Thank you for this golden opportunity to serve Zonta and you as your District Governor for the Biennium 2016-2018. To be Governor of one of the premier districts in the Zonta world is a great privilege and with that privilege comes responsibilities. I look forward to addressing the challenges ahead and being given the golden opportunity to work with you. I am confident that together we will be able to further the mission of Zonta International.
The challenge for us is how we can ensure that ZI continue to be relevant as we celebrate our centennial in 2020. Strengthening every single link of our organization to maintain our sustainability and achieve long lasting impact in the lives of women and young girls continues to be a big challenge. But I believe in the power of concerted efforts. We cannot do everything but each one can do something.
