    We had another successful year with Group Study Exchange. An outstanding team from Germany was here in November and December. I hope you saw their presentation at the District Conference or your club, or just had the chance to meet them. Our exceptional outbound team will be leaving in May for Germany to spend a month learning about the culture of Germany and their vocations there. With the new future vision plan, GSE will change to vocational training team. I will tell you what that means for all of us.**First the similarities of the two programs. VTT is still an educational program of the foundation in which we exchange with another district. It involves international travel for the teams of at least one month duration, with expenses paid by the foundation. And a goal is to foster goodwill, peace and understanding among nations.**Our district will apply for a global grant to cover expenses. The focus will be more on providing service or training to another country or receiving training so not as many cultural activities as before though teams are still immersed in the culture.Rather than traditional exchange where members could have any occupation, there must be a focus in one of the 6 areas that you have been hearing about all day.The VTT can be providing service with a new or existing sustainable project, such as the water project in Gyana or sustainable Cambodia. The focus of the inbound and outbound teams does not have to be the same. Whatever the focus is, there might be several occupations represented. For a water project, we might need an engineer, a biologist, a physician, and an environmentalist. Their must be a Rotarian team leader and 3 non-Rotarians bu the rest of the team can be composed of more Rotarians or relatives of Rotarians, which was never allowed with GSE.*
