Governor Barbara Yoder



Welcome to the new biennium, 2016-2018. Thank you District 10 for your mighty reputation and determination,to live out Zonta's mission and vision! All during the convention, I heard how District 10 is distinctive in giving, membership, service and advocacy. I viewed even more contrast in our can do atitude and sense of pride as I spoke to other Zonta members from across the world. I truly believe District 10 knows "how to do Zonta"! But, I also believe that we can best that and continue the trend. I am excited to tell you that your new District 10 Board will have it's first meeting the weekend of August 6th. We will plan together to fishtail district goals with the new biennium goals set by International President Sonja Honig Schough and accepted overwhelmingly by delegate vote at convention in Nice. I encourage each member to reflect on the biennium goals and see how your local planning can mirror them in service and advocacy, too. In summary here they are:

- 5% membership growth

- ZIF donation support: goal set at $5.5 million

- One new club in our district (minimum)

- Club service projects majority "Z"

Please note: The call to the Governor's Summit in Seguin will be issued electronically to presidents on August 15th via Constant Contact. Your club president will forward this call to you. A registration form and information about the event will follow to all members via Constant Contact. Please keep in mind a quick turn around on hotel registration exist. The block will be open from August 15 to September 15. Our summit will focus on leadership and be flavored with fellowship and learning. Two years is too long not to make contact with friends and leaders in our District. I am challenging each club to bring at least 15% of your club members to this meeting. The registration is not prohibitive at all! Target participants for this meeting are new members, potential members and seasoned members........in other words all! I look forward to this first Governor's Summit! Communication is the key indicator for many things! Zonta communication is very important and I ask you to engage with your club, in your district and with the ZI web site! Watch for a change up in the district web site, a president's blog and more use of the Zoom electronic platform for meetings! I couldn't be more proud of District 10, it's history and what we will do together in 2016-18!


Always reppin' Zonta!
