Greetings to all Rotarians and friends in District 9455,
 
Our District voted with a resounding ‘yes’ to the Regionalisation Pilot Project. Our thanks to the Assistant Governors and Club Presidents for your diligence in making this vote happen. We now need to wait to see what will come next but rest assured, the focus is on improving our current practices – working smarter, not harder!
 
Covid is still affecting us in one way or another, I finally succumbed the virus and as I write this, we are almost at the end of Geoff’s isolation as he tested positive just as I was finishing my term. We have been more fortunate than most, our symptoms appear to be abating quickly, our thoughts and best wishes to those of you who are still suffering.
 
The consequences have unfortunately been that yet again some of the DG visits have had to be re-scheduled, thank you for your patience.
 
As you will hopefully recall, we are focussing on Public Image this year, how is that going for you personally and in your club? Congratulations on reading this newsletter, please take the time to consider the challenges below and to share them with your club. Feel free to let me know of your experiences!
 
Our next Adventure is in marketing and will be on Friday 11th November, again on zoom so everyone can participate. We are liaising with experts in the field and if you would like to be part of that team, please let me know. Registration details will come out closer to the time.
 
Your challenge, should you choose to accept it ……
 
This month’s challenge … to wear your Rotary pin when out and about. Your pin might prompt an enquiry or comment from someone, giving you the opportunity to share why you are in Rotary and invite them to a Rotary event. It need not be a club meeting, but perhaps one of the events you are attending.
 
Have you lost your pin? You can easily buy another one here Maybe check with your other club members and put in a bulk order; you might not be the only one who has misplaced it!
 
Past challenges, in case you missed them:
 
1. July - The first challenge was to check out if there is one of those Rotary road signs in your area or on your way as you move around our State. Is it in good repair? If not, then please remove or fix it as it will be detrimental to the public image of Rotary if it looks old and tired.
 
2. August - Check your club’s website and see if it is up to date, particularly the calendar. This is sometimes the first place prospective Rotarians look and if the information is old, it also doesn’t give a good impression as to the current situation of the club.
 
3. September - When did you last talk to someone about why you are in Rotary and invite them to come with you to an event, project or a meeting? If it was more than a month ago, then I challenge you to try it again … did you know that most people join Rotary because they were invited?
 
Yours in Rotary service,
Ineke

The District Membership Committee is looking for enthusiastic members who are interested in coming together to help start new clubs in our district!
 
The team will work with the an experience member of the Membership Committee, who has helped to start multiple Rotary clubs, to assess geographic areas, demographics or causes which may not currently be represented in Rotary. The goal is to help that community start a new club, without impacting an existing nearby club. 
 
Rotary is such an amazing opportunity, so you will be helping more people experience Rotary, who may not have found their club yet or who may not be able to access a club.
The commitment is about 1 hour per month. 
 
Please email Samantha Fewster, Membership and Club Development Director, to express your interest in being part of this team (samantha.fewster@rotaryeq.org).
