Amanda Callander travels to South Korea for Rotary Convention

June 20th, 2016

Attorney Amanda Callander, also President-Elect of the Rotary Club of St. Andrews – Charleston, recently attended the 107th annual Rotary International Convention in Seoul, South Korea, along with more than 45,000 Rotary members from 160 different countries gaining new insights on how to improve lives and bring positive, lasting change to communities around the world.

Often described as a “mini-United Nations” because of its global scope and cultural diversity, the Rotary convention had a full agenda of exciting topics and workshops, including a lineup of world class keynote speakers, including the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Prime Ministers of both Korea and Sri Lanka, President and CEO of National Geographic Society and the Director of the Center for Global Health at the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention on the effort to end polio worldwide.

Rotary clubs world-wide address community needs at home and connect with clubs around the world to tackle humanitarian challenges abroad, including; fighting disease, providing clean water, supporting education, growing local economies, and protecting humanity and promoting peace.

While in South Korea, Amanda soaked up some local flavor by visiting the De-Militarized Zone between North and South Korea, touring the Gyeongbokgung Palace dating from the 1300’s, sailing the Han River and testing her spicy taste buds with some local Korean fare.

Amanda will be serving as the President of the Rotary Club of St. Andrews – Charleston for the 2016-2017 Rotary year starting on July 1st.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon indicates that we are "This Close" to ending polio because of Rotary's great work, during the Rotary Convention in Korea.
