Welcome to District 5810 - North Texas

Are you an established professional who wants to make positive changes in your community and the world? Our members are dedicated people who share a passion for community service and friendship. Becoming a Rotarian connects you with a diverse group who share your drive to give back. Founded back in 1911, District 5810 has grown to 63 clubs with 2700+ Rotarians scattered around 8 counties in the Northern part of Texas.

News Around The District
I usually begin this column with acknowledging the Rotary monthly theme, which for April is Child and Maternal Health month. But instead, with a global pandemic underway, I realize it is just HEALTH MONTH. I urge everyone to strictly follow the precautions of our federal, state and local health officials and perhaps we can soon CELEBRATE GOOD health month as we fight this invisible threat. In spite of the disappointment of sporting seasons canceled, Galas delayed, District Conference and International Conventions canceled- we remember what is important- EACH OTHER.
 
But Rotary has a way of surviving, just as Rotarians do. I urge every club to meet in a virtual way, and it is exciting for all of us to discover the technologies available to enhance and maintain our bond. We will be having Roundtable in April over a Zoom connection. Presidents have connected in 2 video conferences. Our Virtual Happy Hour was a hit, as we shared anecdotes related to the coronavirus, and we are planning another one. We are finding new ways to Connect, and as that is our theme word for this Rotary year, we not only connect the world but we Connect right here at home in 5810.
Consider the creative use of technology to host “virtual meeting” experiences for your members until you can resume in-person meetings and events. Below are a few ideas and favorite tools for virtual meetings. Each suggestion includes links to helpful how-to guides and/or other information to assist you in navigating these tools.
 
Here are some handy tips for hosting a Zoom meeting:
· Set an agenda.
· Don’t sit with a window behind you. A little effort of lighting goes a long way.
· Sit close to the screen. Your face should fill the screen.
· When you’re not talking, hit mute.
