SInce 2011, District 5340 has been privileged to be the host district for the Rotary International Assembly each January.  The assembly is a week long mandatory training event for District Governor Elects from every Rotary district in the world. 
During this assembly the incoming Rotary International President addresses the assembly on the first day and after announcing his goals for the upcoming Rotary year.  As part of his address, he also announces the theme for the year and the theme logo.  On the first day of the current assembly, Jan 14, the theme for 2019-2020 was unveiled. 
President-elect Mark Daniel Maloney's theme for 2019-2020 is "Rotary Connects The World" and is represented in the logo seen to the left above.  The theme is a recognition of the fact that Rotarians work together across the world in order to improve lives of people everywhere. Rotarians provide, not only the funding for projects everywhere in the world, they also provide much of the workforce for those projects
