For more than 100 years the Rotary Club has united diverse cultures all over the world to create positive lasting change where it was needed in the areas of peace, disease, water, maternity, children, education, and local economies. Rotary held its district convention here recently, and one of the attendees was a giant in Rotary from the Malibu, California, area, Nick Frankle. Frankle will address Rotary Tuesday, May 3, at 12:30pm at Hotel Misión, Salida a Querétaro 1. He will share personal stories about how Rotary changes the world for the better, one life at a time. The presentation will be free and in English.

Frankle joined Rotary in 2002. He was club president in 2006–07. During his year as president, the club was selected the best medium club in his district and the best large service organization in his home community. Other positions of service Frankle has held are almost too numerous to mention, including club service chair, international service chair, foundation chair, assistant governor, executive assistant governor, membership chair, and communications chair. He and his wife, Heather, a member of another Rotary Club, served the district as co-chief operating officers. Frankle is district governor elect and will serve as district governor in 2016–17. The pair are major donors, benefactors, and members of the Bequest Society. Frankle is also a member of the Paul Harris Society. In 2012–13, he received his district’s service-above-self award. Frankle has participated in international projects in Mexico, Honduras, and South Africa. Frankle holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in physics from Johns Hopkins University. He worked summers as a computer programmer for NASA and then earned a Master of Science degree in computer science. He was the operations executive responsible for the first seamless international data communications network, a position that took him around the world and introduced him to the cultural differences of doing business in 30 countries. Today, he is a business unit manager for a high technology firm developing advanced predictive analytics technology for the Department of Defense. Frankle has also taught classes to nonprofit organizations on the use of technology to reduce costs and increase fundraising.
