Hayward Rotary will continue a tradition of kicking off the beginning of each calendar year with a presentation by noted economists on Jan. 13 when Wesley Blundell, PhD, will give his thoughts on economic growth for the next decade. Dr. Blundell is assistant professor in the Department of Economics at California State University, East Bay, where his research includes environmental economics, industrial organization, and applied microeconomics.
A special evening meeting to celebrate the holidays! On Monday, Dec 16 join your friends at the Hayward Rotary Club as we toast to  each other and another great year of 'Service above self'. Social hour begins at 5:30pm followed by dinner, revelry and some usual Rotary business as well.
The price of admission is your usual lunch ticket (that's right), so bring your family and your friends!  Kindly RSVP here:
Rosie Rios is the CEO of Red River Associates, a real estate consulting  firm, and has recently completed
her term as a Visiting Scholar at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University with a focus
on Millennials and Post-Millennials. She was the 43rd Treasurer of the United States and is most recently known
for initiating and leading the efforts to place a portrait of a woman on U.S. currency for the first time
in over a century. Upon her resignation in 2016, she received the highest honor bestowed in the
U.S. Department of the Treasury. Rosie was the longest serving Senate-confirmed Treasury official
beginning with her time on the Treasury/Federal Reserve Transition Team in November 2008
at the height of the financial crisis.
In her role as Treasurer of the United States, Rosie was the CEO of the Bureau of Engraving and
Printing and the U.S. Mint, including Fort Knox. Her day-to-day responsibilities included overseeing all
currency and coin production activities with almost 4,000-employees in eight facilities nationwide
and an annual budget of approximately $5 billion. In the first five years of her tenure, she saved over
$1 billion by implementing efficiencies and innovative concepts while meeting increased production
demand and increasing employee morale at record levels. Her signature currently appears on a
world-record $1.69 trillion of U.S. currency out of the approximately $1.71 trillion in circulation worldwide.
Rosie is a graduate of Harvard University and was selected as the first Latina in Harvard’s 383-year history
to have a portrait commissioned in her honor. Her portrait was officially unveiled at Winthrop House in
May of 2019. She currently serves on the board of Fidelity Charitable Trust, the Schlesinger Council at
Harvard and the Advisory Committee for Artemis Real Estate Partners. She was previously a Trustee with
the Alameda County Employees Retirement Association (ACERA). In 2018, she was appointed as a
member of America 250, the Congressional Commission to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the
nation’s founding in 2026. She serves on the Executive Committee and is the Chair of the Finance and
Audit Committees and is leading the strategic planning process. Her personal passion includes serving as
Founder and CEO of EMPOWERMENT 2020, an initiative that facilitates the physical recognition of
historical American women. Its first project, Teachers Righting History, recognizes historical American
women in classrooms across the country. She has also launched Notable Women, an Augmented Reality
educational initiative in collaboration with Google. She remains active in real estate finance and is
consulting on several transformational projects in the Bay Area under her “RESCUE” initiative: Real Estate
for Socially Conscious Urban Empowerment.
