Rotary's second annual international speaker series began with University of Washington professor Saadia Pekkaman offering an intriguing presentation on international alliances around security and space.  Next, Larry Logue, District 5030 International Chair, provided club members an overview of international project possibilities, reviewed international projects recently undertaken by District 5030, and discussed grant related topics and resources available to grant writers.  In April, the Seattle International Club’s Judy Ginn discussed how she became interested in developing international projects and provided an overview of a current project.
Then members joined the Rotary Club of the Pacific Northwest Ending Sex Trafficking to hear Judy Runbeck describe her award-winning work to end international sex trafficking.  Finally, Megan Truxillo, deputy consul with the U.S. Embassy in Guatemala, spoke about working in a U.S. Embassy, and major U.S. policy priorities in Guatemala.  Thank you to Joanne Primavera for once again organizing this speaker series.
