Upcoming Meeting Information
June 4, 2020

This week our program will be Marshall Schmitt and Erik Cempel from Rotary Club One, Chicago. The topic is: The Paul Harris House - History, Restoration and Tour.

Marshall Schmitt is the 116th President of the Rotary Club of Chicago.  He has been a Rotarian for over 20 years.  He is a partner in the Chicago office of Michael Best & Friedrich LLP.  Marshall’s practice focuses on resolving disputes regarding scientific issues and counseling clients in chemical and biotechnology matters. A first chair litigator, trial lawyer, and member of the bar of the United States Patent and Trademark Office, his practice includes helping clients develop strategies for obtaining and effectively enforcing their intellectual property rights. 
As President of Rotary/One, Marshall has helped the Directors of the Paul & Jean Harris Home Foundation navigate the many challenges of preserving our heritage as Rotarians.  Marshall, Marshall’s wife – Linda -- and their three adult children are all Paul Harris Fellows of The Rotary Foundation.

Erik Cempel, PE, PMP, has been a member of the Rotary Club of Chicago for 10 years. He is focused on having a measurable impact on the community, particularly in education. Erik has served as Programs Chair, on the International Service Committee, and as JOB1 Business Relations lead for our Club’s jobs and scholarships program for Chicago’s disadvantaged youth.

Erik joined Rotary at the urging of his wife, a Rotarian from South Korea, in order to network. He has stayed in Rotary due to the fellowship, service, and the ability to learn about diverse fields while surrounded by service-oriented individuals.

Professionally, Erik has 19 years’ local, national, and international experience in the planning and implementation of transportation infrastructure and policy. He currently runs his own consulting firm, Cempel International Transportation Consulting. He shares his transportation and global experience as a guest lecturer at DePaul University.
