2023 - 2024 Board Members
Nicholas Goettsche
Message from Nick: "My Rotary journey started with my wife, who joined the Rotary Club of Northwest Austin. I saw the good work that her Rotary club did in their community and decided to get involved. I joined the Rotary Club of Pflugerville shortly after we moved to Pflugerville in 2019. Little did I know that in only three years I would be chosen to serve as my club’s President-Elect for the 2023-2024 year. Rotary has inspired me to put service above self and to find impactful ways to support my community. 
I am a property tax attorney specializing in the funding of local school districts, cities, and counties. In my spare time, I like to make my own wine and play board games."

She is currently employed as the Production Manager (bilingual) for Mpact Roofing.

Message from Barbara “I think that finding a way to serve your community is important. No matter how you choose to serve! It feeds your soul and your heart in a way that not much else can. After I lost my Mom in 2011 and had my battle with cancer in 2012, it was like something was itching inside of me asking me to find a way forward to help others. Something was telling me that my purpose in life had not been found yet, and it was time to start figuring out what that purpose was.  Then I met one of the founding members of our club and she asked me if I wanted to come to a meeting. I knew nothing about Rotary at that time, but I agreed to go. Before my first meeting I went on a deep dive to figure out what this Rotary thing was about. After so many beautiful stories and articles about Rotary’s work in the world, something stirred inside of me, and I knew I needed to have faith in God’s plan for my life and go to that meeting. I am so grateful to that neighbor for inviting me - Rotary has changed my life. It gave me a goal and a mission; it gave me a purpose! I met my Rotary family and knew I was where I belonged. A place where I could use my time and talent to work side by side with like-minded individuals. Side by side with others who have a passion for giving back and helping others – while having an absolute blast serving. I think that’s the key – I am not just part of a Service Organization; I am part of an amazing Rotary family that comes together in times of need to do our part to make the world just a little bit better. I am part of a family that extends far beyond the borders of our Pflugerville Community, and I am so blessed to be a part of Rotary. I am blessed to be called A Rotarian!”

Casey Nall
Immediate Past President
Message from Casey: "I’ve been a member of the Rotary Club of Pflugerville for six years. I became a Rotarian about a year ago. You may ask what the difference is, and you’d be right to do so. You see, prior to my “aha” moment, I participated in events, committees, and community involvement that the club had a hand in. I paid my dues, became a Paul Harris donor and more, but still wasn’t a Rotarian. A year ago, something clicked. A realization that we, Rotarians, are special because we do some pretty darn amazing things. We have organized major international projects to help eradicate diseases, employed and gathered resources to help people in crisis situations after natural disasters, helped provide wells to people in multiple countries (including our own) who didn’t have water, and so much more. WE do great things together. I sat back and imagined the things we have already done in our community; park rejuvenation projects, hundreds of thousands in college scholarships, community participation, tons of volunteering at the food bank over the past few years, and help feed kids through partner organizations and hands-on efforts. We also helped organize water distribution for our entire town during the 2021 freeze. And then I imagined, for a moment, a world without all of that. That sadness, coupled with the instant gratitude for an organization that mobilizes people to do things, BIG things, that one person wouldn’t normally be able to accomplish on his/her own without the help of others… that's when I realized I was a Rotarian, one of those people who helps."
Pete Tweed
Director at Large
Pete is a father and husband who loves serving his community.  Pete was born in Europe and has lived and worked in Asia, Africa, and the US. After moving to the US and a few years in California, he moved to Texas and found his home.  This variety in locations helped Pete understand that the world is a very small place and every community has people in need.
Pete works in technology, following in his father's and sister's footsteps.  Soon after starting his career he realized the real challenge is understanding how people work together in teams to achieve their objectives, and using a team's combined energy to serve the community in whatever endeavor they are focused on.  He brings this passion for service to Rotary and enjoys the camaraderie and friendships that are built by joining together to help others in the local, national and international community.
