Our new President, John Drummond presented his vision for the club in the coming year at the 4th July meeting.  He quoted Tania lowery (DG) “less Hui more Do-Ye”. 

John outlined steps to achieve this: 

  • A goal of a monthly activity using the example of collecting donations at local supermarkets for women’s refuge.  
  • Creating a calendar of events which would allow the club to promote events in advance to the public. By involving non-members at events it will create a way to attract new members.
  • Following up with organisations who the club has provided funds to be able to see the impact they have made. 
  • Connecting internationally to do projects in other countries. 
  • Rebranding the club from the Rotary club of Dunedin to “Rotary Dunedin” and appointing a marketing director.
