Weekly Meeting 25 February 2019

This week we welcomed special guests honorary member Andrew Fraser MP, Nationals candidate Gurmesh Singh, and Paul Toole MP, the Minister for Lands, Forestry and Racing. Ross also welcomed our other guests Madeline Wardman, Kris Maguire and John Chittick.

President Elect Paul McLeod reported on the recent President Elect Training Seminar (PETS) at Tamworth. There are not expected to be any major changes in the forthcoming Rotary year and it will remain basically “business as usual”. The focus is to be on membership, communities and youth.

District Governor Elect Phil Hafey’s motto is “Strengthening
Local Communities”. Youth protection will be a strong focus. The DG’s visit to our club is scheduled for 26 August 2019.

Jay Clowes advised he has been working on some new membership initiatives, namely having a club WhatsApp group with all members having access. This will improve communications and allow immediate news, messages & notifications to be given and seen by all members.  Additionally, Jay has devised a satisfaction survey and will send it to all members shortly. When received, please complete it and get it back to Jay as soon as you can.
