Rotary International District 3300 Conference: Arvind Delivers District Governor Nominee Designate Acceptance Speech
Today we proudly stand with the first District Governor Nominee Designate to be nominated from our Club, Arvind U Gopi Kumar. He delivered his acceptance speech at the District Conference and is nominated to serve as Governor in the Rotary year 2024-25.
President Gopaldhass led a delegation of 13 Rotarians from Rotary Club of Bandar Sungai Petani to the 87th District Conference at Wyndham Acmar Hotel Klang today. It was an amazing day when Governor Bindi presented about the amount of good work that Rotarians are doing all around the District in the past 1 year.
Together, We Empower
The Covid-19 pandemic has forced the education system to move to online teaching. We are driven to support and ensure that these young minds keep learning, so that they can continue to strive, so that their dreams are not halted, so that they have a better future. Empowering those who have big dreams to achieve great things — that’s what People of Action do. Learn more at RotarySungaiPetani.org.
This image of Rotarian Arvind helping a young friend start up his new tool for his education was taken during presentation of laptops donated by Micron Malaysia for students to continue learning during the pandemic.
Supporting Education is one of Rotary's Areas of Focus.
Rotarians are People of Action.
Join us. We welcome more People of Action.
Corporations can also get involved.

Rotarians and Rotaractors from 5 Clubs lent a helping hand to the riverine mangrove forest on the banks of Sungai Merbok by planting 200 mangrove trees today. Rotary Clubs of Perlis, Alor Star, Kulim and Bandar Sungai Petani and Rotaract Club of AIMST University joined forces to restore the ecology of the mangrove.
30 members, including District 3300 Governor Dato' Bindi Rajasegaran and District 3300 Community Service Chair Tajul Haslam Datuk Tajuddin, departed Semeling Jetty by boat to the site along the Merbok River. Under the guidance of Kuala Muda Forestry officer, the mangroves were planted in a denuded area and crabs were released into the river.
Environmental sustainability is one of Rotary's Area of Focus. Rotary hopes that this hands-on action will spark further awareness about sustaining our natural environment on our one and only earth for our future generations.
It was a fun day as well, getting hands and beyond dirty while doing good for the world.
