Minutarian Week 30: January 23, 2022

Attention All President Elects!


PETS 2022 is right around the corner.

Whether you are a first time club president or serving as president for the second or even third time, you will not want to miss this year’s President Elect Training Seminar “PETS.”

It looks like we have a great line up this year and we are back in person!

Some of my best Rotary memories have been at the annual meeting of Florida PETS. Over 500 Rotary leaders from around the state will converge to learn from others, share ideas and be inspired by some of Rotary’s greatest. I look forward to seeing all of you from March 4th – 6th in Orlando.

Meet our new Public Image Chair, Amy Workowski from the Rotary Club of Daytona Beach!

Amy has resided in Daytona Beach with her husband Ken for 20 years via Chicago. Amy runs a successful advertising and event management firm aptly called The W Agency. The W Agency specializes in creative development, digital strategy and the utilization of events as a way to grow revenue. Amy’s client roster includes national accounts as well as ones in the Volusia/Flagler market.

Amy and Ken have a two-year-old white German shepherd named Beatrice who is the apple of their eye. Amy has been a member of the Rotary Club of Daytona Beach since 2015 and has served as the Club Communication Chair and the Webmaster.

She’s very involved in the community and serves or has served on various boards, including as the president of the Daytona Beach Police Foundation, president of The Junior League of Daytona Beach, president of the Daytona Beach Chapter of the American Advertising Federation, and the treasurer of the Museum of Arts & Sciences. Amy is also a proud member of the Civic League of the Halifax Area.

Amy is here to assist our clubs and members. Please reach out to her with any questions about how your club can enhance your public image. Email Amy at
