Kia ora Members

Thanks to those members who came along to our networking lunch on Wednesday, it was good to be able to get around and talk with so many of you and it was also nice to host Colleen Singleton from the Rotary Club of Wellington.
 
The big news I shared with the members at the lunch is that we have raised almost $70,000 from the World Press Photography Exhibition this year, which is a phenomenal result, thanks to everyone involved. Special thanks to Jeff Stangl for his expert leadership of the program and supervision of our event management company Crackerjack, Jacqui Bernards for herding the volunteers and filling in when some did not turn up, and Tony Caughey for the contribution of the venue from Smith & Caughey.
 
I need a member willing to take over chairing our Youth Committee, could you please contact me if you are interested.  This is one of the really interesting portfolio areas for the club driving our engagement through programmes like Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) - I personally find these activities inspiring and at the front end of what impact Rotary can make in our local community.  There will be expert support and mentoring for the Chair, and a committee to support you, so please don’t be shy, take advantage of this opportunity to lead.
 
Registrations are open for Breakfast with the Minister of Finance Hon Grant Robertson, Iet’s use the opportunity to get potential members and guests along.
 
Have a great weekend and see you on Monday when we will have Mark Yates from Ecotricity NZ will be addressing the Club.  It should be fascinating.

Rotary National Science & Technology Forum
Each January around 168 of New Zealand’s top science students spend two weeks of their holidays at a special Forum in Auckland, prior to starting their last year at High School.  These students apply through their schools to their local Rotary Clubs and are selected for their grades and all-round ability.  The University of Auckland, AUT and Massey University combine resources to present diverse and stimulating academic sessions & experiences across a wide range of sciences & technologies. This is augmented by visits to science & technology enterprises in the Auckland region as well as a range of fun activities.  The central purpose of this Forum is to broaden these student’s horizons and assist them in making the best decisions about their future.  Two of these students are then selected to represent NZ at an International Science Forum in London the following year.  This rewarding Rotary run programme will be celebrating its 30th Anniversary in 2019.  For further information please go to the following links or contact Jacqui in the office.
