John RothmannJohn Rothmann returns to speak to our Club. This time, he will join us via Zoom and speak on current events. As always, John will welcome questions from the audience.  

John is a KGO 810 radio talk show host and political commentator. A frequent lecturer on American politics and the presidency, Rothmann has also been involved in a broad variety of political campaigns on the national, state and local levels. In his book Thomas E. Dewey and the Making of the Modern Republican Party, presidential scholar Richard Norton Smith calls Rothmann "a scholar of modern Republicanism". Historian Roger Morris in his biography, Richard Millhous Nixon-The Rise of An American Politician, acknowledges Rothmann "for his unique insights, and in particular for rare and crucial materials ..." 

John has been on the faculty of the Fromm Institute at the University of San Francisco since 2004. Rothmann is the co-author of Icon of Evil-Hitler's Mufti and the Rise of Radical Islam and Harold E. Stassen: The Life and Perennial Candidacy of the Progressive Republican. He was a consultant on the published books, The Jews in America, A Day in the Life of Israel and Jerusalem in the Shadow of Heaven. His personal library of 15,000 volumes is widely recognized as one of the finest libraries of American political history and biography in the United States.

This is a regular membership meeting of the Rotary Club of San Francisco, open to all Rotarians, visiting Rotarians, prospective members, and guests.

Meeting Schedule:

12:00 Noon  Registration & Networking
12:15 PM (sharp!)  Meeting begins (club business followed by keynote speaker)
1:30 PM  Meeting adjourns

 

A three-course lunch will be served. The price is $45, with old tickets for lunch from the Sir Francis Drake accepted as a partial payment of $35. If you require a vegetarian, gluten free, or vegan lunch, please email President Mary.

Remote attendance via Zoom is available at no charge. Register here for Zoom attendance only.

For in-person attendees: Please note that once President Mary provides the headcount to the Hotel Nikko on the Friday before our Tuesday meeting, we will be billed for that count regardless of whether you show or not. Therefore, it is important to let her know if you are unable to attend after registering, but no later than Sunday night. If you are a no-show without notifying her ahead of time, the Club will be billed the cost of the meal and will have to pass the cost down to you. We hope to not have to do this.

Proof of Vaccination and Masks Required

To maximize the health and safety of Rotarians, guests, speakers, staff at the Hotel Nikko (where we meet), and those who may potentially be in a high-risk category for complications due to COVID-19, the Rotary Club of San Francisco REQUIRES all members and guests, regardless of vaccination status, to wear a face covering mask during the meeting except while eating.

On August 12, 2021, the City and County of San Francisco placed proof of COVID-19 vaccination on patrons entering establishments where food/beverages are served. Acceptable proofs of vaccination include the CDC vaccination card, a physical or digital copy of that card, documentation from a healthcare provider, or a personal digital COVID-19 vaccination record issued by the State of California. Businesses subject to this new requirement must cross check proof of full vaccination against each patron’s photo identification. 

The Club believes that these policies are consistent with Rotary's Four-Way Test as well as with the current guidelines of the CDC and the San Francisco Department of Public Health. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
