“Kia ora fellow members,
It has been a hectic Rotary week with a range of great events and activities.
I really enjoyed the RYLA graduation dinner last Friday night, what an amazing cohort of young leaders participating in a high quality Rotary programme, our three nominees loved it and we will hear more from them in due course.
On Saturday we had the District Governor Changeover and retiring District Governor (DG) Malini thanked our Club as her local host club, presenting us with an engraved Tanoa, that some of you would have seen at Lunch on Monday. Craig Horrocks was presented with a Paul Harris Fellow by DG Malini for his work at District and Zone and was formally welcomed as the DG Nominee.
World Press continues to do well and is slightly ahead of last year’s revenue level.  Please continue to promote it to your networks. A big thanks to Jeff Stangl for leading this important fundraising and profile event for us.
We have had our first meeting of the new Board and we have a strong focus on Membership Attraction led by Sophie Cousso and Membership Attraction led by Monika Levinson and their respective new committees. We are also engaging Massey University to develop a research project to help us develop the direction of RCA towards our Centenary and beyond, shaped by our members and partners.
I thought lunch last Monday was inspiring with Barnaby Marshall from the Flux Accelerator at The Icehouse setting the scene of what innovation is happening in Auckland, and Mark GATT from Think Ladder demonstrating the quality of early stage companies.
We were also joined at lunch by Michael Mueller from the Rotary Club of Freiburg in Germany, who is working on secondment in the bio department at the University of Auckland. Other guests were Dulantha Peiris from Think Ladder, Peter Dine as a guest of Shahrukh Abdali, and nice to see former member Nick Jack who came as a guest of Jacqui Bernards. Always good to see guests at our Club.
It was good to see members enjoying fellowship together and next Monday our lunch will focus on fellowship without a guest speaker, we will try and do this regularly to give more opportunity for members to interact. Petko has invited some young Rylarians to attend, it will be good to meet them. See you on Monday.”
Hei kona mai,

In response to the work of Mainly Music NZ ( with families who find life tough, a sale of art is being held on Thursday 19 July (5pm – 8pm), Friday 20 July (11am – 8pm) and Saturday 21 July (11am – 4pm).  The venue is Ngaire Avenue Community Church, Ngaire Ave, Newmarket.  Credit card facilities will be available.  Mainly Music is a not-for-profit organisation, which encourages churches to use a pre-school music programme to connect their communities.  We have also taken this programme into homes for teenage mothers, mothers with drug addictions, refugee centres, prison family units – and anywhere churches find it hard to reach.  We call this our ‘Excluded Communities’ programme – and we have unfortunately had to scale this back this year due to funding constraints.  The profits from this Art Sale will all go to the funding of this important work.
The Auckland Medical Research Foundation invites you to the next lecture in the series, Living Longer: A Social Revolution, on Thursday, 19 July at 7pm. Just email us at to RSVP.  Go to the following link for more information, and learn about the whole 50th Anniversary FMHS Lecture Series hosted by our partners, The University of Auckland, where you can hear from panels of prestigious speakers on a wide variety of health and medical topics including:

Are you a New Zealand European man aged between 20 and 30? If so, you are invited to participate in this Masters study.  This study is about New Zealand European identity, so if you have spent most of your life in NZ then you are welcome to come participate in individual interviews. The interviews will be roughly an hour long and can be held in a public space of your choosing, or at the University of Auckland.  I am looking for your unique perspective on New Zealand society as it is today and how it will be in the future. If you are interested, email me at (Approved by the University of Auckland Human Participants Ethics Committee on 07/05/2018 for three years. Reference Number 021210)
