President's Message
Leading The Way To End Human Trafficking

To me, leadership is relentlessly pursuing your goals and inspiring others to have your back along the way. In our club, this manifests itself on a regular basis in Dave McCleary. You can't help but be inspired by the passion that Dave puts into the fight to end modern slavery. You may or may not like the current administration, but it is impressive to see him recognized by the White House as a world leader on this issue and invited to be there in person for the announcement of additional funding.

This Week's Speaker
Scott Pederson - Positive Athlete

Scott has spent over 35 years of his career marketing some of the most high-profile events, corporations and celebrities in the world. He has staged a World Series, consulted with the NFL, NBA, NASCAR and Major League Baseball. He has also designed numerous programs for major companies such as Miller Brewing Company, Gatorade, and Delta Air Lines. Scott now focuses his efforts on the marketing and development of a program called Positive Athlete which has given away over $350,000 in scholarships to student-athletes who have overcome obstacles, given back to their communities, or been a positive influence in their schools.
