									            DISTRICT 20 CONFERENCE
                                     MARCH           2011

The time has arrived for our Annual District 20 Conference, May 20, 21 and 22, 2011. Grand
Rapids has chosen to hold the conference in Holland, MI. This gives all attendees the
opportunity to see the Tulips and other festive sites. What an opportunity!
Lt. Governor Kathy and I will be streamlining the Saturday session and are striving to adjourn
early afternoon so you may enjoy the area. The International Representative, Quota International
Treasurer Laura Lee Lahman, will be sharing the news from QI as well as an update on, her
passion, Junior Clubs. Past Central Area Director and Iosco County member, Brenda Chadwick,
will provide a power point and report on the Listening Tour 2011. Past Central Area Director
and Flint member, Connie Rau, will present a requested panel discussion on Membership,
Recruitment and Retention and Julie Pioch, Michigan Extension Service and President of the
Kalamazoo Parliamentary Law Unit, will engage us, in a fun way, with a question and answer
Our meal events are: Saturday’s buffet luncheon will honor all Past District 20 Governors. They
will have their traditional Governor’s collection where the monies are designated to a Club to
Club Project of their choice; Saturday’s evening banquet will honor the 2010-2011 District 20
Club Quotarian’s of the Year choices and Sunday’s brunch the District 20 Volunteers of the
There will be an area for Club and QI sales and we plan on allowing lots of shopping time.
District 20 will, once again, sponsor a coffee break at the 2012 Quota International Convention.
To raise the cost, I am asking each club to bring a basket of treasurers/goodies for auction. The
basket can be a theme of your choice. The sponsorship of one of the coffee breaks at the
Vancouver Convention by District 20 was truly appreciated and we were acknowledged with a
sign as well as from the podium. District 20 has and will continue to be one of the leading
Districts in Quota Land.
In the next two District Newsletters, the District Conference and Standing Rules will be
published. The District President’s reports, Committee reports and other pertinent District and
International information will also be published allowing each District member to be updated on
the District and International business.
District 20 is extremely grateful to Brenda Chadwick for arranging the Listening Tour to include
all six of our clubs. What a privilege to have Quota International President Gwenn in our midst
for a visit. Each member had the opportunity to personally meet Gwenn and socialize with her.
Thank you Brenda for all the time and energy it took to schedule that opportunity.
Marilyn Doyle has also stepped up to the forefront and would like to arrange a bus trip to
Washington, D.C. She is willing to chair this trip and would like to have input from our District
Members. Family and friends would be able to attend also. No firm date has been set as she
would like to hear from members with their ideas. Please respond to Marilyn at:

            Report of Quota International District 20 Governor
                              Betty Weston
Governors Report:

As I have always said and continue to say “District 20 is the BEST”.

My last year as your Governor has been full and extremely rewarding. The Club visits renewed
friendships and gratification in fulfilling my duties. The DVD’s of the International Vancouver
Convention, the International publicity DVD’s, Club to Club DVD’s and our “Walk to End the
Silence” were well received. Thank you to everyone for your patience in my stumbling with
new equipment. I was disappointed I missed one of our clubs due to conflicts.

District 20’s year was full of bounty. Each club succeeded in fundraising, generous donations,
recruitment and spreading awareness of Quota throughout Michigan. Quota Cares Month was
successful and received an International award for one of our clubs and we now have our first
Junior Club.

Our Second “Walk to End the Silence” was again extremely successful. Each club embraced the
idea and adapted it to their club. The unity of our District shows. I thank you for the support.

I attended the International Vancouver Convention and had the opportunity to mingle with other
Governors, receive training and enjoy the fellowship of the many world wide members I have

Our District 20 Newsletter continued to be published each month and bring you up to date
information of our District plus International news. Thank you to our editors for their tireless
effort to publish in a timely fashion and provide our clubs with up to date information.

With the help of many District 20 Quotarians the planning for our 65h District Conference is
underway. We are privileged to have as our guest, Quota International Treasurer Laura Lee

My deep appreciation to Lt. Governor Kathleen for her continued support, for traveling with me
and my bunk bed, which was always available. To all the District 20 members I have worked
with, visited with, laughed with, cried with, and my Kalamazoo Club members, may I say a BIG
THANK YOU also. All of you have made the last two years a rewarding experience!

District 20 is in good hands with the six presidents, six vice presidents and our new Governor.
They will carry the torch of Quota and continue in having our District be a leader!

I will continue to serve my Club, our District, our Area and International in any way I am asked.

         Report of Quota International District 20 Lt. Governor
                             Kathleen Holt

My second year of training for Governor is almost finished. I know from my years in Quota,
District 20 clubs are a great support system. I look forward to the challenges of the next two

I enjoyed the club visits I was able to attend with Betty. It is always interesting to see the
different slants each club has on the same procedures. Betty had great power point presentations
but I’m not that technology inclined so will have to try a different approach!

The Flint Club participated in the Walk to End the Silence. I was the chair person and believe we
had the worst weather of any club that day! We actually got 8 members and two dogs to brave
the rain and cold. We accepted donations and again made $500 for service.

Wasn’t District Conference the greatest? OK I’m from the Flint Club. The turn out was great and
I felt I not only gained good information, but had fun. I’m sure with that being such a gung ho
club we can expect great things from the Grand Rapids Conference this spring.

One of the high lights this year was District 20’s participation in the President’s Listening Tour.
It was wonderful to have so many members meet the International President. She is such a great
example of what Quota is all about. She and Brenda (her chauffer) spent the night at my home,
so I also got to see what a nice person she is.

                      I’m looking forward to all of us making a difference in
                                       The next two years

                                         Yours in Quota

A minister was completing a temperance sermon. With great emphasis he said, 'If I had all the beer in the
                               world, I'd take it and pour it into the river.'
 With even greater emphasis he said, 'And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and pour it into the
 And then finally, shaking his fist in the air, he said, 'And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it
                                         and pour it into the river.'

Quotarians Responds to Australia Flood Disaster
We have had an amazing response to our appeal for relief donations after the devastating
Queensland floods in December and January. We are proud to report that Aus.$53,451 has been
donated by Quotarians from around the world and Aus.$17,000 has already been distributed.
Your contributions are being used specifically to assist special education schools and centers for
the disabled that were completely inundated—they have lost teaching resources, library books,
musical instruments, sporting equipment, and more. The special needs children who attend these
schools require specific equipment and resources for their education, which is often expensive
and specialized. South Pacific Area Liaison Beris Pritchard is working with the Education
Coordinator for Special Schools throughout Queensland, and we thank her for the speedy
delivery of funds to the schools, so they can get operating as quickly as possible. A full 100% of
your donations are going straight to the schools. Thank you for your support made in true Quota

Dear Fellow Quotarians,


 Hi! My name is Karen Murphy, and I am proud to offer my candidacy to you as your 2011-
2012 Quota International Treasurer. Who am I? I’m a wife, a mother, a Pharmacist, a
business owner, and a 15-year Quotarian. As a Quotarian, I want what you want – to be part of a
welcoming, friendly group in my own home town. To be making a difference with service in my
own home town. To be networking with Quotarians from right across the Quota world. And, to
grow Quota! In Quota, I firmly believe that we need to get our maths just right. What is the
magic formula? Quota Service + Quota Growth = Quota’s Future So, what is my Quota
service record? As Governor, I started “QuoCKa Reading”, that’s Quota, Cops and Kids,
Reading Together. This program is easy to start (I’ve even written the manual with “Steps to
Success” in it!), and it is heart-warming for all concerned. Our Quota members love it. The
Police love it. The teachers and librarians love it. And, most importantly, the children love it!
Email me for further details, and a manual to start this in your club.
As our club World Service Chair, I started the World Service Ambassador of the Year
program. This is a speech competition for high school students – they research OUR Quota Club-
to-Club projects (on our website), prepare a speech about their favourite project, and present this
speech on the day of judging. Prize monies awarded are given to the Quota project they spoke
about! That’s a Quota gift that gives twice! Please email me for further details on this too! And,
in our club, this Quota Service has led directly to Quota Growth! The students from this
program are the ones who wanted to do more in Quota, to help others, and they started the first
JQ club in the South Pacific Area. And, this is part of our Quota Future! Just this week, we
have started our second JQ Club – and they are going to do “QuoCKa Reading” with a local

What is my Quota Growth record? I have always been passionate about Development and
Growth – within our own clubs, and also in developing new clubs. Whilst I was Lt Governor of
District 30, I held two “Development and Growth Forums”, and developed resource manuals for
clubs to use. As Governor, I was proud to welcome two new branches (North Lakes and
Logan), and two new Quota clubs (QI Robina and QI North Lakes) to our District. As South
Pacific Area Director, I am proud to have welcomed four new branches (Ingham, Gen Y GC,
Townsville Silver Q, and Jimboomba’s Circle), and two new Quota clubs (QI Mackay’s Rural
North and QI Caloundra), and the work is not stopping there – further new branch and club
organisation is progressing right across the South Pacific Area! I started monthly hearing
testing sessions in the Pharmacy, and these were so successful, Australian Hearing then set up a
complete office in town.

Why should you vote for me? I have the credentials for the job. I am a proven Quota leader.
As a Pharmacist, I am professional, educated, and caring. As a business owner, I am goal-
driven, undertake responsible management, look for growth and marketing opportunities, and
have extensive financial experience. My Board of Directors experiences include management of
$millions of funds, ability to work as a team, and successfully planning for the future. As a
Quotarian, I am positive, progressive and passionate – I am confident to travel across the Quota
world visiting our Club-to-Club projects and members, and I have a Quota vision, which I’d like
to turn into action! My vision is to have Quota clubs in every city, suburb and town – offering
the gift of Quota to all! With strong, forward-thinking leadership, and prudent use of resources,
now is the time to expand our Quota service programs into new communities. We need to
harness the unique strengths of Quota – providing mentoring, encouragement, and friendship
throughout our membership, to lead us forward – to increase the average number of members per
club, and to charter new clubs. Together, we can grow Quota – this is the key to our future
viability! Together, let’s “put our hearts into Quota, and put Quota in our hearts!” I have
the passion for all-things Quota: Quota service, Quota growth, and I have Quota’s future in my
heart. I offer you my candidacy and my skills. I ask for your vote. Your friend in Quota
service, Karen
