The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) has more courses organised for the first half of 2016-2017. RLI is of great benefit to all Rotarians regardless of years of service, and in fact "senior" Rotarian participation is encouraged as their knowledge and experience is invaluable during the workshops.
The course is run over three days at the District 9685 office in Sefton Road, Thornleigh.
The day starts at 8:30 am and finishes around 3:45 pm; morning tea and lunch are supplied.
The course dates are:
RLI 38 runs 15 October, 12 November and 26 November
If you wish to register for one of these courses, please register on-line at rli.rotarydistrict9685.org.au. You will receive a confirmation email and further details on the venue.
If you need any further information, please contact RLI Convenor PDG Ian Scott email@example.com.
Increasing public awareness of the imminent demise of the dreaded Polio virus – and raising vital dollars to fund the end of Rotary’s 40 year PolioPlus campaign – must be the common goal of ALL Rotary Clubs and Districts on World Polio Day … October 24!
Effective fund raising is always a priority, BUT projects that build public awareness and image ensure that we really connect with our respective communities!
In Great Britain, Rotarians are gearing up to sell 50.000 colourful Crocus plans and bulbs to highlight their ‘go purple’ for a day promotion, ie: purple clothes, decorations, hair, offices, purple cake stalls, and sale of teddy bears with purple vests, etc on Polio Day.
In Germany, plans are in place to print one million END POLIO NOW stickers for general distribution – along with special athletic events for children.
In the USA, Million Dollar Community Dinners encouraging people to support Rotary in the wills have proved successful.
Around New Zealand and Australia, many excellent ideas are emerging … main street END POLIO NOW barbecues, bush dances, Battle of the Bands for schools, walkathons, family cycle days, movie nights, $100 Centurian collection poles and jumble sales to name a few.
Clubs are being urged to link with high profile personalities, local politicians and sports men and women to help achieve media coverage.
All events must be high profile, ie: Rotarians wearing the red END POLIO NOW t-shirts and copious numbers of posters and Polio pull-up banners delivering effective messages are important.
No idea it too big or too small but start planning NOW!
- Getting involved with a fun yet different activity
- Only needing a few people – men or women
- Providing an opportunity for your club to be exposed and promoted in your local community
- Working on a common cause with other volunteers – which may even lead to finding a few more new members!!
- Involving no costs as all the required materials such as paint, brushes etc are provided by sponsors – the major one being Dulux. Even murals and green screening can be undertaken.
