District Governor 2017-18
Peter Ward (Anne)
Rotary Club of The Entrance
0414 321 773
Peter Ward joined The Rotary Club of The Entrance in 2004. The attraction at the time was the people he would be associating with. And this still is the case.
He has served as club President first in 2007-8, again in 2011-12 and most recently in 2014-15.
For the coming year 2015-16, Peter will serve as the Assistant Governor for the Central Coast.
Highlights for Peter have been the variety of successful projects he has led ranging from fund raising to the refurbishment of Rotary Park to community engagement days. A common element has been partnering with the local council, community groups or another Rotary Club.
He held the office of Treasurer in 2005-6, 2006-7, 2009-10 and 2010-11 and Vice President in 2008-9 and 2012-13.
Peter has been Youth Director in 2010-11, 2013-14 and in 2014-15 and has supported RYPEN, RYLA, MUNA and RYDA (successfully obtaining funding for RYDA from the local Council). In addition Peter has held chairs for Membership in 2013-14 and Foundation 2005-06 and 2008-09.
Peter is a Centurion and a Paul Harris Fellow.
Peter continues to work in Information Technology with a career spread across Australian and multinational companies having held local and Asia Pacific responsibilities for sales, operations and the occasional project.
Married to Anne, they have two adult sons, two cats, and together they have toured much of Australia. When time permits a quick trip into a national park or to a beach recharges their batteries.
And if Peter wasn’t actively engaged in a Rotary activity he would rather be sailing.
