DISTRICT GOVERNOR BETTE HALL

A member of Calabasas Rotary Club since 2007, Bette Hall has held various positions, both within her Club and District 5280. Positions held include Club Avenues of Service and Events Chair, Board member, Club President, Assistant Governor, District Trainer for several years, and three years as the Senior Assistant Governor, Youth Services for District 5280.  She has also chaired both the 2019 District Club Assembly and District Conference. Her current District position is the Senior Assistant Governor, Education and Training, as well as District Governor.
 
Bette has been very involved in developing and providing training for the Youth Protection Program and if asked to select an area she is most passionate about in Rotary, the answer has to be our Youth Programs. In 2017 Bette was one of two members who received the Rotarian of the Year award for District 5280, the other being none other than Past District Governor Melody St. John.  She is very honored to be selected as District 5280 Governor, 2020-21.
 
Originally from London, England, Bette is a long-time resident of the West San Fernando Valley, and retired a few years ago from a long and varied career in Human Resources after holding positions such as Director and Vice President of Human Resources for large, multi-state/International companies, prior to running her own HR consulting company.
 
What Bette enjoys most about retirement is having more time to volunteer with Rotary and an extra bonus – spending more time with her family, and especially the grandchildren.  She feels very fortunate to have them all living within easy driving distance, and being able to go to their activities, including baseball games, to cheer them on.
