The Leadership Development/Vocational Service Committee is looking for a few new members. If you are looking to renew your committee activity, the committee would love to have you join them.

What does the committee do on behalf of the club is each year? This year’s work includes developing an internal leadership program, planning the annual retreat hosted by incoming president Jim Maniace and coordinating First Fridays at the Athletic Club of Columbus. In addition, the committee has planned the regular Spotlight Raffles at weekly meetings and plans to feature several member businesses at the door once a month at the Monday meeting. Through these programs Co-Chairs Charlie Boltwood and Bill Shelby, Board Liaison Steve Heiser and the committee support goals of President Diane’s “Learn. Share. Inspire.” theme for this year’s Columbus Rotary mission. Committee members are Christie Vargo, Jerry Converse, Lea Blackburn, Linda Page, Linda Reese, Luke McCormick, and Sandy Knoesel.

According to co-chair Charlie Boltwood, "We're involved in projects that the committee hopes will help members get to know each other better, get members even more involved and help the club grow."

Sound like projects in which you can participate? Please join them on the 4th Monday, as they gear up for an exciting round of activity in the coming months. Please email co-chairs Charlie Boltwood at or Bill Shelby at to get started today.
