District 6290 | DGE Jon Catlin
Jon’s involvement in Rotary started in the fall of 1984 when he applied and was accepted to be a Rotary Exchange Student with the Rotary Club of Midland. He joined Rotary in 1995 to give back to the Club that supported him and support the Club’s efforts locally and internationally. When he moved to a new community, Rotary was a great way to network with other business leaders and to learn about the community. He has previously served as a Club President of the Rotary Club of Cadillac in 2010-2011 and has served as the District Treasurer, Assistant Governor and other Club and District Positions and Committees. He is a member of the Paul Harris Society. His passion is working with the youth and has hosted exchange students and his son was a Rotary Exchange Student to Taiwan in 2015-2016.
