Dear fellow Rotarians, 

This is a sad moment for Rotary, as I must inform you that Sushil Gupta has resigned as president-nominee of Rotary International due to health reasons. 

This was a difficult decision for Sushil to make, and I understand and fully respect his choice to prioritize his health. He is firmly committed to continuing his work as a valued and respected member of our organization. Sushil has shared a message announcing his resignation, which you can all read on My Rotary

The 2018-19 Nominating Committee for President of Rotary International will convene electronically in the coming weeks to select Sushil’s replacement. Information about the selection process is also available on My Rotary

I have no doubt we will pick an excellent candidate to serve as RI President for the 2020-21 Rotary year. Please join me in wishing Sushil a complete and rapid recovery, and thank him for his service and dedication to Rotary. 

Barry Rassin
President, Rotary International 2018-19
