District Assembly 2015
Last Saturday – 25th April – we held our 1220 District Assembly at Eastwood Hall with a record number of 360 Rotarians attending.
The purpose of the Assembly was for District Governor Elect Roger to convey the key message for his year, and through the breakout sessions, for the District Officers to provide information and facilitate discussions to generate ideas to help all Clubs prepare and plan for an exciting new Rotary year.
It was the first time we have used Eastwood for our Assembly, and we thought it would offer a more pleasant, and a distinctly more professional venue. We believe it worked really well and aided superbly by the Hotel staff.
Nevertheless it is the views of delegates that count and we are currently summarising all the evaluation forms submitted and as always we will use the key messages to help us improve in future years.
We are also collating all the output notes on the common question discussed in the breakout groups and we will share this with all Clubs when completed.
DGE Roger and the Leadership & Development Team really do hope all the Rotarians who attended did find the Assembly useful and a source of inspiration and enthusiasm to transfer into our Clubs through this next year.
May we take this opportunity to thank all attendees for making the effort to attend and for your cooperation and contributions to a successful Assembly.
Yours in Rotary John Barker
Retiring Chair of the District Leadership & Development Team
Looking to the new Rotary year there are two areas where the Leadership and Development Team need help please consider the requests below:
When District Treasurer Phil Harris took on the role he agreed a four year term. The next Rotary year will therefore be his last. To create continuity in this key role we need someone who will work with him from July this year and be ready to take over in July 2016.
If you feel you could make this important contribution to your District please contact Phil Harris direct or speak with the 2015/16 Training Officer PDG Gordon McGlone
The Youth Services Team need someone to organise the very successful YOUNG CHEF COMPETITION in the new Rotary Year. In addition to the District Competition, our District has been asked to organise the Regional Final. These events could be organised by an individual or a small sub-committee.
Could you help? Please contact 2015/16 Training Officer PDG Gordon McGlone.
