Welcome,  Steve Livingstone

 Jacksonville Armada, President

Steve Livingstone is the president of Jacksonville Armada FC. He came on board as the first employee of Jacksonville’s new professional North American Soccer League team in October 2013 following 17 years of leadership in the National Football League, the last eight of which he spent directing in the areas of business development, sales and marketing for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Prior to immigrating to Jacksonville in 2005 from Scotland, Livingstone was the team president and general manager of the Scottish Claymores in the NFL Europe League.  Steve began his professional sports career in media and journalism, where he was a sportswriter and editor with a number of national media outlets from 1991-1996.

With the Jaguars, Livingstone directed the club’s business development and marketing efforts from 2005-2013, during which he established the Champions Club, a highly successful fan volunteer program which assisted the team in selling and renewing over 10,000 season tickets.

More recently, Livingstone has built the Armada FC front office from scratch and directed the successful brand and competitive launch of the club, which debuted in front of 14,000 against the MLS Philadelphia Union at EverBank Field on February 7, 2015.

An optimistic amateur golfer in rare moments of free time, Steve is married to Jeanine and the couple have two daughters, Erin and Olivia.

Northeast Florida has a new Rotary e-Club

Since Rotary E-Club of Northeast Florida is now official and we are sure our web site is fully operational, Rotarians in our district can attend our club meetings to do their make-ups.  Also, we encourage them to join in the conversations with our members.

Here is the address again:
Here's the instructions:  These are found on the home page of the club site.

Visiting Rotarians:   If you are a visiting Rotarian wishing to make up a meeting with our club, please select the tab in the left menu entitled "Member Signup".  Sign in as a "Visiting Rotarian" to get you started. Once in, click "Next" at the bottom of the Member Interest page.  This information is for members only.

Rotary International requires that visiting Rotarians who plan to use our club for a make-up spend a minimum of 20 minutes in the site. The program portion of the meeting will provide you with the 20 minutes you need.  However, you are invited to visit the entire meeting.

A minimum donation of 5.00 is required and must be separate from any additional contribution. To donate more, please go back to the main menu and click on the Donation link.  Make your contribution in the Miscellaneous category.
