Preparing for the new rotary year - on-line learning webinars for Club and District Leaders and interested Rotarians and Rotaractors who want to learn more.
The COVID-19 crisis and lockdown has dramatically affected every community around the world and Rotary is no different.
We lost the opportunity to get together for District Assembly after our Conference in May.
However, to quote Winston Churchill - Never waste a good crisis !
And we are not !
Rotarians and Rotaractors throughout NZ and the world have demonstrated fantastic adaptability taking advantage of technology and our internet connected world. Suddenly, Rotarians are rapidly becoming masters of on-line meetings, conferences and discussions keeping our clubs and activities alive and finding it a rewarding experience.
So - we are going to have a bigger and better District Assembly.
The District Learning and Development Committee are organising a series of zoom on-line meetings for our District.
The Schedule is shown below.
Choose the sessions you are interested in and register.
You will be sent a zoom link in email to join the sessions selected. DONT LOSE THE EMAIL !
