We are happy to welcome Nicki Scott, District 6450 Governor-Elect, as our April meeting guest speaker. The meeting will occur on April 23, 2014 at the Union League Club of Chicago. The meeting will start at 7:00 p.m. Please see Nicki's bio below.



Rotary is a way of life for Nicki who considers herself to be a global citizen. It has been her passion ever since she was inducted into The Rotary Club of Naperville Sunrise in August 2000. The values of Service above Self, Internationalism and building understanding between different cultures and religions resonate strongly with Nicki’s own principles.  She quickly immersed herself in all that the club had to offer; leading community service projects, chairing fundraisers and hosting Youth Exchange and GSE Team members from other countries. As Director of International Service she spearheaded a grass roots humanitarian project in Zambia, Africa and a visit there with her family had a huge impact on them all resulting in Rotary becoming a family affair. Her husband Will became a Rotarian himself, son Sam (19) helped in chartering an Interact Club at Naperville North High School and daughter Chloe (17) wants to go back there after high school to volunteer herself.  Having served as President of her Club four years ago and Assistant Governor following that, she now looks forward to the honor of serving as District Governor, in 2014-15.

 

Having experienced first hand in Zambia and India the incredible good that The Rotary Foundation does in the world, Nicki is a strong supporter: a founding member of the Paul Harris Society and multiple Paul Harris Fellow. As a member of the District Foundation Committee she has served as coordinator of the Paul Harris Society and Chaired the Foundation Roadshow.  The trip to India was to be part of a Polio Immunization effort in February 2012 – the critical moment in time when India was able to celebrate being polio free for one whole year.  It was an experience that totally reinforced the need to keep pursuing the goal to End Polio Now, all the more vehemently, in this last stretch.

 

On the career front Nicki started out as a CPA with KPMG Peat Marwick in England having graduated from Exeter University with a combined honors in Economics and Statistics. After moving here to the US she became a Change Management Consultant and built an expertise in strategic planning, process improvement and systemization for small to mid size businesses.  She has used those skills on multiple occasions serving on the Boards of several Not-for-Profit organizations in the Naperville area.  In 2004 Nicki took the opportunity to become a business owner in her own right and purchased a Promotional Products business called Premium Choice serving both national and local markets. In chairing the Strategic Planning initiative for the District last year Nicki came full circle and is thoroughly looking forward to working with Cliff and Osei to implement that plan in the next three years.
