General Alfonso Miro, Commander of the Lombardy Army Military Command, was our speaker at the convivial meeting on 20 September. A great honor for the whole club to have such a prestigious guest.
During the pleasant evening the General told a lot about his experience in Russia, a country where he lived for more than 3 years. He exhibited some of his travel notes, informing us about curiosities and details of the country and its people. A beautiful, informative and exciting evening.
We started this Rotary year together with Dr. Luisa Quarta, head of strategic marketing, lead generation and external relations at Bureau van Dijk, a Moody's Analytics Company.
We talked with her about the importance of spreading the concept of parenting in the company in relation to the couple in spite of the term maternity which has always been entrusted only to women. We wondered about the need for parental leave for the father as well. All to allow women to be able to develop and increase their careers just like men, with the same possibilities and tools.
We closed this Rotary year with a flourish by hosting Dr. Marco Riva - President C.O.N.I. Lombardy region. Dr. Riva talked about the commitment of the territory involved in the next Olympic Games for the construction of the necessary infrastructures.
It was a really exciting evening this handover! Many friends and many celebrations.
The Outgoing President Andrea Melacini, before passing the collar to the new President Jane Messina, wanted to give the Paul Harris pins to the members who have been close to him during this difficult year of pandemic. Many members who supported this President who had the hard task of completing a particular year and difficult plan.
The Rotary Club Milano International Net is ready to restart, led by Dr. Jane Messina, to grow its membership and disseminate the Club's projects. Past, present and future: Chiara Giudici is the new incoming President!
Good luck to all members, ad maiora!
