Rotary is changing for the better.  The outcome is a greater vibrancy and effectiveness, so how can you make this work to the advantage of your club?
Rotarians taking up leadership roles in their clubs have the opportunity in the leadup to their time in these roles to learn about the aspects of Rotary that are a part of these roles.  These District training events are comprehensive and ensure club leaders are well prepared for the Rotary year ahead.  These include: assistant Governor and Key District Chair Training (November), President-Elect Training 1 (November), South Pacific Presidents-Elect Training Seminar - all districts together (March), and Leaders Elect Training Seminar - open to all Rotarians (May).
As the new Rotary year starts club leaders have immediate access to support from their Assistant Governors and District Committees as they request it and Rotarians are encouraged to pick up the phone and ask the questions as they have that need.  There are also occasional District Committee Seminars (eg.  Membership, Rotary Foundation and International this year).
A new initiative this year is to make use of available technology and periodically hold an on-line panel meeting for any Rotarian, not just club leaders, with questions about Rotary.  The first was held in June to assist incoming club leaders with any questions following the district training that they may have had as they created their plans for the new Rotary year.  The second was early August to enable any questions that had arisen now that those plans were being implemented to be asked.  Both have provided great advice and support for those attending.
ZOOM is free, safe and very effective on-line meeting software – if using for the first time you will be asked to download as you use the link so just follow the instructions.  The meeting will be Chaired by Jennie Herring.
