This is the third month of my governorship and I have visited 14 clubs. The response from clubs has been good with regards to Membership growth and TRF givings.
I strongly urge the Club Presidents and Assistant Governors to give attention to the following on an urgent basis:
1. TRF Givings
i. Urge members to fulfil their obligation of per capita of USD 100.
ii. Clubs must become 100% EREY club.
iii. Get at least 2 new PHF – cash paying and not through points.
iv. Upgrade PHFs to become a major donor or get a new major donor in your club.
i. Clubs with less than 10 members should strive to have at least 10 members and clubs with membership of between10-15, should strive to have 20 members by the end of this year.
ii. Recruit members below the age of 40.
iii. To improve the imbalance of gender, recruit lady members.
3. District Conference 8 & 9th December 2017
Each club should get at least 10 members to attend the District Conference to be held at Sunway Resort Hotel, Petaling Jaya. A district conference gives members the opportunity to meet and interact with Rotarians from around the country. They get to listen to speakers from the Rotary world, both local and international. In addition, there will be speakers on non-Rotary subjects. The cost is RM450 per head inclusive of Friday night fellowship dinner and the Governor’s Banquet on Saturday.
Members’ active participation will ensure that all the District goals will be met before the year is over. The clubs will in return receive the Presidential Citation which signifies that they have passed in serving their respective club successfully.
Help launch our Organ Donation Awareness Campaign
We need to go viral on social media. Get the support of the Interactors, Rotaractors and Rotarians to post the registration site for organ donation. Our target is to achieve one million pledges with each and everyone’s help. Register now to pledge as an Organ Donor: www.rotary3300.org
