Brad Jenkins, from the Rotary Club of Bernardsville, New Jersey, started his diplomatic career long before he became a Rotary Representative to the United Nations/ New York in 2001. Indeed, through his professional and personal work, Brad has traveled to more than 100 countries. He is a world class photographer and a member of the Rotary Foundation’s Arch Klumph Society.
Brad early on became a student of our well-known first Rotary Representative Sylvan “Barney” Barnet and learned much about the United Nations from him including the many joys and challenges of organizing a Rotary Day at the United Nations. It was under Brad’s leadership that our UN Day grew from a local event to become a key event on the Rotary calendar. Indeed, he led more than eight Rotary Days at the United Nations.
Brad, can you please join me at the podium? We thank you, Brad, for your untiring service in the true spirit of Rotary. May this plaque be a reminder of our gratitude for your diplomatic efforts, good counsel, and uncompromised service for Rotary at the United Nations."
