President's Message - Courtlin Holt-Nguyen 2017-2018
Aloha and welcome to this week's meeting! I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July holiday. The 2017-2018 Rotary year kicked off on July 1st and we're off to a great start. Thanks to Capsun's leadership last year and all of your support, our club is positioned for a fantastic year ahead filled with more fellowship, more community service projects and more fun!
The club visioning session that was held last month helped to identify the types of service projects and social activities that we will focus on this year. Now that our past President, Laine Kohama, has assumed the role of Assistant Governor overseeing five clubs in the East Honolulu area, we will also be working on more joint social events and service projects with the club's under Laine's direction. By pooling our clubs' resources, we will be able to offer more opportunities for everyone to engage with the community service projects that they feel most passionate about. As always, thank you for your continuing support of the Rotary E-Club of Hawaii and please let me know if you have any suggestions for how we could make the club even better.
Finally, I wanted to mention how grateful I am to have Ben's help with this website. Ben is instrumental in finding interesting content for the weekly meetings and designing the layout of the posts. Thanks again Ben, we couldn't do it without you!

What is TEDx ?
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)

Possible Discussion of Speaker's Topic?
By: Ben Holzhauser
This past week Biz brought up a great idea regarding a discussion of meeting topics, specifically citing TedTalks. I thought to put up a video on "embracing change" for this week's theme, as we shift into the summer months and prepare to go into the second half of 2017. Perhaps we can welcome a discussion within the comments below the meeting for this week?
