This Week at Rotary

Our Rotary District Governor John LoBosco joined the Rotary Club of South Portland-Cape Elizabeth, Maine, in 2005 and served as its President in 2010-11. He served on the club’s board for six years and as an Assistant Governor in the Portland area from 2013-2016. 

He enjoys working with clubs on long-term planning. His favorite Rotary event every year is the Rotary Christmas tree and wreath sale at Mill Creek Park in South Portland. 

John is an attorney at Unum Life Insurance Company of America in Portland. He is a graduate of Cornell University and Georgetown University Law Center. 

John resides in Cape Elizabeth with his wife, Sue (an adoption social worker). 

Tara Jenkins is responsible for the team that defines and implements the key experiences and practices that will attract employees to IDEXX and keep them highly engaged and retained. Her team drives the employee engagement strategy, the strategic talent planning process, the employee value proposition, corporate social responsibility, talent planning & assessment, the IDEXX performance experience, the IDEXX competency framework, innovative talent product development and deployment using business product management methodologies, talent analytics, and employee marketing and communications. 

Prior to joining IDEXX, Tara worked in all areas of the HR discipline with increasing levels of leadership responsibility. After graduating from Cornell University with an Industrial and Labor Relations degree, Tara began her career in a large investment management company, The Capital Group Companies, based in California. Over the past 20 years she has worked in a variety of industries, including head of HR at one of the largest regional law firms in the Northeast US and at a national environmental engineering firm. While at IDEXX over the past five years she has been a Senior HR Business Partner, the leader of Total Rewards and Communications, and the HR leader for the international business, working in the Netherlands.   She received her master’s degree in Organizational Development and Leadership while working at IDEXX. 

The Rotary Club of Portland, along with Greater Portland Health, is hosting a Second 4-week session Recovery Coach Academy class.

Sessions start October 27 and will be held at USM. We are hoping to get a few Rotarians to do this training and become recovery coaches.

This training is free and open to anyone who wants to participate and help those dealing with substance use disorder. We encourage Rotarians to please share this opportunity with others you know who might be good candidates.
