The Rotary Club of San Francisco will be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations. Our guest speaker, Dr. Tatjana Kobb, appointed by Rotary International President Holger Knaack as a 2020-2021 Rotary International Representative at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, will discuss Rotary’s involvement in the formation of the U.N., Rotary‘s role in the past and the future, and her role as the Rotary Representative to the U.N.

Dr. Kobb has been a member of the Rotary Club of Newton since October 2017 and continues her membership while residing temporarily in China. She is a medical doctor and serves as a member of Rotary International’s Cadre of Technical Advisors for public health grants. 

Dr. Kobb's focus has been supporting the global health actions and contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and she is committed to facilitating Rotary program and public relations objectives; enhancing Rotary’s visibility; and furthering communications between Rotary International and the United Nations Development Program. 

The president of Rotary International annually appoints Rotarians and Rotaractors to serve as UN representatives, with an aim of fostering relationships with UN agencies and key international organizations and raising awareness of Rotary programs, while keeping Rotary informed of their organization's initiatives. The network advances a century-old tradition of fostering global harmony. Through the representatives' participation in various high-level meetings and events, they help advance the aims of Rotary around the world - chief among them is the eradication of polio and new actions, including the seventh Area of Focus: the environment.

This is a regular membership meeting of The Rotary Club of San Francisco, open to all Rotarians, visiting Rotarians, prospective members, and guests. The meeting is free, but you must register here to get the link
