RIPE Jennifer Jones

Jennifer Jones

RI President 2022-23

Rotary Club of Windsor- Roseland
Ontario, Canada

 

               Presidents Theme 2022-2023

 

Jones is founder and president of Media Street Productions Inc., an award-winning media company in Windsor. She was chair of the board of governors of the University of Windsor and chair of the Windsor-Essex Regional Chamber of Commerce. She has been recognized for her service with the YMCA Peace Medallion, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and Wayne State University’s Peacemaker of the Year Award, a first for a Canadian. Jones holds a Doctor of Laws (LL.D.).

As the first woman to be elected president, Jones understands how important it is to follow through on Rotary’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Statement. “I believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion … begins at the top and for us to realize growth in female membership and members under the age of forty — these demographics need to see their own reflection in leadership,” Jones said. “I will champion double-digit growth in both categories while never losing sight of our entire family.”

Jones has been a Rotary member since 1997 and has served Rotary as RI vice president, director, training leader, committee chair, moderator, and district governor. She played a lead role in Rotary’s rebranding effort by serving as chair of the Strengthening Rotary Advisory Group. She is the co-chair of the End Polio Now Countdown to History Campaign Committee, which aims to raise $150 million for polio eradication efforts. She also led the successful #RotaryResponds telethon in 2020, which raised critical funds for COVID-19 relief and was viewed by more than 65,000 people.

Jones has also received Rotary International’s Service Above Self Award and The Rotary Foundation Citation for Meritorious Service. She and her husband, Nick Krayacich, are members of The Rotary Foundation’s Arch Klumph Society, Paul Harris Society, and the Bequest Society.

Welcome to Peach State PETS 2022

Peach State PETS is a multi-district training initiative for the three Georgia Rotary Districts designed to provide necessary and current information to the incoming class of club presidents.  More than 200 club leaders will come together to meet and network with other club presidents, district leaders, and international leaders while learning about the operations of a successful Rotary Club.  Your spouse/partner is encouraged to attend all of the meal sessions with you.  There will be over 300 participants,

There will be fun. There will be fellowship. There will be good food. There will be presentations made by Rotary and maybe non-Rotary leaders.  You will have the opportunity to participate in discussions with workshop facilitators.  You will have the opportunity to meet with your district clubs and district leadership.

While it is true that each club president-elect is required to attend president-elect training,

the entire program is planned and designed for you so you can learn and have the essential tools and contacts to have an effective and successful year with your club.
