PETS Speaker Biographies

David C. Forward          

District 7500 Governor 


David is a transplanted Englishman who has been a Rotarian for 37 years. He has served three times as club president, and on the district level was district conference chair, membership chair, and district chair of the very first PolioPlus Campaign when his team tripled their goal and raised more than one million dollars for this visionary Rotary project.

Although he is a Realtor by vocation, David has always enjoyed writing. He has penned more than 500 magazine articles for journals as diverse as Airways Magazine and Golf Digest and was twice a finalist for the global Aviation Journalist of the Year. He has written 12 books, including the popular Frank Talk series, which he co-wrote with Past R.I. President Frank Devlyn. After reviewing a worldwide group of over 180 writers, the R.I. Board unanimously selected David to research and write the book commemorating the first 100 years of Rotary's history: A Century of Service. Rotary International came back to ask David to pick up his fountain pen again when the Foundation Trustees decided to have a book in time for the centennial of The Rotary Foundation. That is now in production and will be released at next year's International Assembly.

David is a popular speaker at district conferences and multi-district PETS around the world, and two R.I. Presidents have invited him to be a keynote speaker at Rotary International Conventions.

But David is happiest when he is "in the trenches" serving above self. As a Commissioned Lay Pastor, he volunteers as a hospital chaplain and is a frequent pulpit preacher. He continues as volunteer president of the Romanian orphanage he founded in 1991, and he has led mission teams to take relief to tornado victims in Joplin (MO), polio immunization teams to India, and three groups a year to help the children in Romania.

David has been named Realtor of the Year by the Burlington-Camden County Association of Realtors, and national winner of the Good Neighbor Award by the 1.2-million-member National Association of Realtors. Rotary International conferred the Citation for Meritorious Service on him for his contributions to the polio eradication effort.

He and his wife Chris live in Medford, New Jersey and District 7500 in New Jersey has elected David to be District Governor in 2015-16.
