Gary C.K. Huang, a member of the Rotary Club of Taipei, Taiwan, has been selected by the Nominating Committee to be President of Rotary International in 2014-15, the year that Lawrence Furbish will serve our District as Governor. Huang says his vision for Rotary is to increase membership to more than 1.3 million.


“To increase our membership, we must go beyond borders to wherever we see growth potential, such as the countries of China, Mongolia, and Vietnam. I will put an emphasis on increasing female and younger members,” Huang says. “I will also encourage former Rotarians to once again be part of our Rotary family.” 

Huang created 19 new clubs in 1986-87 when he served as governor of District 345, which included Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan.

Huang has been awarded the National Civic Service Award by the Federation of Non-Profit Associations and the Outstanding Community Service Award by the Ministry of the Interior, R.O.C. He is a recipient of the Rotary International Service Above Self Award and the Rotary Foundation’s Citation for Meritorious Service.
