The Rotary Club of Safety Harbor is fortunate to have financial planner Mike Chapman speak at its regular meeting this Friday. Mike will educate us about The Rotary Foundation. As usual, Rotarians are welcome to make up and join us for this most vital presentation.
Mike and his wife, Jocelyn, met at The University of West Florida in 1977. They have been happily married since 1980.
The Chapman family moved to the Tampa Bay area at the completion of Mike’s service as a Naval Officer. He is a member of Raymond James and Associates and has a wealth management practice that spans both the Tampa Bay area and the entire nation.
Jocelyn is a Business Banker and the 2013-14 President of the Rotary Club of Clearwater. Mike and Jocelyn have two sons, Edward (Ted) and Richard (Rick). Ted is a graduate of Clemson University and currently serves as an officer in the U.S. Navy. Rick is graduate of Auburn University and currently serves as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Mike and Jocelyn are TRF Benefactors and members of both the Bequest Society and the Paul Harris Society – and all four members of the Chapman family are Paul Harris Fellows. Mike served as Club President in 1999-2000 and as Assistant Governor for three years beginning in 2010. He was selected as the 2011-12 District 6950 Assistant Governor of the Year and as the Keith Kurber ACE Award by District 6950 for the 2012-13 Rotary Year. Mike currently serves as the Vice Chairman of the District 6950 TRF committee, and he has been recently selected as Governor Nominee – Designee, slated to serve as District 6950 Governor for Rotary Year 2016-17.
When not involved with Rotary events and projects, Mike and Jocelyn enjoy sailing their 1981 Hunter 33 yacht, Knot Sure.
