Rotary District 5440 Assistant Governors
Rotary District 5440 has 17 Assistant Governors (AG).  The job of an AG is not to manage your club but to be a resource to your club.  To bounce ideas off of if something isn't working in your club.  Perhaps they have visited with their fellow AGs and another club has a similar circumstance.  Your AG is your sounding block.  Don't be afraid to reach out to him/her for help.
Albon Shaw
AG for Casper, Casper 5 Trails, Casper Reveille & Douglas, WY
 

Having joined Rotary in 2014, Albon has enjoyed being involved in many different roles. His pension for saying “Yes!” was quickly discovered and led to him being nominated to the board of directors shortly after joining, then being chosen to serve as president of Casper Five Trails Rotary for 2018-19. That year his club was honored with the Outstanding Club President of a Medium/Small club award. He has served on and headed many club committees including public relations & membership. Internationally, Albon and his daughter, Elle, travelled to Nicaragua for a service trip with Rotarians from the Gillette Energy Rotary Club providing school uniforms, school supplies, and doing repairs on schools. Albon also attended the Rotary International Convention in Toronto and plans on a service trip with his son to Guatemala once such travel is allowed again. At the district level Albon serves on the nominating committee helping to choose upcoming District Governors and serves as the Assistant Governor for the Central Wyoming Rotary Clubs in Casper & Douglas. Professionally, Albon has been in Real Estate since 2009 and is the owner operator of Team WyoCity at Real Estate Leaders. He also works with his wife and fellow Rotarian, Kammi Shaw, in her real estate investment & flipping business Flipping WyoCity.

John Brown
AG for Lander, Riverton & Thermopolis
 

     John and his wife, Monica, moved from Delaware to Wyoming in 2011 with no job and no local friends to speak of. He did have computer skills and started his own IT services company, and that’s what put him in contact with a member of the Rotary Club of Lander. In 2012, John was invited to join which allowed him to make a slew of new friends and it also helped his business to become sustainable for his first three years in Lander. Eventually, John saw that one of the tribes on the Wind River Indian Reservation was looking to hire an Information Technology Director so he applied and was hired. John has been the IT director there for the last 6+ years and has enjoyed it very much.
     As president of the Rotary Club of Lander during the 2020-2021 Rotary Year, John’s focus was on food security and directed the Lander Club to raise funds to help secure funding to do its part to help feed the Lander community in uncertain times. The members of Rotary Club of Lander also volunteered many, many hours of time to take part in several service projects to also help address Lander’s food security.
     John is a third generation Rotarian. His mother, JoAnn Griffin, was a member of the Newark Rotary Club in Newark, Delaware, and his maternal grandfather, John B. Thomas, was a longtime member of the Rotary Club of Beaumont in Beaumont, Texas. John is extremely proud of his family’s tradition of service (even before Rotary was founded), and is very glad to be a member of the Rotary Club of Lander!
