Expanding Your Role
Beyond Your Club
Say Yes, to Lead
Serving District 4 was an extraordinary leadership and learning experience. Through being Area Director I met other women I greatly admire and many of whom have become life-long friends. I am so glad I said YES to serving in this role. Service in Zonta is truly a very rewarding experience. I would recommend you let your name stand for a position in leadership.
Past Area Director
I was very reluctant to take on the position of Lieutenant Governor, leading of course to be the Governor. My initial response was “no- I’m too busy, I don’t have the time, I’m not capable”. But after conferring with my club mates, the nominating committee member and my family, I agreed. It turned out to be an amazing experience spread over the four years. Although I felt some relief when my successor took over, the stronger feeling was a sadness that it was over, and a deep satisfaction with all that I had learned and accomplished. Along the way I met so many amazing women whose paths never would have crossed mine. If asked, please consider it carefully. It is an extremely rewarding experience.

ZONTA CLUB OF HAMILTON 1 / AREA 2
Experience at the District level is important as it provides a look at the “bigger” picture of Zonta, especially if the district includes different countries and customs as these can affect how Zonta functions within these environments. Understanding how Zonta functions at the International level means that one has to be receptive to thinking outside one’s local culture and being willing to see things from another point of view.
There are many opportunities for club leaders to share their knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for the continued achievement of the goals of Zonta at the District level. Why not get involved and share your leadership skills with others by being a part of the leadership team for the District. For the most part in my professional life I have always worked alone, no team or group work. Being on the board has given me the experience of working with others for a common goal.
