World Wide Rotary Day, launched by our club in 1997, honors the San Francisco Consular Corps as the special guests of the Rotary Club of San Francisco. Typically, representatives from about 20 countries attend. The event also recognizes the many international service activities of the Rotary Club of San Francisco and the broad global impact of Rotary International. Past World Wide Rotary Day programs have featured several past presidents of Rotary International and as well as a variety of business leaders from the Bay Area. The presence of so many members of the San Francisco Consular Corps and Rotarians makes World Wide Rotary Day a very special occasion.

The speaker at this year's World Wide Rotary Day is Jonathan Granoff, president of the Global Security Institute, a senior advisor of the American Bar Association's Committee on Arms Control and National Security, and former vice president of the NGO Committee on Disarmament at the United Nations. He serves on numerous governing and advisory boards including the Lawyers Committee on Nuclear Policy, the Lawyers Alliance for World Security, the Jane Goodall Institute, the Bipartisan Security Group, and the Middle Powers Initiative.

Jonathan Granoff lectures worldwide on the legal, ethical, and spiritual dimensions of human development and security, with a specific focus on the threats posed by nuclear weapons.

World Wide Rotary Day is one of our most popular luncheon programs. Please be sure to RSVP so we can be sure there are enough seats for everyone who wants to attend.

Members are needed to host visiting members of the Consular Corps at the reception and luncheon. For more information about volunteering as a host, contact Sacha Shashi:​​, 781-696-4834.
