It is my honor and privilege to serve you as the Club President for RY 2011 – 12.  Since it was founded in 2008, the Chicagoland Korean Rotary Club has actively participated in various service projects locally and worldwide.  These past achievements were made possible due to the warm heart and enthusiasm of our preceding presidents, Dr. Sung Won Kim, Mr. Won Yoon, and Dr. Byoung In Suh, Ph.D.  ‘Reach Within to Embrace Humanity’ is the theme of 2011 – 12 RI.  Carlos Früm, the Governor of Rotary District 6440, asks us, ‘Why did you join Rotary?’  It is because we want to help others, as it is part of our humanity.  ‘Service and Fellowship’ is our Club motto.  We will continue to strengthen the fellowship between the club members, which is a prerequisite element for providing humanitarian service, be it within our community or global-wide.  Our committees are encouraged to commit to various service projects.  We will continue to strive to be true Rotarians.  We will work together and dedicate ourselves to service.  I wish you will enjoy your time in the club.


Sincerely yours,


Paul Byungtag Kim

President of Chicagoland Korean Rotary Club
