District 9800 is looking for two new leaders to help with key District programmes.
1. A volunteer Rotarian to coordinate Rotary Australia Benevolent Society [“RABS”] activities in 2014/2015.
Rotary clubs may apply for registration and gain tax deductibility for projects that arouse the compassion of the community and will provide direct relief to people in need in local communities.
The Coordinator will report to the District Chair of Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) and will be required to:
• review RABS applications for their suitability for registration
• attend bi-monthly RAWCS Committee meetings
• submit a brief monthly summary of RABS activities.
2. Rotary Overseas Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC) is inviting applications for a Chairperson for District 9800 for 2014/2015.
ROMAC assists children aged fifteen years or younger, by bringing them to Australia or New Zealand for lifesaving or dignity restoring procedures to improve their quality of life. Cases are accepted only when the required medical treatment is not available to them in their own country. Patients come from developing countries in South East Asia and the Pacific Islands.
The ROMAC District Chair is appointed by the District Governor. Primary responsibilities will focus on:
- Awareness of ROMAC within the District and its Rotary Clubs
- Fundraising and promotion
- Care and support of ROMAC patients and their parents/guardian.
A background in the health sector is desirable but not essential. Applicants should have sound administration skills. You will not be expected to do all of this on your own; you will be assisted and supported by others within the ROMAC “family”. There are also guidelines and procedures available in the ROMAC Manual of Procedures to guide activities. A hand-over by the experienced incumbent will also be arranged.
Any member who is interested in either of these positions please contact President Elect Roy.
