Keynote Speakers

Gary Bergenske

Imperial Sir

Shriner's International

Bergenske served three successful years as Chairman of the Shriners International all-star college football event, the East-West Shrine Game®. During his years as a member of the boards of directors, he has served on numerous committees, including as Chairman of the Public Relations, Fraternal Strategic Planning, Information Services, Insurance, Protocol, and Capital Evaluation Committees. In addition, he has served as the Liaison Officer to the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Erie, Springfield, Houston, Galveston, Portland, Honolulu and Spokane. He served on the Executive Committee of the Imperial Membership Committee for 14 years, and was a charter member of both the TRAC and PACE Teams. He has also been an inspirational keynote speaker and presenter at Imperial conferences for Oriental Guides, Assistant Rabbans, Public Relations, Donor Relations and Membership. During the time Bergenske was a member of the Imperial Membership Executive Committee, he came up with the idea of having a Shriners mascot to not only promote the fraternity but to also attract younger generations, which resulted in the development of Fez Head Fred. While serving as Membership Chairman of Bahia Shriners, Bergenske created and developed the Mentor Program to get new members involved. Shriners now use this program throughout the world. In 1985, Bergenske purchased J & J Metro Moving and Storage, which he has owned and operated for the past 30 years. In addition, Bergenske is a motivational speaker and has written three books. His books discuss ways to “Build a Better Life” and “Become a Better Leader” and are available in more than 10 countries, where they are making a positive difference in people’s lives.
