Bill McElroy, Rotary District 5030 Governor, “District 5030 Update”
Bill was born in Seattle and attended Washington State University. He comes from a Rotary family — his grandfather was a distinguish Rotarian with Seattle 4 — so, in 1985, when Bill was invited to join the Rotary Club of Kirkland, he joyfully accepted. Bill was only 31 then, but he remembers the conversations and voting for women in Rotary and Polio Plus.
In 1990, Bill left “Wall Street” and decided to start his own company. Due to business requirements, he reluctantly left Rotary. In 1998, after relocating his firm closer to his home, he joined the Rotary Club of Mill Creek. Bill has held various Club and District positions and is a Paul Harris Society and Bequest Society member. His passion is helping other Rotarians follow their passion.
Bill continues working as a portfolio manager in the company he founded, Guardian Plus, Inc. Living just outside the City of Mill Creek Bill and his wife Sally have landscaped their 2½ acres, where they raised their 2 daughters. It is there you will find them, usually after a day of working in the yard, their feet up on the table and Sally enjoying her champagne.
