrieta’s boundaries, and that results in large measure from involvement with Rotary International’s Foundation. The club’s own foundation director, Saomorn Pang, encourages membership giving to the international foundation as well as to Murrieta’s own Permanent Fund, an endowment the club is building to exist in perpetuity, with interest earnings being used to support annual club programs.
