PRESENTATION OF 6 MONTH REVIEW: President Warwick
 
Pres Warwick mentioned that the first 6 months had been a challenge for him personally, however, stressed that our club is doing a great job and is in a very strong position for which he thanked all RCM members.
Warwick’s first role was in District where he gained knowledge of other club’s activities while being part of RCM. He stressed the importance of the One Page Plan with SAG developed when Frank O’Brien was president and continued with the emphasis on being connected, with networking providing a catalyst for being progressive when Neville Taylor was president. During this time disseminated leadership was developed to continue success with every leader in the club playing their part in club operations. This was, and still is, important for new members to gain knowledge from experienced members.
Part of the club’s success is the way the focus is on the following:
  1. People of action, achievements and impacts on programs
  2. Business partnerships. This part of the plan is still evolving.
  3. Succession planning.
Mention was made of Achievements and Impacts. This can be seen through the impacts on people which devolves into stories for successful engagement of people in the club. For example, the BBQ program where around 40% of club members are involved, the Laos school program where boys and girls can benefit and overall Polio eradication program [inoculated 2.5 billion people].
For business partnerships, corporate social responsibility has devolved into corporate social value [when working with Rotary]. Emphasis was placed on the Design Jam and Vocational Team, District Vocational Service Strategy and RCM mentoring Program for VicPol, Ambulance Victoria and the SES.
In succession planning, RCM has created a presidential pipeline process over a 3 year period to overcome the annual cycle of Rotary.

NEW PROBUS CLUB
BBQ FUND RAISING SUCCESS
Hi Everyone
 
What a great day at Collingwood.......after the heatwave of 20 December 2019
 
With terrific support from Bunnings customers, we were able to take in $1312.70 plus a fantastic $239.65 in donations for Bushfire Relief (about 90% more than normal). After allowing for $230.70 in costs, $1321.65 will go to the Bairnsdale Rotary Club Bushfire Appeal.Thank you so much to you “diehards” for all your efforts, a really great team effort throughout the day. That means that between Peter’s Port Melbourne SS on 3 January and our Collingwood SS today, almost $ 2800 will go towards East Gippsland Fire Relief from our Club.
