May 24 l GSE Inbound Team from Guatemala
Come hear the GSE team from Guatemala speak about Group Study Exchange and the experi- ences they are having in District 5110. Group Study Exchange (GSE) is a program that District 5110 funds each year where an exchange happens for approximately one month. This is your unique opportunity to meet team mem- bers and hear their stories. Kim Forrest from Southtowne recently went to Guatemala as part of our team traveling to their District. During the time in the country, as well as exchanging culture, Rotary traditions, team members network with others in their profession. Any Rotarian under 40 can apply to be a part of an outgoing team. This is a unique opportunity to meet this team as they travel through our district. Hear about this Rotary program and the impact it has on Rotarians.
