June 2016 Events
 
May 28
– June 1
    Rotary International Convention - Seoul, Korea 2016

Seoul — officially the Seoul Special City — is the capital and largest metropolis of South Korea. A megacity with a population of more than 10 million, it is the largest city proper in the developed world. The Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, is the world's second largest metropolitan area with over 25.6 million people, home to over half of South Koreans along with 632,000 international residents.

Situated on the Han River, Seoul's history stretches back more than 2,000 years when it was founded in 18 BCE by Baekje, one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. It continued as the capital of Korea under the Joseon Dynasty and the Korean Empire. The Seoul metropolitan area contains four UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Changdeok Palace, Hwaseong Fortress, Jongmyo Shrine and the Royal Tombs of the Joseon Dynasty. Seoul is surrounded by mountains, the tallest being Mt. Bukhan, the world's most visited national park per square foot. Modern landmarks include the iconic N Seoul Tower, Lotte World, the world's second largest indoor theme park, and Moonlight Rainbow Fountain, the world's longest bridge fountain. The birthplace of K-pop and the Korean Wave, Seoul was voted the world's most wanted travel destination by Chinese, Japanese and Thai tourists for three consecutive years in 2009–2011 with over 10 million international visitors in 2012.

Today, Seoul is considered a leading and rising global city, resulting from an economic boom and growth known as the Miracle on the Han River which transformed it from the ashes of the Korean War to the world's 4th largest metropolitan economy with a GDP of US$774 billion in 2012 after Tokyo, New York City and Los Angeles. A world leading technology hub, it boasts the world's sixth largest number of Fortune Global 500 multinationals such as Samsung, the world's largest technology company, as well as LG, SK, and Hyundai-Kia. Gangnam is the commercial center along with Yeoui Island forming the financial center and Digital Media City being the technology hub. Jongno and Central District are the historical and cultural center of Seoul. Ranked sixth in the Global Power City Index, the metropolis exerts influence among global affairs as one of the five leading hosts of global conferences.

 CINDY J. ARENBERG SELTZER

Cindy Arenberg Seltzer is the first President/CEO of the Children's Services Council of Broward County.  In that role, she has carefully guided the development of the organization, which was created by the voters of Broward County in September, 2000, and reauthorized by the voters in 2014.  She works hard to dramatically transform young lives through a focus on supporting proven programs delivered by more than 100 "provider" agencies that achieve measureable outcomes, while ensuring transparency and accountability for the CSC.  Her leadership and advocacy on behalf of the children of Broward County has made a real difference for all Broward residents, and especially for Broward's children.

Prior to being named President/CEO of the Children's Services Council, Mrs. Arenberg Seltzer was Director of the Children's Services Administration Division for Broward County.  Other positions she has held include: Director, Massachusetts Promise; Director, Legislative and Government Affairs at Day, Berry & Howard, Attorneys-at-Law; Chief of Staff  to the Majority Leader, Connecticut House of Representatives; 6th District Field Coordinator with Friends of (U.S. Senator) Chris Dodd/Connecticut Clinton Campaign; Commercial Litigation and Bankruptcy Associate with Robinson & Cole; Director of Public Policy with the Gold Institute; and Director of Governmental Relations with the Industry Council for Tangible Assets.

Mrs. Arenberg Seltzer has a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California at Irvine, a Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University Law Center, and a Masters in Public Administration from Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government.

She serves on several boards of directors, including the Early Learning Coalition, the Coordinating Council of Broward, the Children and Families Leadership Association, and the Pediatric Associates Foundation Advisory Council.  She is a Women of Tomorrow mentor at Stoneman Douglas High School, and she also hosts the local television show "Future First: Focus on Broward's Children," which airs on BECON TV.

Her awards include Heart Gallery's "Spring for Kids" award (2014), Kiwanis Club of Lauderdale Lake's "Community Advocate Award" (2014), Impact Broward's "Individual Award" (2014), HANDY's Champion for Children (2011), Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute's Angel in Adoption (2011), Child Advocacy Award from the Jewish Federation of Broward County (2007), "Lead Vocalist" award from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Broward (2007), recognition on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives by Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz during a tribute for Women's History Month (2006), March of Dimes Woman of Distinction (2005), "Advocate of the Year" by First Call for Help (2004), and "Mother of the Year" by Healthy Mothers-Healthy Babies (2004).

In addition to her official duties, Mrs. Arenberg Seltzer can often be found working in Broward's neighborhoods to raise money for its children.  For example, she participated in the first season of Dancing with the Stars for the Pantry of Broward and came in second, she worked the counter at McDonald's to raise money to fight Sickle Cell, and she was a Celebrity Chef for FLIPANY.
