2023-24: Create Hope in the World

2023/24 Presidential Rotary Theme


Gordon R. McInally RI President 2023-24

New Rotary International President-elect Gordon R. McInally, a member of the Rotary Club of South Queensferry, Lothian, Scotland, calls for Rotary to ‘Create Hope in the World’ by working for peace and mental wellbeing. He urges members to engage in tough conversations and earn the trust that’s necessary to realise these values.

Read Gordon McInally’s opening message to Rotary as he takes on the role of Rotary International President for 2023-24:

Even as we face new and serious challenges, Rotary takes care of its members and those we serve, works to build lasting peace, and embeds belonging and inclusion in everything we do. That is why I am asking everyone in Rotary to Create Hope in the World.

The theme was inspired and detailed with a story of hope following the tsunami in southeast Asia when McInally was given a small conch shell by a survivor who had lost her family, home and livelihood.  The efforts of Rotarians had restored her optimism and given her hope.
