RI President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran announced his theme for 2015-16, Be a Gift to the World, at the opening session of Rotary's annual training event for incoming district leaders in San Diego, California, 18 January.
 
Ravindran is asking Rotary members worldwide to use their talents, expertise, and leadership to transform the lives of others.
 
‚Äč"All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting in San Diego, California, USA. "You have one year to take that potential and turn it into reality. One year to lead the clubs in your district and transform the lives of others. The time is so short, yet there is so much to be done."
