President's Message - Capsun M. Poe, President 2016-2017
Aloha Rotarians and Friends:
As I write this, I am finishing a one week visit to the Bay Area. That got me thinking about the PETS training that I attended last year and the PETS training that I supported this year, both in San Jose. Traveling with and meeting other Rotarians is one of the greatest joys and opportunities to connect with others. I hope you'll take advantage if you are able to. It doesn't have to be at PETS. It can be at a District Conference (our Hawaii District Conference is on Maui next week). Or it could even be at our Rotary International Convention; I've been told up to 50 Hawaii Rotarians normally travel to the International Convention. This year's convention will be held in June in Atlanta, Georgia; 2018 will be in Toronto, Canada; 2019 will be in Hamburg, Germany; and 2020 will be in our own back yards here in Honolulu. Although I have yet to attend an International Convention, it's always good to start planning. So who else is interested?

Speaker: Three Ways to Plan for the (Very) Long Term
By Ari Wallach | Courtesy of YouTube and TedTalks
Published on May 5, 2017We increasingly make decisions based on short-term goals and gains -- an approach that makes the future more uncertain and less safe. How can we learn to think about and plan for a better future in the long term ... like, grandchildren-scale long term? Ari Wallach shares three tactics for thinking beyond the immediate.
The TED Talks channel features the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and more.
