Joscelyne, Past President of Rotary eClub One
Rotary eClub One Professional Excellence Award is given to a Founder, CEO or
senior executive of a not-for-profit enterprise who is making a significant and
effective contribution to the well-being of those served by the enterprise. The
award can be given to any outstanding person who is not a member of Rotary
eClub One, so Rotarians of other Rotary clubs may be considered for the award.
Professional Excellence Award has been a traditional highlight of our Annual

in which our Annual Dinner is to be held. All but one recipient have been
present to receive their award. At our Annual Dinner in Lisbon, Portugal, the
recipient could not attend, due to travel distance from Spain. Naturally, this
was disappointing. Request a Makeup Confirmation
