We are extremely sad to inform that Past RI President Cliff Dochterman (1992 - 93) is no more.
It has been said that Cliff Dochterman has spoken to more Rotary Clubs than anyone in the world. Over the past 50 years, he has served in almost every Rotary assignment, from Berkeley Rotary Club president to worldwide President of Rotary International in 1992-93. He has traveled the world on humanitarian projects and has been honored by the heads of state in many nations.
He had a 45-year career as an administrator at University of California at Berkeley and the University of the Pacific in Stockton. He has had a lifetime association with the Boy Scouts of America, and is a former president of the local Chamber of Commerce and chairman of the county Parks and Recreation Commission. Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge has recognized his speeches with the George Washington Honor Medal.
His RI theme was 'Real Happiness Is Helping Others'
He and his wife, Mary Elena belong to the Rotary Club of Moraga, near San Francisco, California.
RIP Cliff Dochterman.

Thank you John Pennypacker for alerting us to this loss.  John shared a link to a video of Cliff Dochterman educating incoming District Governors about how to effectively lead Rotary volunteers.  It is a good lesson for any leader.  CLICK HERE to view a classic presentation titled "You Are The Conductor."
