Aloha, Rotary!

Join Rotary President Mark Maloney at the 111th Rotary International Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, 6-10 June 2020. You’ll experience the heart of Hawaii in Honolulu – the state’s largest and most diverse city which has something for everyone. Attending the convention in Honolulu will be much more than a vacation; it’s an opportunity to make a lifetime of memories with people of action from across the globe.

As a leader you can make a difference in Rotarian attendance at the Rotary Convention. Now’s the time to extend a personal invitation to your members, encouraging them to attend the convention, make new friends, and experience the fun.

Share the excitement by downloading the promotional kit or by sharing the official promotional video to your social networks.


RESCA Program

Please find attached an information sheet on this year’s RESCA program.
We have had several successful applicants from our District in the last few years and it would be great to see more clubs getting involved in nominating Emergency Service Officers in their towns.
You will note that ACT Emergency Services are included this year.
I am available to assist with connecting you to the NSW RESCA Committee if you need any assistance.
