Vicki Puliz
Rotary International Director 2021-23
Rotary Club of Sparks, Nevada
Nevada, USA


Vice chair of The Rotary Foundation Peace Centers Committee starting July 1, 2024, Vicki served as Rotary International Director for the term 2021-2023. Vicki was a member of the Board’s Executive Committee, chair of the RI Participant Experience/Program Committee, and Board liaison to the RI Strategic Planning Committee and Youth Advisory Council.  A proud member of the Rotary Club of Sparks, Nevada, Vicki served as club president in 2004-2005, as Governor for District 5190 in 2013-2014, and as a Rotary Public Image Coordinator 2016-2019.

Vicki’s passion for leadership development has led to involvement in a number of Rotary roles, including District Trainer for District 5190, International Assembly Training Leader, Governor Elect Training Seminar (GETS) chair, faculty and Education Chair for Far West President Elect Training (PETS), and part of a Rotary Fellowship focused on leadership development.  She actively works in Rotary and the community to promote Rotary as a leadership organization, including involving Rotary with the Reno + Sparks Chamber of Commerce annual leadership program.

Many of her most impactful experiences in Rotary are those involving young people: Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA), co-creation of a leadership program for 12–13-year-olds, Rotary Youth Exchange, introduction of experiential team building processes to a RYLA camp in Benin, Africa, and part of the inaugural Youth Advisory Council in 2022-2023 that recognizes the value of Youth Voice in strategic discussion at all levels of Rotary programs for young leaders and to the Board of Directors.

Vicki and her husband Tim participated in a National Immunization Day in northern India in 2009.  Giving those two precious drops to a 2-year-old child at a train station in Moradabad and other life changing experiences of the NID made polio eradication very personal to them both.

Vicki graduated from the University of Utah with a Marketing degree and Master of Business Administration and went on to own a commercial electrical contracting firm in northern Nevada for 19 years before merging it into a public traded entity. 

Vicki and Tim live in Reno, Nevada, at the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Their blended family includes seven adult children, ten grandchildren, and three Rotary Youth Exchange daughters. Their interests include outdoor activities and general aviation. Vicki and Pilot Tim are members of the International Fellowship of Flying Rotarians. They support Our Rotary Foundation as Major Donors and members of the Paul Harris Society, Polio Plus Society, and the Bequest Society.
